As you have most likely heard, the Ontario government has expanded Physiotherapy treatment options to include non essential in-person treatments.
While I am excited to be able to offer in-person treatment, we as physiotherapists are directed by our regulatory body, the college of physiotherapist of Ontario as follows:
Physiotherapists “are REQUIRED to limit the number of in-person visits for your safety and the safety of patients” and that we “are ONLY permitted to provide in-person care when we are satisfied that the benefits of providing care in-person outweigh the risks and appropriate infection control and prevention measures are in place”. See link for more information
For your health and safety, the preferred mode of treatment delivery remains Virtual Care. I have been doing this for the last two months and the feedback has been excellent.
Each of the clinics I work out of have taken measures to ensure your safety. Please see the clinic website for policies and procedures related to COVID-19 and to help you plan for your visit.
I look forward to hearing from you!
