Here’s some information on what to expect since you last saw us. As always, safety is our top priority!
As many of you are aware, we had to make the difficult, but critical decision to close our doors, starting on Tuesday morning. We did this out of an abundance of caution, and based on what our colleges and associations were starting to recommend at that time.
We realize that this is having a profound impact on your pain, range of motion, stress levels and progress.
With that in mind, we are offering critical/urgent care for those in need!
You will need to email the clinic at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail 905-855-8372. When we contact you our staff will screen you for any exposure to, or symptoms of the novel corona virus.
If you have travelled outside of Canada in the past few weeks, you should be quarantining for 14 days, and then practicing social distancing afterwards.
If you suspect that you have been exposed to the virus, remember that this isn’t about your individual immunity. You will most likely survive this and recover quickly. Your elderly grandmother, or immunocompromised neighbour who has had cancer treatments might not!
We can do this together, and flatten the curve!
ALSO: Our practitioners are happy to email or call you in response to your questions and concerns
STAY TUNED FOR A VIRTUAL PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICE OFFERING NEXT WEEK!
Here is something to distract you from the news:
This is one of our most frequently asked questions, both by new patients to the clinic, and by our repeat patients.
It can even be more confusing if you have seen your Family Doctor and they have recommended coming to see us for all three services.
Because this is very individualized, based on your preferences and symptoms, the best way to decide is to call and ask to speak with one of our Physiotherapists or Chiropractors. The Registered Massage Therapists are equally able to answer any questions, but are not as available, due to the nature of their treatments.
You are also welcome to drop by and have a few minutes in a private consultation with any of us!
Our mission is to help you get better, enjoy your life, live life’s adventure, regain/retain your independence, and to maximize your performance!
To that end, we will help you decide, based on your symptoms and concerns, which practitioner to start with. We can even help guide you to the person who has the skillset for your particular problems or goals.
And if we feel that you would benefit from seeing someone else, we will refer you to that practitioner, with your consent.
In general, if you have any numbness or tingling start with Physio or Chiro. If you have really tight muscles, and are stressed, start with Massage. The majority of our patients see two types of practitioners because they find the complementary treatments maximize their recovery.
We look forward to helping you!
There are other clinics, such as Pillars of Wellness in Burlington that can help you if you do not live locally.
We are thrilled that Siân has passed her practical exams and is now registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario!
She has worked hard as our PT Assistant while attending massage therapy school these past few years.
Her patients all rave about her massages, as she is able to adapt her techniques for the injury or area of muscle tension. She is capable of deep massages, but will not go beyond your ability to tolerate this.
She starts every new patient with a thorough assessment to ensure she is providing the best care for you, and to determine your goals for massage therapy.
