|Below you will find out more info on the total closure of the clinic due to the pandemic ordinance. |
Hello again! In light of observing rapidly evolving responses to contain COVID-19/protect vulnerable populations I have decided to close the office for the next couple of weeks (3/16/20 – 3/30/20). Given the nature of my work, it is nearly impossible to ensure that I would not spread the disease were I to come in contact with someone who had it, even with the increased cleaning and screening procedures I implemented last week.
I hope you understand that I did not come to this decision lightly. The fact of the matter is that the majority of my patient population is not in the risk pool. That being said, there are enough of you who are. My duty to protect my patient base as a whole, and their families and communities at large forced this decision. I deeply apologize for the disruption in care and will be reaching out to those who have appointments scheduled during this time frame individually.
What does this mean for your care?
Fortunately, this doesn’t mean that you have completely lost access to me during the closure! For the next couple of weeks I am going to try my hand at helping you without my hands through video chat. I have a few different options for how we can set up a session via FaceTime, Skype, or Google Duo. My availability and pricing will remain the same as coming to see me normally.
I have blocked online scheduling for the moment so if you would like to schedule an e-visit, please reach out via phone, text, or email and we can get something set up. I would recommend having a few things on hand for these types of visits, but not having them doesn’t mean we can’t figure something out.
Items include: a foam roller, a lacrosse/tennis ball, resistance loops/bands and a door anchor, hand weights to include a kettlebell.
What you can expect from one of these telehealth consultations is mostly what you get now, which is an assessment of what may be going wrong, and what can be done to fix it. The only major difference is that we will be looking for movement based solutions for your problems versus hands-on ones.
I know that many of you come to see me specifically for my hands-on approach and will not be at all offended if none of you take advantage of these types of visits. Rest assured we will be back to business as usual once the situation settles out. In the meantime I will also be posting more general mobility and movement options to my Instagram account, so please follow me @elevate_sns if you would like to see that content!
I wish you all the best during these trying times, and I am here to help in any way that I can. It is going to take the coming together of all people to do things, hard things, that may be more in the best interest of their neighbor than themselves for a little while to overcome this thing, which we will.
Life is just going to be a little different for awhile, and different is okay, different is how we grow. I look forward to sending the next message out that says that everything is back to normal, and I will see you at your next appointment. Until then, as my high school principal used to say “Take care of yourselves, and each other,” and as always…
