March 24th, 2020: COVID-19 Closure Update
Rougemount Physiotherapy cares very much about the safety and wellness of our patients, staff, their families and our greater community. Be assured this is our top priority. COVID-19 has created unprecedented and challenging times for everyone. We are all in this together!
Due to the recent directives from the Ontario Medical Officer of Health all non-essential physiotherapist services are to be suspended.
As a result, for everyone’s safety our clinic will remain closed until the directives change.
We understand the times which we all are facing are stressful and uncertain. We know that the disruption of your physiotherapy and massage therapy care is for some distressing. We want our clients to know that we are here for them should they need to ask for advice or have questions answered.
All our physiotherapists are available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the clinic voicemail. We are checking messages regularly and will respond as soon as possible. We may be limited by not having a face to face interaction but we can return an email or arrange a phone call as needed.
Please do not hesitate to email us if you need us to reach out for advice, or clarification on matters to do with your physiotherapy.
We are suspending all physiotherapy appointments until further notice. If you have appointments booked, please check back with our website, the appointments will remain booked for when we return. We will be contacting everyone when we know a date of return. If your last appointment was cancelled and you do not have further appointments, we will be contacting you once we have re-opened.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we all navigate these circumstances while working to maintain our health and protect each other.
Cathy Kammerer and the Rougemount Physiotherapy Team
For over 20 years, Rougemount Physiotherapy has been helping our clients overcome physical injury and pain. Established in 1996, our vision was to develop a clinic with experienced Registered Physiotherapists and Registered Massage Therapists with a variety of skills to analyse our client’s source of pain and dysfunction. From there an individualized treatment plan would be developed incorporating various treatment techniques such as manual therapy, soft tissue release, therapeutic exercise and modalities to help you manage your pain, resolve your dysfunction and prevent further injury.
One on one care is provided by your treating practitioner in a welcoming and safe environment. We do not use assistants or aides in our clinic.
Knowledge Is Key
At Rougemount Physiotherapy in Pickering, we encourage you to take an active role in your rehabilitation and maintenance through knowledge gained by education, and effective participation with your treating practitioner.
We encourage you to ask questions so you may understand why you came to need our help and how you can eventually maintain your results on your own in your regular daily activities.
Education, Treatment, Participation and Prevention all lead to wellness.
