We are back! As of tomorrow morning at 6:30 AM we were able to welcome back our first patients, and we are excited to see each and every one of you. This has been quite a journey, and while it is far from over, we wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your support over the past few weeks, and for your continued support in the weeks and months to come.
Now that we are back to treating patients full-time we will likely have to slow down on the newsletter and social media posts, but don't worry, we won't go away entirely! We will still be using social media and this Healthy at Home newsletter and blog to provide some continued information as we move forward; as always our goal is to keep you healthy enough that you don't need to come and see us!
We will see many of you in the coming weeks and months, but don't be afraid to reach out via email if you need to talk to one of us. We will be continuing to offer Telehealth sessions for those who can't come to the clinic, or for those who aren't comfortable coming in. Sometimes we can answer your questions in an email or through a Telehealth session if that will help us maintain social distancing and keep exposure to a minimum.
As always, our clients come first, and we look forward to serving you in a way that will keep all of us healthy. If you have questions or concerns please reach out to your therapist, or Blaine or D'Arcy, and one of us can provide an answer.
Thank you again for your support; together we will remain Mackie Strong.
The second stretch is for the gastroc and soleus muscles, which are a common cause of tight and painful calves.
The final stretch is a side stretch, which most of our therapists refer to as the "ballerina stretch". This stretch focuses on the hip, ribs, and shoulder.
Welcome Back Wednesday:
This week we've changed What's Up Wednesday to Welcome Back Wednesday! We sent out an email (which you should have already gotten) with a video explaining the procedures and protocols that you will need to know before your first visit back. Remember to check out the Reopening Procedures page for more details!
Remember, you can book online, by phone, or via email starting any time! Also, remember that the COVID-19 self-assessment tool must be used before every appointment, and must be done within a few hours of your appointment.
This week we are thankful for our partnerships with other businesses in our community! In a time when caring for others in our community is of the utmost importance, we are proud to partner with two businesses in particular who are caring for our community.
We partnered with Pine View Farms All Natural Meats to deliver gift baskets of their products to six of our clients. A huge thank you to Pine View Farms for their very generous donation!
Popeyes Supplements has offered 10% off to the Mackie Physio community - just let them know when you order that you are part of the Mackie Physio community. We are proud partners with Popeyes and are grateful for their support of our community.
Spring has arrived, and luckily we are also entering phase one of our provincial reopening! To celebrate this exciting time we at Mackie would love to see you embrace the season and get outside for some exercise! Plenty of fun and fitness can be achieved with just some open space (keep your social distance) while the fresh air and sunshine is extremely restorative after our very sheltered winter. We challenge you to go outside, work on your fitness, and post your pictures or stories in on our social media pages! We hope you had an awesome weekend!
