Dalhousie Physiotherapy Clinic: Opening Announcement

As a direct impact of the efforts put forth by the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), Nova Scotia College of Physiotherapy and Dalhousie Physiotherapy Clinic Staff, we are pleased to announce that The Dalhousie Physiotherapy Clinic will be reopening for in-person appointments on June 8th, 2020.

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.


While we will be taking the time in the next few days before opening to release information that provides additional clarity regarding new safety measures and protocols there are a few important notes to start:

1. All new and returning patients will do their initial assessment via Telehealth if it has not already been completed during our temporary suspension of in-person appointments.

Note: Our top priority is your health and safety – an initial Telehealth appointment will allow us the opportunity to stand by this statement. During this appointment we will be able to discuss what an in-person visit would entail.

2. We ask that you bring your own mask to your in-person appointment – if you forget we will have a limited stock of single use masks available.

3. Entry will be permitted through the “old” Dalplex doors (now recognized as emergency exits at the top of the stairs headed down towards the clinic/ pool area)

4. An initial screen will be conducted the day before your appointment via telephone or our MEDEO Telehealth platform, and upon your arrival to clinic one of our therapy assistants will screen you for a second time which will include a temperature check with a Health Canada approved “no-touch” thermometer.

5. Online booking will become available again on June 10th, 2020 for patients who have completed their initial assessment via Telehealth. If you have not had your initial assessment your online booking with not be submitted correctly.

We will continue to arrange virtual physiotherapy care for patients who do not feel comfortable coming into the clinic for in-person appointments, or do not require an in-person appointment.

Please contact ptclinic@dal.ca or call 902 494-1502 to schedule an appointment.
See you soon!

IMPORTANT COURSE UPDATES

To all individuals who have registered for SPC First/Professional Responder for Sport & Healthcare Professionals and/or Acupuncture Canada’s Dry Needling Level 1 we have prepared the following update on the COVID-19 situation as it pertains to the Dalhousie Physiotherapy Clinic, scheduled courses, and Dalhousie University.  

Until further notice we are going to be closed in keeping with the guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada and Nova Scotia Public Health websites. In keeping with the current recommendations of the various public health agencies, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, and the provincial section, we have made changes to the following development courses:

Acupuncture Canada’s Dry Needling Level 1 has been postponed until January 15, 16 & 17, 2021 - (Course contact: Kyle Crosby PT)

Dry Needling Level 2 will be held June 4, 5 & 6, 2021 (Course contact: Kyle Crosby PT)

Dalhousie University has shut down operations to non-essential services, so, for this reason, we will be in limited contact and are working remotely to settle our future courses for the time being. For those who have registered and made payments, we will reimburse them as soon as we return to our workplace, as we do not have access to our payment systems.

To our course collaborators (Sport Physiotherapy Canada & Acupuncture Canada) we would like to extend our thanks to your team and hope that we can continue to work together in the future when the current health risks are better controlled. We look forward to continuing education hosted by the Dalhousie Physiotherapy Clinic.

Thank you again, we appreciate your continued support and cooperation.
