Welcome to Balance Physiotherapy
Responding to COVID-19
We are thrilled to have reopened Thursday May 21st and have safely reintroduced in clinic Physiotherapy visits. Online booking is also still available.
As well as in clinic visits, we are continuing to offer Virtual Physiotherapy TeleHealth Sessions, a video-based individualized assessment and treatment from us in the privacy of your own home.
The new normal will look a little different and our primary goal is to keep everyone safe while we deliver the same high-quality care you are used to. Following the guidelines from the College of Physiotherapy, the Public Health Office and WorkSafeBC:
Here’s what we are doing to keep everyone safe:
Pre-screening – Everyone will be asked several questions (the COVID-19 wellness checklist) prior to their appointment to ensure you are healthy. Any patients who do not feel well or answer yes to any questions will be asked to reschedule their appointment for a later date. If you are not feeling well for any reason or are experiencing any of the following, we ask that you do not come into the clinic:
- fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, trouble breathing.
Additionally, patients will be asked to reschedule if:
- In the past 14 days they have been in contact with someone who has a presumed or confirmed case of COVID-19 or any acute respiratory illness.
- They have traveled outside BC (including the US) in the last 2 weeks.
We will also cancel our day if we have any symptoms that would put you at risk.
Social distancing and good hygiene practice will be crucial to help keep us all safe.
Hand sanitization stations will be available in several places within the clinic area.
If you cough or sneeze, please use your sleeve to cover your mouth and nose or use a tissue and then immediately discard it into a garbage can.
Please avoid touching your face and/or mask.
We suggest that you minimize your contact with high-touch surfaces such as light switches, door handles and counter tops whenever possible.
All patients will be asked to bring and wear a face mask during their visit. Cloth masks are acceptable. Masks will be worn by all therapists and staff during direct care.
There is a protective plexiglass shield at the front desk and enhanced cleaning protocols for the clinic are in place.
We ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes prior to your appointment time. If you need someone to accompany you to your appointment, please be aware that there are no seats in the waiting area. To maintain social distancing, all chairs have been removed. Please have your companion meet you outside the clinic at the end of your appointment.
Balance Physio may look a little different from before but, be assured, your treatment will remain the same high-quality care that you are used to and in which, we at Balance Physiotherapy take a great deal of pride. Let’s stay safe, be kind and remember that physical distancing, hand washing and not touching our face are our best protection.
Should you be unable to attend the clinic in person for any reason, don’t worry, we can still “see” you as we will continue to offer our virtual physiotherapy TeleHealth sessions, a video-based individualized assessment and treatment in the privacy of your own home.
We are ready to help keep you moving so you can maintain your best balanced life.

Movement is a vital component of life.
