Sun City Physiotherapy is committed to ensuring the health and well-being of our clients, staff, therapists, and community.
As a direct response to recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, College Of PTBC, and the Physiotherapy Association of BC, we will be OPEN for urgent care appointments at our Downtown Kelowna clinic on St. Paul Street. These in-person appointments will be reserved for only those clients in significant need of physiotherapy treatment, and who meet certain strict parameters. If you feel you are in this category, please call 250-861-8056 and one of our client care team members will assist you.
We are also offering Telehealth. Through Telehealth, we can provide assessments, education, exercises, recommendations and support through secure online video or telephone. Many healthcare plans, as well as ICBC and Worksafe BC will cover this alternative to in-person treatment.
We strongly believe in continuity of care and providing ways to help you manage through this interruption in order to maintain your physiotherapy, kinesiology, rehabilitation, and dietitian services.
Call us. We will continue to answer the phones and respond to your emails. We will do our best to keep you connected with your therapist should you have any questions or concerns.
Visit suncityphysiotherapy.com or stay connected via our social media posts for updates regarding access to online treatment, and other developing information.
In the meantime let’s all do our part by practising good hand and respiratory
hygiene, maintaining social distancing, and by staying informed.
Be safe. Be healthy. Be kind.
