Our community is coping with an issue of global scale, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by COVID-19.
At Priest Valley Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, we believe it is our responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and well-being of our patients and practitioners, and playing a constructive role in supporting local health and government officials as they work to contain the virus.
For almost 20 years, it has been our mission to enrich the health of patients, and we continue to do so in these troubling times by moving to a tele-rehabilitation model. This is covered by many benefit providers and will allow us to continue to offer care to patients while supporting public health initiatives. Please call our office if you are interested in trying this option. Currently, physiotherapists and kinesiologists are available for questions during the closure. Phone your specialist directly to get exercises, tips on staying active and techniques to continue your rehabilitation from home.
To reduce strain on Vernon Jubilee Hospital, our clinic has become a designated Interior Health Authority site for the cast clinic and for orthopedic clinic patients. Please do not drop in to the clinic even if people appear to be visiting.
This is a dynamic situation and it is our intent to remain transparent. We are privileged to serve you and our community and look forward to seeing you soon.
