Reopening measures

The MRU Injury & Prevention Clinic is currently open for regular physiotherapy and chiropractic appointments. 

While the province has launched Phase 2 of the Alberta COVID-19 Relaunch Strategy, because we are part of a university, there are more government restrictions and guidelines that we need to follow. Like you, we are eager to resume massage therapy, acupuncture, and athletic therapy appointments. We are committed to safely reopening our services to full capacity and will provide an update as soon as additional services are available for booking.

The clinic is following the Pandemic Practice Directive of the Alberta College & Association of Chiropractors to ensure that all protective measures are in place to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19. 

Going forward all patients requesting an in-person appointment will be asked to self-screen using the questions below, which are provided in your appointment email, and again when arriving for your appointment.  Please refer to the screening questions below as well as the new clinic measures we’ve implemented to ensure your safety.

 

For in-person appointments, patients will be required to complete the following steps:

  • Enter through the West Gate by pressing the intercom button and letting Security know that you have an appointment at MRU Injury & Prevention Clinic
  • Wear a mask
  • Sanitize your hands

The following measures have been put in place to ensure your safety:

Physical Barriers: 

  • A plexiglass barrier at reception 
  • Reduced # of appointments in the clinic
  • Revised practitioner schedule that reduces overlap of patients in the clinic.
  • Increased distance between treatment beds
  • Disposable pillow cases on treatment beds
  • The option for a Tele-Health rather than in-person visit with your practitioner

Effective use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

  • Our practitioners will be wearing surgical/procedural masks and gloves when treating patients
  • Patients will be required to re-sanitize their hands before heading back to their appointment and will be required to wear their masks throughout the appointment unless it causes a hazard during treatment

Enhanced Cleaning and Disinfection Practices 

  • Routine cleaning and disinfecting of common areas and treatment beds
  • Use of Health Canada approved cleaning and disinfecting agents

Payment Processing Procedure

  • We will not be taking cash as a payment method during this period
  • We recommend the use of the TAP option for credit card or Interac payments
