The advice from the Australian Physiotherapy Association is that the Federal Minister for Health, Hon Greg Hunt, has advised that all allied health businesses can continue to operate and are encouraged to do so. We are therefore open for business and are working very hard to ensure the health and safety of our staff and clients.

Current advice to all Australians

Everyone must practise good hygiene to protect against infection and prevent the virus spreading How to handWASH
International travellers or those who have had 'direct contact' with an infected person should self-isolate for 14-days to prevent the spread.

If you develop a fever, a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath within 14 days of overseas travel, seek medical attention. Stop the spread

If you have a confirmed case of COVID-19, you need to isolate yourself to prevent it spreading to other people.

What we are doing

First and foremost we have increased the frequency of our infection control procedures in the clinic and we are adapting to national recommendations daily as needed.

Here are some of the things we are doing in the clinic as our response to stopping the spread:

What next?

Watch out for our posts on social media (Instagram and Facebook) over the next few days/weeks as we share how we continue to adapt to the recommendations provided by Australian Government, Health Minister and NSW Government and the challenges currently facing us all.

The health and safety of our staff and clients is of the utmost importance to us. Continuing to provide excellence in physiotherapy services to our valued clients is at the core of what we do every day and we will continue to that while we can.

This month we are focusing on Tradies and their health. Australian tradies experience some of the highest rates of injury and time off work with 3 in 5 serious workplace injuries involving a tradie. The Australian Physiotherapy Association is encouraging all tradies, their employers and families to think about their health and take a few simple steps to prioritise their wellbeing at work

Back pain is the most common injury experienced by tradies, with other common injuries being shoulder issues related to repetitive reaching and holding actions, knee injuries related to repetitive bending and ankle sprains from working on uneven ground.

Any job involving manual and repetitive tasks may result in aches and pains.

Seeing a physiotherapist early before the issue progresses to something more serious is an important take-home message. Physiotherapists can tell you how to stop the issue from getting worse and provide treatment and exercises to help with a speedy recovery.

We hope your training has you fit and ready for the City2Surf this weekend.

We are open on Saturday morning to help you with any last-minute niggles before the big race.

Call us today so we can help you be in the best possible condition to get to the finish line in record time. Good luck!!

The St George Aged Care Expo gave Hurstville Physio Plus a great opportunity to showcase how we can support our ageing community. Helping those who are ageing to maintain their independence and confidence to remain in their own home. We believe that early intervention is essential to reduce the effects of ageing and is key to better outcomes for our clients.

Our dedicated team of physiotherapists provide professional physiotherapy, exercise therapy and rehabilitation in the comfort and safety of the client’s home or aged care facility, or in our clinic. They complete a comprehensive initial assessment and develop a rehabilitation plan to help each client achieve their goals.
