Celebrating National Physical Therapy Month 2020

October is National Physical Therapy month and we're celebrating by recognizing our fabulous team of therapists! We appreciate their dedication to our patients and the physical therapy field!

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services second edition of Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, more than 80% of adults and adolescents do not get enough physical activity. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants play a critical role in helping Americans of all ages and abilities achieve their physical activity goals, and improve their quality of life.

COVID-19 Update: Safety

Our customers are our first priority - that’s why we want to keep you up to date on changes to the way we work, how we’re prioritizing your needs and those of our employees, and more.

Your support has allowed us to remain open through this unprecedented time and provide quality care to the South Lyon and surrounding communities - thank you!

Need to schedule physical therapy?
We are here and ready to help you! We are happy to assist with obtaining insurance benefits for physical therapy prior to scheduling if desired. If you have questions or concerns about your health, call your doctor first, who can guide you on accessing the right care.

 

Wondering about our safety efforts regarding COVID-19?

We recognize that you may have concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19). Safety is one of our core values and a top priority. If you need to receive care in-person, safety protocols are in place to protect you and our employees: 

  •  Enhanced cleaning in accordance with CDC standards, including increased frequency and special attention to frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs and counters;

  • Social distancing measures wherever possible, including the use of our private treatment rooms for evaluations and treatment sessions;

  • Entry screening for patients and employees to check temperatures and symptoms;

  • Frequent hand hygiene - including hand-washing with soap and hand sanitizing - by patients and employees;

  • Use of N95 respirator masks and surgical face masks by staff;

  • Restricted entry with visitor safety guidelines, no symptomatic workers, and remote work when possible.

 

Thank you for your consideration in supporting a local, small business!

COVID-19 Update: Mask & Social Distancing Policy

For the safety of our staff and other patients, we encourage you to wear a mask and practice social distancing (whenever possible) while receiving treatment in our facility.

  

Masks are available for patient purchase for $1.00 each, while supplies last.

The COVID-19 situation is fluid and changing, so we will continue to monitor guidelines established by the CDC as well as state and local governments and provide updates as necessary. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us by telephone or email.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, and promise we will remain committed in an ongoing basis to the safety of our patients, staff, and community.

COVID-19 Update

Governor Gretchen Whitmer released Executive Order 2020-21 this morning (to take effect tonight) regarding a "Stay Home, Stay Safe" protocol (read more here). The Executive Order from Gretchen Whitmer as well as the Department of Homeland Security (DOHS) have classified physical therapy as a part of the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce. This means that the State of Michigan and DOHS has deemed it imperative for us to continue with our regular operations in order to unload the burden on the rest of the medical community as they manage the COVID-19 situation. As a result, we remain open and available for physical therapy appointments to alleviate pain and restore function (especially for post-surgical patients).

The COVID-19 situation is fluid and changing, so we will continue to monitor guidelines established by the CDC as well as state and local governments and provide updates as necessary. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us by telephone or email.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, and promise we will remain committed in an ongoing basis to the safety of our patients, staff, and community.

COVID-19 Update: Temporary Hold on Massage Therapy

Pursuant to Executive Orders 2020-20 (click here for details), 2020-43 (click here for details), and 2020-69 (click here for details), we will be suspending all massage therapy services until May 29 or until clearance is granted by the Governor, whichever is later. If you have an massage therapy appointment scheduled within the next several weeks, we will be contacting you to reschedule for a later date and time that is convenient for you. 

The CDC recommends that all individuals continue to take the following basic personal-hygiene measures to prevent the spread of viruses, such as influenza, the common cold, or COVID-19:

  • If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, call your health care provider. If you do not have a health care provider, call the nearest hospital.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.

  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.

  • If you are sick, stay home, and avoid contact with others.

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others when in a public setting.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and provide updates as necessary. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us by telephone or email.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, and promise we will remain committed in an ongoing basis to the safety of our patients, staff, and community.

COVID-19 Update

We remain committed to the safety of our patients, staff, and community. As such, please be assured that we are taking extra steps as precautionary measures to combat COVID-19. We have been closely monitoring and adhering to the health recommendations regarding cleaning and disinfectant procedures as directed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and state and local departments of health.

The following anti-viral procedures have always been in effect at our facility, but are currently increased in frequency and thoroughness:

1) Using Clorox wipes and Sanizide disinfectant to wipe down treatment tables, equipment (such as exercise equipment, modalities, and doorknobs), and commonly touched surfaces after each patient or staff use.

2) Washing hands thoroughly using soap and warm water before and after each patient interaction. 

3) Making available a public sink so patients can wash their hands thoroughly with warm water and soap, as well as placing several alcohol-based hand sanitizers at various locations in the clinic.

4) Changing and laundering pillowcases and linens with detergent and bleach after each patient use. 

5) Utilizing our private, individual treatment rooms for all patient care to ensure social distancing is observed.

6) Spacing out appointments so there are less than 10 patients and staff in the clinic at any given time to ensure crowd limitation recommendations are observed.

The CDC recommends that all individuals continue to take the following basic personal-hygiene measures to prevent the spread of the virus:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol;
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands;
• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing;
• Avoid handshakes;
• Avoid contact with sick people who are sick; and
• Stay home when you are sick.

Please phone to cancel your appointment(s) if you or a family member are experiencing a fever or cold-like symptoms.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and provide updates as necessary. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us by telephone or email.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, and promise we will remain committed in an ongoing basis to the safety of our patients, staff, and community.
