The Victorian Government has deemed Physiotherapy an essential service, to keep patients out of hospital and doctor’s practices for musculoskeletal injuries and ailments during Stage 4 restrictions.
As a result Restore will still be open for business Monday to Saturday.
The Victorian Government has also allowed people to travel greater than 5km to receive essential healthcare.
Restore has already made a number of changes to our services to ensure that we are adhering to Government and Department of Health Guidelines. Including, providing Online consultations, see details below:
We acknowledge that some patients may not feel comfortable attending Restore at this time. In response to this Restore is happy to now offer online consults with all our available physiotherapists. This will be conducted via an online platform.
Our physiotherapists are experts at giving advice, exercise prescription and injury management all of which can be provided remotely.
So, if you have sustained an injury and want some advice and management strategies to deal with this at home or would like to continue your Clinical Exercises without having to leave the house then contact reception for more details regarding our online service.
Restore is a COVID Safe workplace and we will continue our high level of hygiene measures and practices to ensure the health of our clients and staff is the highest priority.
- All patients and staff are required to wear a mask within the practice.
- Physiotherapists will also wear Face shields for face to face consults to protect both clients and staff.
- Asking patients to wash hands and/or use hand sanitizer on entry to Restore.
- Wiping down and sanitization of all equipment and treatment surfaces before and after patient use.
- Adhering to social distance measures within the clinic.
Finally, we would once again, like to thank you, our amazing clients for your continued support during this difficult time. We acknowledge that everyone has been affected in some form during this latest lockdown, but together we will get through this.
