COVID-19 Precautions at Flex Physiotherapy

The health and well-being of our patients is always our first priority at Flex Physiotherapy.

Whenever it is possible, we are providing our expert physiotherapy service by video link directly to your home. Our team are now experienced Tele-physiotherapy providers, and have successfully helped patients with problems including:

  • back pain
  • elbow pain
  • post-op rehabilitation
  • knee arthritis
  • home strengthening programs
  • and more...

We continue to treat patients in our Murdoch rooms for urgent concerns or to fit splints and braces. With the current concerns about COVID-19 we are following all best practice measures to ensure we minimise any chances of transmitting the virus in our clinic.

Temperature testing is performed at the clinic entrance for all staff and visitors upon arrival.

All surfaces in the waiting area and treatment areas are being cleaned and disinfected regularly throughout the day, diligent hand washing and sanitising is being practiced by both staff and patients, and we are maintaining safe distancing by asking patients to wait for their appointments outside our rooms.

We will continue to follow the guidelines provided by the WHO and Australian health agencies to minimise the spread of the coronavirus in Perth.

When to cancel your appointment

At the time of writing (27 March 2020) the official advice is that people should still feel free to attend their physiotherapy appointments, unless they:

  • Have returned from overseas in the last 14 days;
  • Or have been in contact with someone who is a confirmed case of Coronavirus COVID-19;
  • Or have a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, difficulty breathing, fatigue, or any cold/flu like symptoms.

If you fit these criteria please self-isolate at home until the 15th day following travel or contact, even if you are well. If you are showing respiratory or flu-like symptoms, present to the nearest public hospital emergency department where the most up to date isolation precautions, testing and treatments are available.

Where to next?

Flex Physiotherapy will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, and we will notify our patients immediately if the official advice changes significantly. We are keen to continue to provide the highest quality of physiotherapy care for our patients, including the use of video consultations – also known as Telehealth Consultations.

These are challenging times for us all, but we will come through it strongly as we work together, listen to expert advice, and stay calm! Health and peace to you and your family.

Ian and the Flex Physio team.
