Careful Reopening for In-Person Physiotherapy Care May 2020

We are cautiously excited and relieved to announce that we are implementing careful steps to be able to once again offer in-person Physiotherapy visits in the clinic beginning after the May long weekend.

We can move ahead with this re-opening due to the Phase 2 plan set out by BC Restart Plan which included Physiotherapy with the possibility of opening after the May long weekend.  We have received confirmation that we are now allowed to open May 19th to provide in person services for cases that require in person care.  We will begin rescheduling any appointments May 19th in the clinic with gradual increase that week. We will still be providing VIDEO appointments for patients who need assistance but cannot attend the clinic safely or do not require in person care.  For patients attending the clinic, we have created processes and procedures to keep all patients and our Body Works team safe, based upon guidelines set out by Provincial Health Officer, WorkSafeBC, BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) and the College of Physical Therapists of BC (CPTBC).

If you are interested in booking an appointment, please book an appointment onlinecall us at 604-983-6616 and leave a voicemail, or email us at info@body-works.ca.

Here is a summary of our protocol and what to expect once we are able to return to seeing you in the clinic:
