How I can help you during this outbreak.
I have been working towards preparing the clinic, under the Government guidelines for Covid-19 (coronavirus) and those of my governing body, for the safe return to practice. Osteopathy is a very hands-on treatment involving skills of observation and palpation. I have taken all the necessary advice and recommended guidelines to put a Safeguard Policy in place to continue to provide a service for you.
I can offer you a MASK to wear during your treatment. The BLUE side goes on the outside as it is waterproof — keeping droplets from outside from penetrating into your mask. The WHITE side is absorbent and is worn on the inside — so if you cough, your droplets are trapped in your mask.
How I can help you
My professional body, the GOsC, permits me to use my judgement to provide treatment during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. These are for those who are struggling with pain management or have symptoms that may need emergency intervention. In such circumstances I can assess and treat you.
I have PPE to reduce risk of cross infection. We would need to have a consultation over the phone first. This is to get all the information I need beforehand to understand your medical and symptom history and to complete a COVID-19 RISK ASSESSMENT FORM. This would mean the contact time I have with you is for examination and treatment. I will also take your temperature before the treatment to check it is within the normal guidelines for adults (97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C).
How I can help if you’re self-shielding
I’m still available to help at a distance for those who still wish to self isolate or are self-shielding. This is a very difficult time for all of us and a lot of people may be trying to self manage conditions.
If you have any musculoskeletal concerns that you’d like some help with, I’m more than happy to talk to you over the phone. I can offer advice for musculoskeletal pain and discuss with you what you may be able do to help it. This may be with remedial exercises or self help back care advice. I’d be very happy for you to get in touch to see how I may help.
