Thank YOU!

In a blink we are nearly into June 2020. Halfway through the year. Nearly half of that time spent in a pandemic. Feels weird to some days be “ok” while others feeling like you can barely hold it together long enough to get through that next task.

It has felt like from the moment we announced the clinic closure to in-person care March 18 we have been consistently adjusting, moving, re-planning. Through it all we have been forever grateful to the community and our clients for your understanding and grace you have given us during this time. I don’t think we can ever over-state how deeply we appreciate your support during these many transitions!

In-Person Care

Although things are still seeming to be ever changing, we have settled on some specifics for those that are appropriate for our in-person appointments we are providing for Physiotherapy & Massage services at this time.

  1. Ensure you have completed your online COVID screening questionnaire and re-book if you are feeling at all unwell
  2. When you arrive please stay in your vehicle! Our team will call you when they have your personal waiting room ready
  3. We are required to have everyone who enters the building to wear a mask (please bring one with you to your appointment)
  4. There will be hand sanitizer available for you to use once you enter the building
  5. The bathrooms at this time are closed to public use
  6. Contact-less payment is preferred whenever possible

*Please note that depending on the type of appointment you are scheduled for, your therapist may have differing levels of PPE on

 

PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)

At the clinic the therapists and staff have access to approved PPE for all levels of available services. This means various levels of equipment will be used for different treatment types, in addition to personal protective measures that each therapist feels necessary to take for their own/family safety.

You will always see your therapists and staff in a mask if they are unable to remain physically distanced (this includes Laura until our fancy new sneeze guard comes!) – which of course will be the case for any in-person/hands on appointments. You may also see: protective eye wear, a gown/specific lab jacket (we have special ordered some), and/or gloves.

It must be noted that at this time we are not completing any assessment or treatment intraorally. This means that until further notice appointments for TMJ will not be able to evaluate the muscles within the mouth. We can however, still provide assessment and treatment of any additional factors that would be related to the neck and external to the mouth!

 

Why are we so diligent?

We are so fortunate to have such understanding clientele at the clinic, and haven’t had any issues with our new protocols and procedures. It is important that we ensure that our clients understand why it is important that we follow the guidelines, are honest in our COVID screening questionnaires for a couple main reasons.

1) There are hefty fines for not following the proper protocols

Businesses that do not comply with the government or association guidelines are at risk of fines up to $250,000. We have been so grateful to persevere through this pandemic to date. Fines during this time not only for our business, but any business, could prove catastrophic for any business.

2) We need to protect those that are at risk that are coming in to provide care

There are some individuals at the clinic that are at-risk themselves or have family members that are at greater risk for COVID.

Although I am a generally private person, I have felt that now is the time to let our clients and community know that I have been diagnosed and started treatment for cancer. COVID has thrown a real wrench in the entire process and brings a new element to have to navigate during an already challenging time. As many people know, my dad has leukemia and has for years so I am very familiar with the increased protective measures required for a compromised immune system during a typical flu season. I am confident in our team’s ability to navigate these uncertain times and continue to provide the high level of care that we have become accustomed to.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff, the clients, and the community. We appreciate that we are all working together through these processes.

Thank you for choosing us to help you, help yourself!

At Warman Physio we have been working hard behind the scenes to get a secondary location going for all the clients that are unable to get out to Warman. We are pleased to announce that as of June 3, 2019 we will be located in Saskatoon!

To top it off, we are not only opening a second location, but we also have two NEW staff members to introduce to you!

Maja Stroh PT

First, our physiotherapist Maja Stroh!

  • Prolapse
  • Incontinence
  • Back pain
  • Sports Rehabilitation
  • General orthopedics

Maja is passionate about pelvic health and is always on the search to ensure that all angles are considered for every client. Her attention to detail and comprehensive exams ensure that you are obtaining the whole picture when you come in for any injury or issue.

 

We are also pleased to announce our RMT Signe Bone to the team in Saskatoon!

Signe has been working as a massage therapist for a number of years, and has always had a desire and drive to understand the human body from a very young age. She has been working in Saskatoon as an RMT as well as continuing her education in Prenatal Massage through Axiom Collage, and has begun her Visceral Manipulation through Barral Institute and Craniosacral Therapy through Upledger Institute. The areas of practice that Signe is most drawn to includes:

  • Prenatal & postpartum massage
  • General Injuries (whiplash, TOS, piriformis syndrome, etc)
  • Abdominal Health thorugh Visceral Manipulation
  • Critical Alignment Therapy
  • Cranial Sacral Therapy: CS1

Her love for learning and solving problems helps her provide the best care and treatment she can through working with her clients to better understand them as a person, not just as a body.

The schedule for physiotherapy assessment and treatment can be found HERE and to get on the list for booking for massage can be found HERE.

 

Spread the word and make sure you share this fantastic news with your friends! As per our vision – the Saskatoon location will be infant and child friendly, providing compassionate, comprehensive, and personable care to each and every client.

 

Location of the Saskatoon clinic is: 2543 Dudley St, Saskatoon

We are so thrilled to be offering a second annual FUN RUN (or walk!) and BBQ this year on June 15th! We again will be providing a variety of distance options (2km, 5km, 10km) as well as family and group/corporate options for participating!

Last year we were so fortunate to have 60 (HOLY SMOKES!) runners participate, and sold over 100 burgers the day of the event. We are hoping that this year, we will be able to get out 80 runners, and sell 125 burgers – with 100% of all proceeds going directly to Light the Night!

We choose to raise money annually for Light the Night as Haylie’s dad, Hank, has been battling with CLL – a ‘slow’ moving form of leukemia for over a decade. He has been through countless rounds of chemo, a stem cell transplant, and relapse – if you want to read some more about Hank’s journey check out our previous blog.

The thing that makes fundraising for the LLSC Light the Night THE BEST is the advances that we are able to see in the short time (although it feels like a very long time!) Hank has been going through treatments. Because of this fundraising that supports research efforts as well as supporting those that have been diagnosed with blood cancers, the quality of treatment has been vastly different! Hank would not have survived more than a year in 2012 if he had not received a stem cell transplant, and in 2016 when his cancer returned, the drug therapies were so much better, he wouldn’t have needed a stem cell transplant to begin with if it had been available then!

We would be so grateful if you would join us in our efforts, and come and enjoy a day of movement (walk or run!) and/or some food to support our cause!

2km individual sign-up

2km family sign-up

5km individual sign-up

10km individual sign-up

Contact us for group/corporate rates, and to find out how to get your burger and drink included in the run!

Happy 4 year birthday to us!

I am so grateful and also humbled to be able to celebrate our fourth year in business today.

I’ve been taking some time to reflect on the past 4 years in business here in Warman serving the community and surrounding areas (from Lloydminster to Davidson!) and I am so grateful that we have been so fortunate in business. I have enjoyed supporting the community, participating in events, being asked to provide space for groups to meet, and most of all, working with clients to help them help themselves solve their injury, aches & pains.

Looking at where we started November 3, 2014, when it was just Lauren (RMT) and myself at the clinic, to the amazing team of therapists we have, I can’t help but think about the impact we are able to make in people’s lives, and being able to reach more people, more quickly.

Developing a team that truly cares about you – the past, present, or future clients – ensuring that we without a doubt are providing outstanding care for women, children, men, and most importantly families has been my vision for the clinic. We work tirelessly on our end to get people in for appointments, and therapists are often adjusting their schedules just to make things work. We aim to treat everyone as family, because if you are going to be working 40(+?) hours a week, isn’t it wonderful to have a workplace that feels like home?

At Warman Physio we are truly honored to have THE BEST clients – and I know I am biased but everyone we see at the clinic is truly amazing, wonderful individuals. At the end of the day, we as therapists are so honored to be a part of your journey to health & wellness, to not just survive, but thrive.

So a huge thank you to the community in which we reside, without the support of the community, we wouldn’t be able to do what we are doing. I am so grateful for all of you.

Let’s take some time to go through some of our memories throughout the years as well as some of our favorite photos!
