As a medical service, Physiotherapists can stay open during the new Covid Lockdown.
Here to help
We’re delighted we’re able to stay open during the most recent lockdown so we can continue to help people in pain.
After the first lockdown, we saw so many people in clinic who had suffered for months without access to Physiotherapy. They had no option but to put up with pain and many of them suffered for far longer than they would usually have had to. So it’s great news that we can stay open this time.
Dedicated to keeping you safe
Whilst it’s great news that we can stay open, that means we have to make sure everyone who comes to the clinic is as safe as possible.
Since we reopened in June after the first lockdown, we’ve had a range of measures in place to do just that.
Before an appointment, we screen everyone to make sure they’re not showing signs of the virus. We check everyone’s temperature when they arrive. That’s patients and staff. We wear mask, gloves, and aprons, and we wash and sanitise our hands between every patient. We clean the treatments rooms, and reception areas between every patient visit. We clean anything anyone has been in contact with. We also have gaps between patient appointments to try to reduce the number of patients in the clinic at a time.
With all that in place, we’re confident that our clinics are as safe as possible. Everyone who has been has been very happy with the measures we’re taking, and plenty have said how confident they feel that they’re safe when they come.
Don’t put it off
We are here to help, even during this time. Even at the best of times, us humans are terrible at looking after ourselves. If something hurts, we put off doing anything about it for weeks, or even months. We think it will go away. Or maybe it’s not THAT bad. Then before you know it, you’ve stopped doing some of your normal activities because of it.
Life is limited enough at the moment without pain stopping you doing the few things you are allowed to do at the moment. So, if you’re not sure whether you need treatment, or whether Physio will help, then book a free 15 minute online consultation with one of our Physios. You can do it from the safety (and warmth) of your own home, and find out whether you need to do something to sort the pain, and if so, what!
If you’re not ready to do that, we have some great resources and information in our resources section right here on the website. You can get regular hints and tips on all kinds of things, including how to reduce pain if you’re working from home, by following us on Facebook
