EASTERN SPORT & SPINAL CARE
COVID-19 UPDATE 5th August
To our valued and loyal clients:
To our valued clients
Over the last few months we have been very fortunate to have no cases of community transmission in South Australia and so life had returned to a relative state of normal.
I am writing to reassure you that we are currently open and seeing clients both individually, and also running our classes, with strict hygiene practices.
We continue to monitor the SA Covid status very closely and due to recent new cases, we are choosing to escalate our protective strategies further, to keep both you and our staff safe.
All new clients will be screened as per Covid-19 Protocols, regarding interstate travels, any testing or isolation recommendations. If our staff feel that there is any risk the new client will be asked to wait two weeks and get tested before attending the practice. As an extra precautionary measure our physiotherapists will wear masks if we are in close face to face contact.
For those of you who are reluctant to attend your usual exercise sessions please do not allow yourself to become deconditioned and lose muscle strength, fitness and balance as that makes you more vulnerable to falls and other problems.
We are here to help you stay strong and resilient for the duration of this virus.
We have recently started a specific Osteofit class at the practice for the 50-60 year old peri -menopausal clients that may be osteopenic but keen to stimulate bone loading and osteogenesis. This class runs twice a week and is aimed to get clients loading their bones effectively to stimulate osteogenesis/bone formation. If you have daughters or family members in this age group, please spread the word that we have a program that is drug free and can help them.
We are still running some online exercise classes focusing on maintaining good spinal control/specific balance work and functional upper and lower limb strength (see attached).
If you are interested in any of these programs or if you know of anyone who is becoming deconditioned and more sedentary please let them know we are here to help them.
Refer a friend and receive $10 off your next visit/class.
We will keep you updated on any changes to the services we can offer.
In the meantime, stay well and active!
