Chiropractic & Physiotherapy Services Now Open!
We are happy to announce that as of Monday, May 4, 2020, patients can be seen for in-clinic Chiropractic and Physiotherapy treatments as per Phase 1 of Alberta’s Relaunch Strategy.
We have installed plexiglass barriers, obtained personal protective equipment, and employed strict sanitizing procedures to ensure patient and staff safety.
We are limiting bookings at this time to adhere to social distancing protocols. Under these guidelines we are asking patients to arrive alone for treatments (with the exception of minors and those with impairments requiring assistance). We are also asking patients to wait in their vehicles if possible, and we will call you to enter the clinic when your practitioner advises. We ask that patients wear masks when they attend treatments. We will provide masks if needed. Practitioners will also be wearing masks at all times.
We will be asking every patient to answer the following questions prior to each visit:
1. Do you have current symptoms of COVID-19, such as:
a. a fever,
b. a new or changed chronic cough,
c. a sore throat that is not related to a known or preexisting condition
d. a runny nose that is not related to a known or preexisting condition
e. Nasal congestion that is not related to a known or preexisting condition
f. Shortness of breath that is not related to a known or preexisting condition
2. Have you traveled internationally within the last 14 days?
3. Have you had unprotected close contact with individuals who have a confirmed or presumptive diagnosis of COVID-19 (e.g. individuals exposed without appropriate PPE in use).
Patients answering YES to ANY of these questions will be asked to reschedule for a period where 10 days have passed from symptom onset or until symptoms resolve, whichever is longer.
We will still be offering Tele-Health (virtual medicine) for all patients as needed. Please contact our office for instructions regarding the easy-to-use doxy.me online platform.
Acupuncture is expected to resume May 14, 2020. We will notify our patients when this is approved.
Massage therapy and Exercise Therapy/Kinesiology is expected to resume once Stage 2 of the Alberta Governments Re-Open Program has been approved.
Although we are excited to resume care for our patients, we understand the significance of this pandemic. We must all continue to follow the directives from the Chief Medical Officer of Health to ensure that Albertans stay healthy and that we can continue to Re-Open Alberta.
