AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM HANDS ON PHYSICAL THERAPY REGARDING COVID-19
Hands On Physical Therapy is committed to following and adhering to the rapidly changing criteria around the current COVID-19 (CoronaVirus) pandemic. We are regularly monitoring local, state, federal and CDC guidelines and recommendations. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients and staff. We believe that each and everyone of us has a responsibility to help keep the curve flattened and prevent needless spread to others. In this light we are continuing to see our patients, but have instituted some changes in the delivery of your care.
We realize that Physical Therapy is an essential medical need for many. For this reason, we are here for you and will be able to provide care to you.
We are staggering appointment times to avoid patient-to-patient contact and to allow for increased time for cleaning and disinfecting.
We ask, when possible, please do not bring others with you to your appointment.
If you arrive early, if possible, please wait in your car until your scheduled appointment time.
Hands On Physical Therapy’s staff wear mask for your safety and ours. Because of the nature of how we deliver Physical Therapy, true physical distancing is not possible (we frequently have our hands on you). For this reason, we are asking all of our patient’s to wear a mask while in therapy, if you do not have your own mask, we will have masks available for you.
To help protect our staff and other patients, we ask that those patients needing to come in, not have any signs of illness (cough, fever, difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or smell) or have had potential exposure to others infected with the CoronaVirus. If you have either of these, please call to reschedule your appointment.
TO ASSIST IN SOCIAL DISTANCING AND TO ACCOMMODATE THOSE WITH HEALTH CONCERNS, WE ARE ALSO OFFERING TELEHEALTH / VIRTUAL PHYSICAL THERAPY APPOINTMENTS. These TeleHealth appointments will allow us conduct your appointment online, in real time. These appointments will allow us to walk you through: self corrections, self taping techniques, having a spouse or family member assist your treatment, progress your home exercise and stretching program, assessing your posture as you adjust to your new home work stations….
More information about the CoronaVirus can be found on the CDC’s website www.cdc.gov.
Please Stay Positive, Keep Smiling and most importantly Keep Moving!
