Triage Protocol for Clients attending Physiovineyards.
- As from 1/6/20 the clinic is open for both remote and face to face consultations.
- Clients needing treatment can only access the service preferable on-line or by telephone. ‘Walk in’ bookings during the Covid19 crisis are not permissible.
- During the Covid19 pandemic , all clients needing face to face treatment are to be triaged by a therapist in the clinic car park. Arrivals are monitored on CCTV. Please just wait in vehicle for the therapist to meet you in the car park. If arriving by foot please ring the door bell and wait outside in the car park.
- The therapist will follow a triage questionnaire in the form of a laminated document to assess each clients risk profile (of Covid19)
- Following completion of risk profile, the therapist will take client’s temperature using a contactless thermometer.
- On accessing the building , the client will be expected to handwash in the cloakroom and if necessary apply a face mask .
- Therapists reserve the right to don PPE as appropriate to each clinical situation
- To minimise the risk of Covid19 transmission, disposable pillow cases and couch roll will be discarded after each treatment session. In addition to this the clinical area will be disinfected as required and the therapist will don new PPE in readiness for next client.
- Wherever possible please pay for treatment using contactless cards . This further reduces risk of Covid19 transmission.
- During the Covid19 situation the waiting room is not available and so far as is possible administrative staff will work remotely.
Independent Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic
We specialise in treatments for musculoskeletal problems, sports injuries, orthopaedic rehabilitation, back and neck injuries.
Are you one of the many people who suffer from pain? Perhaps you have chronic backache, headache, neck pain or are recovering from a fracture or sports injury. Alternatively, you could be frustrated by restricted mobility or feel that poor posture is hampering your general wellbeing. Maybe your lifestyle has changed as a result of an illness such as a stroke, or the onset of Multiple Sclerosis. You could be looking to avoid pain by learning about good posture during pregnancy or finding a rehabilitation programme following fracture, dislocation or surgery.
Physio Vineyards clinic is open to all, you don't need a GP's referral and you don't need to have a chronic condition. All you need is the desire to improve your life – to rid yourself of pain, to learn how to treat your body in a better way, to increase flexibility or to relieve stress.
