Healthfocus Physiotherapy Albury, Lavington & Wodonga.

At Healthfocus we strive to deliver excellent healthcare services in our community.

We want to help you feel great!

Physiotherapy today offers an extremely broad range of healthcare services. As a large practice across three locations we have many specialty services, with the latest treatment and assessment aides.

At Healthfocus we believe keeping you healthy is as important as assisting when you are injured or unwell, prevention is always better than cure. However if you are injured or recuperating we understand the importance of getting you back to work, sport or recreation activities as soon as possible.

COVID-19 and Telehealth Appointments

Dear Valued Client,

 

COVID-19 has presented us with an unprecedented challenge. Australians are being asked to take measures that we’ve never had to before – things like cancelling travel, not going to concerts and general social distancing.

You may be wondering how this affects your physiotherapy treatment. We at Healthfocus Physiotherapy continue to offer quality care for our patients. There are many things we are doing as professionals to minimise risk of exposure through rigorous hygiene practices and patient screening to keep you and our staff safe. So, you are welcome to come in for your treatment, subject to our screening processes.

However, if you are in self-isolation or would prefer to minimise contact in any way, you may like to consult with us via Telehealth. Telehealth uses digital technology that’s readily available on your computer or phone to receive treatment from our physio. It is safe and effective, and our physios are trained to deliver telehealth consultations.

As this is a new service, we are offering telehealth sessions at a discounted fee, therefore standard consultations via telehealth range from $53.63 to $78.00. If you would like to talk to us about continuing your treatment through Telehealth, please call us on 02 6041 5744.

 

Stay safe and well.

COVID-19 Our Practice Update

Dear Healthfocus Physiotherapy community,   We understand and appreciate that there is growing concern within the community regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  We want to let you know that we are remaining updated on this continually evolving situation through the Department of Health and Human services, our Australian Physiotherapy Association and the World Health Organisation.  It is our collective responsibility to ensure we are acting with a sense of urgency and responsibility to both ourselves and those around us in an effort to minimise the transmission and impact of the virus.   Please be aware of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms include fever, coughing, a sore throat, fatigue and shortness of breath.   All people who have returned from overseas are now being asked to self-isolate for a period of 14 days, and the same advice applies if you have had contact with a confirmed case.   If you are concerned you may have Coronavirus please DO NOT attend our clinic, and please call either your own GP, Albury Wodonga Health on 60584444 or the Coronavirus Health Information line 24 hours a day on 1800 020 080 to determine if you need to be tested. Please DO NOT present directly to the Emergency Department or your GP clinic without calling ahead.   We at Healthfocus Physiotherapy have also maintained and increased our levels of infection control.  
  • This includes provision of hand sanitiser in all patient areas, and we ask that you please utilise this when you enter and leave, and aim to avoid touching your face.
  • If you utilise the bathroom, please wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, and dry thoroughly.
  • We will greet you with a smile, however refrain from handshakes.
  • We will sit a little further away for the initial part of our consultations to maintain “social distancing” as practicable.
  • We will regularly disinfect common areas, including door knobs, our eftpos machine, and ipads and the front desk.
  • We will disinfect all exercise equipment after each use.
  Remember if you remain well we would love to see you!  If you are however unwell, we respectfully ask that you please stay at home until you are recovered.   We are also exploring the option of providing Telehealth consultations, when appropriate, to assist those that may not be able to come into our clinics. If you are interested in exploring this option please call us to discuss.   We hope that these measures may assist to continue to help you “move through life” during this time and beyond.   For further information please visit www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus Kind regards,   The Healthfocus Physiotherapy Team
