IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT as of March 30, 2020 regarding the COVID-19 situation!!
PLEASE THOROUGHLY READ THROUGH THIS DOCUMENT BEFORE COMING INTO THE CLINIC FOR A TREATMENT. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO SIGN BELOW TO VERIFY THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD ALL OF THE PRECAUTIONS WE HAVE PUT INTO PLACE.
As regulated health care professionals in the province of Ontario, namely chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists, we constitute an important segment included health professionals referred to in Section 58 of the government list of essential services. Chiropractors play an important and vital role in maintaining the health of Ontarians, including those working on the front lines.
Following on advice from the specific regulatory bodies of our professions, and in line with the directive from the Province, our Clinic will continue to operate on an “emergency care” basis. This constitutes patients that either:
1. Experience a sudden change in functional abilities due to pain or injury, ie. An acute fall or trauma.
2. Require treatment aimed at alleviating significant pain, and pain that interferes with the ability to carry out daily functioning.
We will only allow patients into the Clinic at their specified appointment time and only one at a time, such that social distancing can be maintained and so that the surfaces can be sterilized between patient visits. We do not have staff at the front desk, so please respect all of the measures that have been put into place for your safety.
Finally, please confirm that you answer NO to each of the following questions by initialing each point before attending your appointment:
1. Do you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or flu-like symptoms? Initial _______
2. Have you travelled outside of Canada or been in contact with anyone who has travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days? Initial ________
3. Have you been in close contact with a person who has an acute respiratiory illness or a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19? Initial ________
4. Have you been in any groups of 5 or more over the past 14 days? Initial ________
If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then we cannot allow you inside the Clinic. You may reschedule your appointment for a later date.
When attending your appointment, you will be asked to sign to verify that you understand the restrictions above and confirm that you have taken necessary precautions and understand any risks of exposure.
Thank you so much for all your cooperation through this crisis. We are in this together!!
NEW TO THE CLINIC (once COVID-19 restrictions have lifted):
PERSONAL TRAINING with Cameron. In addition to one on one personal training sessions, group exercise “bootcamp” is available for all fitness levels on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Come and join us for lots of fun and fitness !!
Our Clinic continues to provide comprehensive Concussion management services. Momentum Healing Arts is a certified Complete Concussion Management Centre with baseline testing for all sport disciplines and post injury concussion management (eg. sports, trauma, car accidents). Read below for more complete information. Be sure to let your friends and family know.
Studies have consistently shown that well after an athlete has recovered from the initial symptoms of concussion, there may still be deficiencies in other systems. During this period of incomplete recovery the brain is extremely vulnerable to stress and secondary injury. Allowing a player to return too early places them at risk for serious and potentially permanent or fatal brain injury!
Comprehensive baseline testing includes all areas of potential deficits seen in concussion injuries including neurocognitive function (visual, spatial, auditory memory, concentration, etc.), reaction time, balance, visual tracking speed, and motor strength testing. In the event of an injury, these specific tests provide our specially trained doctors with specific information about each athlete so that a more informed and safer decision can be made as to when they return to play!
Best of all, concussion baseline testing is covered through secondary health benefits!
Sign up today to have your baseline test completed as an individual, or with your sports team to receive a group discount!
