Omicron Covid variant Update Wilmslow
How I can help you during the Covid-19 outbreak.
In light of the emerging Omicron Covid variant, I will continue to wear full PPE and adhere to all safeguarding guidelines within the clinic as recommended by PHE and my governing body for clinical settings.
Osteopathy is a very hands-on treatment. I have taken all the necessary advice and recommended guidelines to put a Safeguard Policy in place for the Omicron covid variant to continue to provide a service for you
I wear full PPE of mask, apron, gloves and visor to help prevent cross infection. With a clinical mask, 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 continue to provide treatment during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Prior to an appointment, 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 Health/Covid-19 Screening Form This would mean the contact time I have with you is for examination and treatment. I will 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).
Using a pulse oximeter, I can measure your oxygen saturation levels. It is a small clamp-like device is placed on a finger. It measures the amount of blood oxygen.
Typically, more than 89 percent of your blood should be carrying oxygen. This is the oxygen saturation level needed to keep your cells healthy.
An oxygen saturation level of 95 percent is considered normal for most healthy individuals. A level of 92 percent indicates potential hypoxemia, or deficiency in oxygen reaching tissues in the body.
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. I’m more than happy to talk to you over the phone to offer advice for musculoskeletal pain. 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.
