COVID-19 - Update

Updated Dec. 11th 2020,

We continue to follow the guidance of the PA. Dept. of Health and wellness/preventative care is now available. If you have had a wellness appointment or check-up canceled since March 13th, we are happy to reschedule at this time. Appointments are still being spaced out, but we have returned to our normal Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday schedule. As availability is limited, we are currently unable to accept walk-ins, so please call or e-mail to schedule your appointment. Our commitment to operating our office as safely as possible is unchanged as we transition to a slow return to normal. For patients being seen during this period, the following steps are being taken:


  • Patient appointments are being  limited to control the number of personnel in the office at any one time.

  • Cleanliness has always been a core value of our office and we know that it is no more important than right now. As such, sanitization protocols have been re-examined and increased

  • Patients experiencing symptoms such as cough, fever or shortness of breath will not be seen for therapy. Call the office to reschedule your appointment if you experience any of the above symptoms and contact your primary care provider.

  • For our patients experiencing new or worsening musculoskeletal complains during this time, especially those who are in the COVID-19 risk groups, and do not wish to come into the office: We will be available to offer guidance, advice and home care. Please call the office and leave a message or email us. We will get back to you as soon as possible.


With your help, understanding and support, we will get through this challenging period of uncertainty as we always have. As a community.
