Corona Virus COVID-19, 3rd November 2020

We are in a constant changing situation concerning the spread of COVID-19 virus. Please keep checking for updates and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call.

The practice is open. Osteopaths wear full PPE so we are able to continue to offer treatments. But in order to keep everyone safe please only come if you are well and have not been exposed to the virus.

If you are struggling with musculoskeletal pain

If you are experiencing pain then the first thing to do is to give me a call on Tel: 01278 722650. We can discuss your problem at length and I will need to ask you some questions on your health and your households health to ensure its safe for us to meet. During times of lockdown, you are able to travel to and from medical appointments so you are allowed to seek osteopathic treatment.

If you have a new persistent cough or fever

If you have a new persistent cough isolate yourself for at least 7 days and isolate the whole family for 14 days, i.e. don’t go out at all.

I cannot treat you if you have these symptoms.

Don’t call 111, unless you are struggling to manage your symptoms.

Changes to Appointments

In order to allow for social distancing, please arrive at your appointment time and stay in your car until I come and get you. This will allow me to ensure that the last patient has left and that the room is cleansed and ready for your treatment. I will be wearing a mask and plastic apron/overall. When you come in you will be asked to use alcohol gel before and after your treatment.

We will not be able to keep social distancing during your treatment so please bring a face covering with you, as per government guideline.

If you are in the more vulnerable category of health.

If you are struggling with pain and are unsure, or unable to attend the practice because of the virus, then please still call. Sometime just talking through the issue helps. We can work out some stretches or positions that might help. I can also screen you for any other pathologies that might be causing pain and refer you on if necessary.

If you need advice on anything above or you cannot get out and are suffering with musculoskeletal pain, then please call
