Treating back, neck, limb and headache pain
As we are in Step 3 of BC’ Restart Plan of the pandemic, some of the regulations and recommendations have lessened. https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/info/restart#step-three
Because we are not checking with each patient about their vaccination status, we are requiring both patient and therapist to wear a face mask during the visit at our office. While this may be becoming more optional in various retail stores and other establishments, in BC most or all healthcare institutions or offices, especially where practitioners are in close contact with patients, are resuming their Step 2 Covid protocols, including the wearing of masks.
We no longer require patients to complete the online BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool before attending each appointment, but based on provincial and licencing board’ recommendations, we are asking that you:
There will be no penalties or late cancellation fees if canceling for illness or having possible COVID-19 symptoms. Please cancel your appointment if you are sick.
Your therapist(s) will regularly monitor their own health and possible exposure to others, and also will regularly utilize the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool, notifying you if there is any cause for concern.
As well, staff/therapists will take all care to wash hands thoroughly before and after every treatment, with treatment rooms and high-touch clinic surfaces cleaned and/or sanitized frequently.
Although we take as much precaution as reasonably possible, as the nature of our treatments do not allow for physical distancing, please be aware that it is impossible to eliminate all risk related to the state of general pandemic. Please consider your own category or tolerance of risk in regards to going out or booking any appointments with us.
Please feel free to respond with any questions or concerns.
