URGENT / CRITICAL CASES

NOW OFFERING PHYSIOTHERAPY & CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES FOR URGENT / CRITICAL CASES

Starting Wednesday, May 27th, we are open for urgent cases.

At Peach Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre, we recognize that these exceptional times require exceptional measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to reduce the demand on our health system.

With careful consideration and preparation, we are ready to re-open our doors to urgent care only. For all other patients, we will continue to provide virtual telehealth services.

Urgent Care Criteria:

Physiotherapy and chiropractic services are only considered urgent in the following cases:

  • Starting post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Severe pain
  • New neurological symptoms
  • Signs of infection
  • Spinning vertigo
  • Concussion
  • Recent motor vehicle accident

Screening:

  • Patients should first perform a self-screen to identify whether they meet our criteria as an urgent patient and screen negative for COVID-19
  • Patients who contact our clinic via telephone or email will be additionally screened for urgency
  • The physiotherapist/chiropractor has the ability to make the final decision regarding who may attend as an urgent patient
  • Only patients who remain urgent will be seen for an in-person appointment
