COVID Update: Lockdown restrictions

Tuesday August 18th 2021

In line with the latest ACT Government guidelines, we are only open for essential physiotherapy services between Fri August 13th and Thurs September 2nd. Hydrotherapy and Exercise classes will not be available during this period. 

If you have any urgent health concerns during the extended lockdown period, please call us, to arrange either a face-to-face or telehealth (online) physiotherapy consultation. 

We are operating a reduced capacity during this lockdown period. If we are unavailable to take your call please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible.

Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to welcoming you back into the clinic shortly with a full range of services. 

Thank you for your ongoing support of Belconnen Physiotherapy Clinic.

We are open during the Coronavirus pandemic

The Coronavirus does not mean you have to stay at home in pain. Watch this video to see how we can help you during this time.

Like you, we are concerned about the outbreak of the Coronavirus and would like to reassure you that we are taking all measures to ensure your health and safety while visiting our clinic. The safety of our clients and our staff is our priority and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation while we all work together.

Pain issues and being sedentary can actually increase your odds of becoming unwell, so we are open for business. If you are well, please come in for your appointments and/or classes, knowing that we are meeting the highest level of infection control that aligns with the best practice guidelines.

Infection control measures:

  • Please use the hand sanitiser provided at stations situated around the clinic
  • Regular disinfecting and sanitising of high traffic areas, patient contact points and reception areas.
  • Changing of linen that comes into contact with patients such as towels and pillowcases.
  • Social distancing has been promoted by moving the chairs in the waiting room to a safer distance.
  • All staff will remain home if they are showing any signs of illness.
  • Physiotherapy consultations are always one on one interaction which makes them safer than other community interactions.

Exercise classes:

  • All equipment is disinfected before and after each class.
  • Please bring your own large towel or other equipment (Pilates mat) if you have them.
  • We will be implementing strategies in the classes to maximise the space we have around each other to abide by the government’s recommendation of social distancing.

If you are unwell:

If you do have cold or flu symptoms, or if you have been overseas recently or in contact with such a person, please let us know before attending the clinic so that we can discuss alternative options for your appointments and treatment.

Video call physiotherapy (Telehealth consultations):

If you require physiotherapy and you are not able to come into the clinic, please ask us about our one-on-one video call consultations:

  • Your consultation will include a thorough assessment, advice, exercises and a personalised treatment plan to manage your injury independently at home.
  • Some private health companies are able to offer rebates on telehealth consultations.
  • Telehealth consultations are strongly supported by current research evidence.
  • Unfortunately, Medicare Enhanced Primary Care plan rebates are only available for face-to-face consultations. Click here for more information.

We would like to thank you all for your ongoing support in this difficult and unique situation. Please get in touch with us if you have any further questions or concerns.
