We hope to provide a better, more accessible path to the assessment and treatment of muscle, bone and joint problems in the North Okanagan. We are challenging the traditional often slow and onerous pathway to treatment!
Richard Healy, Carey Jones and the rest of Priest Valley Physiotherapy will be teaming up with Orthopaedic surgeons, Dr.Secretan, Dr.Sernik and Dr.Jarvie who we have shared a space with for the past three years.
During this period, it has become very clear that there are significant benefits in terms of patient care by developing a fully integrated team at the clinic.
This allows full coordination and communication between the surgeons, physicians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and kinesiologists creating quicker and better access to quality care that you, our patients deserve.
We are extremely excited by the fact that Dr Jennifer Thomas, specialist in Physical Medicine, (muscles, bones, joints and nerve) and Dr Liz Ariano, family doctor with Sports Medicine designation have joined the clinic and will be receiving referrals for consultations at the beginning of the New Year.
The ultimate goal will be to establish this as a centre for all problems that patients are encountering with muscles, bones, joints and nerves and arthritis.
This will include assessment, treatment planning, Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine consultations, Physio, OT and Kinesiology. In addition, we will offer a comprehensive injection therapy program, including corticosteroid, PRP and visco-supplementation and custom and off the shelf bracing options.
This integrated clinical model is being fully recommended nationally and internationally and has achieved significant success.
Referrals from your family doctor can be sent via e mail or fax for the surgeons/physicians/physiotherapists and directly through the patient for physiotherapy.
We welcome the opportunity to work with all of our existing and new patients!
