Dorchester Physiotherapy remains CLOSED as the Ministry of Health and the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario have released the following information to help reduce the spread of COVID-19:
Outpatient physiotherapists are restricted to providing emergency care only.
What constitutes emergency care in a private practice setting?
Emergency care includes assessment and therapeutic intervention or services for conditions or situations where not receiving physiotherapy services (whether in-person or virtually) would put the patient’s safety at risk, or there is potential for significant harm, adverse patient outcomes or suffering.
Significant harm, adverse outcomes or suffering means the patient may be at risk of hospital admission or re-admission, long-term incapacity or harm, or it would worsen a chronic condition that may not allow the patient to recover.
We are working on Tele-rehabilitation protocols in order to connect to our patients virtually.
Please do not hesitate to ask questions:
