CLINIC UPDATE COVID-19
A message to all of our amazing clients,
What a couple of weeks we have had! We are sending you all the love and encouragement we can muster and convey through this screen! The Elle Physiotherapy and Pelvic Health Team has been in constant discussion and vigilance amidst the current COVID-19 situation. We are taking our cues from both the Chief Medical Officer as well as our provincial governing body Physiotherapy Alberta.
As of April 27th, 2020 and the newest social distancing and business restrictions, the Government of Alberta has stated that "all non-emergency or non-critical health services provided by regulated health professionals or registered professionals" be stopped.
This means that all in-person assessment and treatment will be cancelled and/or rescheduled to a later date. We will however, continue to offer assessments, education, treatment, exercise prescription and progression to any and all clients via Telehealth or Online Appointments to maintain continuity of care. Your health and wellness are important, especially now during this global pandemic. Self-isolation should not mean a decline in your health.
We understand that the concept of online physiotherapy feels a little strange, but because of the philosophy of care that we employ, the education that we give, and the exercise options that we prescribe, it's an effective delivery of physiotherapy services. Remember, we believe that it's less about our magic hands, and more about your understanding and ability to make changes within yourself that create lasting changes. We've been treating online for the past couple weeks and it's been going great!
Through all these changes and uncertain times, we are walking with you. It’s important to us that women continue to feel supported and cared for during these times. We will do our very best to offer excellence in care and ensure safety for our staff and patients.
We will update you as soon as any changes come down the pipe from Alberta Health or our governing body. Be well dear ones!
Much love and affection,
Your Elle Physiotherapy and Pelvic Health Team
