  • Covid-19 Info: Keeping You Safe

    We are currently open, working with current patients and taking new patients.

    We are seeing clients in the clinic and our staff is taking extra steps to ensure the cleanliness of the clinic space. You may notice some changes that we have implemented to protect our patients and staff.

    • We have been practicing all sanitation and recommended precautions from the CDC, Iowa Department of Health and our professional organization (APTA) to reduce risk of exposure as much as possible.  We not only increased frequency of common area sanitation, but have sanitation procedures in place to sanitize all contacted surfaces between patients. 

    • We are also screening/taking the temperature of all who enter the clinic, requiring hand sanitizer/hand washing upon arrival (and at conclusion of care).

    • While we have a large clinic space available, we have changed the layout of our high use equipment to maximize spacing between clients.  

    • Increased private treatment room care, especially for higher risk individuals. 

    • We are requesting those who have traveled outside the state to comply with the Governor’s request for a 14-day self-quarantine and utilize our telehealth services. 

    • We are asking all clients who have any concerning symptoms to stay at home.

    We also are utilizing Telehealth for many of our clients’ appointments to encourage social distancing.  Telehealth is a virtual visit with your physical therapist.  You can have an evaluation or follow up visit with one of our physical therapists from your own home using a computer, tablet or cell phone.  Many clients are more comfortable getting their therapy at home and we also encourage this option, especially for those who are at higher risk.  We have a screening process to evaluate who is appropriate for in-clinic or telehealth services.

    We are following the recommendations of the CDC.

    It is very important for our patients to understand that you need to get your information from reliable sources. We do NOT recommend that you trust any information posted on social media. This includes re-posts of articles. Always seek out information directly from the source.

    We have compiled a list of reliable sources of information about the coronavirus for you.
