To help prevent the virus from spreading to people in close proximity, the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. At this time, patients are required to wear face coverings in all Smith Physical Therapy + Running Academy clinics.
We have enhanced safety procedures in our facilities to promote health and minimize the spread of the virus. Our protocols are based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Health Departments. We continuously monitor updates to CDC recommendations and adjust protocols and processes accordingly. We want to take the opportunity to share more details about the comprehensive measures our clinics have implemented while we remain open, including the implementation of a secure telehealth option for individuals who want to complete their treatment remotely.
Upon arrival, every patient will be temperature checked using a no-touch infrared thermometer. In addition, every patient will be asked screening questions:
If the answer is yes to any of the questions, our staff will work with you to reschedule your appointment. If you have any doubts about whether you should attend a scheduled appointment, please call the clinic before arriving for your visit.
Our employees are diligent about cleaning all equipment and spaces between every patient with CDC-approved cleaning agents. Additionally, we are practicing good hand hygiene and have hand sanitizer located throughout our clinic for frequent, convenient use. All Smith Physical Therapy + Running Academy staff will wear a cloth face covering when interacting with patients.
We have expanded our offerings to include Telehealth appointments, which connects our physical therapists to current and new patients via Apple Facetime or Zoom. Patients can call our clinics to request a telehealth appointment for physical therapy, women’s health and running academy appointments. Our therapists are ready to assist expediting care to those that need it. Please note there are some telehealth restrictions with treating the Medicare population, and these will be discussed with patients at time of call.
