UPDATE ON ELECTIVE AND NON-URGENT PROCEDURES
On April 29th, Governor Inslee released additional guidance for interpreting Proclamation 20-24 which limits non-urgent medical procedures. We realize that many people, including some of our patients, have had to postpone procedures. With restrictions being clarified, and some procedures for which a delay could result in increased harm to the patient now being scheduled, there are actions patients can take as they begin to consider rehabilitation needs.
PRE- & POST-OPERATIVE SERVICES
If you have had to postpone a procedure, we want to assure you our clinicians are here to help with your pre- and post-operative needs. Studies show that just one or two pre-operative visits with a physical therapist often leads to a quicker recovery after surgery. Our PTs specialize in maintaining movement and strength and managing pain before and after surgery.
Do you or someone you know have a scheduled procedure soon?
Actions you can take now:
- Call our clinic to discuss options and schedule your visits to ensure you get the days and times that work best with you.
- Use our online form to request your pre- and post-op appointments by clicking the link below.
On May 4th, Governor Inslee signed a new COVID-19 order outlining a phased approach to re-opening the state’s economy. As the Safe Start Washington plan gradually lifts the stay-at-home order in the future, we want to ensure our patients and community members feel safe as they access our services during this transition. We will continue offering telehealth appointments for anyone who prefers to remain at home for safety. Most insurance companies have granted the extension of telehealth services as a covered benefit for their members.

EXERCISE EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES
With the continued closure of gyms and fitness clubs, many people are converting spaces in their homes to fitness areas and may benefit from adding equipment or supplies. While retail stores in town remain closed and Amazon and other online retailers have a limited supply and are delaying shipping on items that are deemed non-essential, our clinic may carry products that could assist you in your home fitness routine.
Some of the items we often carry include:
- Exercise Balls
- Resistance Bands
- Foam Rollers
If our clinic doesn’t have what you are looking for in stock, there is a good chance that our vendor does and can deliver it to us within 3-5 business days.
Please call the clinic if you are looking for exercise equipment or supplies to support your home fitness program.
