In-Clinic Appointments. 

We are pleased to announce that in compliance with the NS Department of Health and the NS College of Physiotherapists, we will be reopening for in-clinic appointments on June 5. 

There are a few things to consider when booking an appointment.

  • Non-essential travel is still recommended. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been using Telehealth virtual appointments. Telehealth may be recommended for follow up appointments if your physiotherapist feels it is necessary. 
  • When booking your appointment you will be asked screening questions for symptoms of COVID-19. You will also be screened upon arrival for your appointment. If you have any symptoms associated with COVID-19 you will be directed to contact 811
  • Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
    • fever (chills, sweats)
    • cough or worsening of a previous cough
    • sore throat
    • headache
    • shortness of breath
    • muscle aches
    • sneezing
    • nasal congestion or runny nose
    • hoarse voice
    • diarrhea
    • unusual fatigue
    • loss of sense of smell or taste
    • red, purple or blueish lesions on the feet, toes or fingers without clear cause. 
  • We will be keeping a register of all people who enter the clinic for the purpose of contact tracing
  • We will ask that patients wait in their car until their appointment time, to minimize in-clinic traffic.
  • Physiotherapists and support staff will undergo screening for COVID-19 prior to coming to work each day
  • Physiotherapists, staff and patients are expected to follow public health recommendations for personal hygiene, including cough etiquette and hand hygiene.  
  • The patients and staff will be required to use hand sanitizer upon entering the clinic, entering and exiting the treatment area, before and after use of shared equipment and prior to processing payment. 
  • Patient care items and areas will be cleaned and disinfected between each patient/use and high-touch areas will be disinfected regularly throughout each day. 
  • Physiotherapists will be using personal protective equipment (PPE) in the form of surgical or procedural masks and will be masked throughout the duration of the patient visit. 
  • Patients will also be required to wear a mask (cloth is acceptable) upon entering the clinic and for the entire visit. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you at a cost of $2. 
    • instructions for donning and doffing masks can be found here
  • A physical distance of 2 meters will be maintained between all people in the clinic, with visible markings. This policy has the following exceptions:
    • between the physiotherapist and patient, who are both wearing masks
    • members of the same household or family bubble
