We have been closely following how our Provincial and National Health Authorities have guided physiotherapy clinics on the best strategies to keep our patients safe while also welcoming them back into the clinic for treatments.
We will be open for BOTH in-clinic and virtual physiotherapy appointments starting May 19th 2020. The clinic may look slightly different but we can promise that you will still receive the highest quality of care.
We will be offering:
- Clinical Pilates Physiotherapy
- Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy (External exam/treatment only)
- Registered Massage Therapy
This visual gives you an idea of what you can expect from us.
You will go through the following screening protocol both when booking the appointment and when you arrive on the day of your appointment.
- Do you have any of the following:
Fever , Chills , Cough, Shortness of breath, Sore throat/painful swallowing, Stuffy or runny nose, Lost sense of taste or smell, Headache, Loss of appetite, Fatigue, Diarrhea , Nausea/Vomitting, Black discolouration of toes

If you answer YES to any of these 4 questions you will be unable to come for an in-person appointment and will be booked for a virtual appointment instead. If you do not feel comfortable taking an in-person visit for any reason please allow us to help you schedule a virtual appointment.
If you answer NO to all 4 screening questions than you will be able to choose either in-person or virtual physio appointments.
