As an essential medical service Milltown Physiotherapy is open and operating with a policy of social distancing and sanitizing. It is our priority that our patients, reception staff and physiotherapists are protected to the utmost of our ability.
From the outset
Patients will be advised if they have any respiratory symptoms at all that they should NOT attend. In addition patients in ‘at risk’ groups should not attend.
On the day of an appointment
Patients will receive a text reminder of their appointment and the option to wait in the car where they will be phoned when their therapist is ready to see them.
In the clinic
Seating in the waiting room and separately in the exercise room is greater than 2 metres apart.
There are sanitizing hand gels and tissues readily available throughout the clinic.
The clinic is sanitised frequently throughout the day including all commonly touched surfaces.
Treatment rooms and door areas are cleaned thoroughly by the therapists between patients.
Payment would ideally be made by card rather than cash where care is taken around use of pin pad for transactions.
We are delighted to see our new Men’s Health service getting busier and busier!

The British Journal of Sports Medicine published a systematic review* last year on whether schoolbag use is a risk factor for back pain in children and adolescents. This is often cited as a cause of back pain in children but the findings of the research may come as a surprise.
They found that there is no convincing evidence that aspects of schoolbag use increase the risk of back pain in children and adolescents.
