    Stage 4 – Attending Appointments

    As we pass the half way mark of stage 4 restrictions, we know that some people are still expressing concerns with regards to attending appointments. Our goal at Malvern East Physiotherapy is to continue to provide best practice care while also following Government advice to minimise movement within our community. This means providing our current and new patients with increased access to our Telehealth consultations.

    While the clinic remains essential in providing face-to-face assessments and clinical care, we are offering all existing and new patients Telehealth consultations as part of our Covid Safe Plan. This means that all patients who can be provided with appropriate care via online tools will be doing so. This will be determined by Physiotherapy staff members during consultation time.

    We are considering each individual’s presentation and clinical care requirements on a case by case circumstance. We are not following a ‘one model fits all’ to determine ongoing care for our patients. During all initial and follow up assessments, our Physiotherapy staff will be discussing our Telehealth consultations options. It may be that some presentations are able to be managed remotely from day one. Others may require hands on intervention in the early stages, and then can progress to Telehealth once their painful symptoms are under control.

    This will not always be appropriate for acute pain presentations and the management of those experiencing functional decline. Where we continue to require clinic attendance for best practice care, we have put in additional measures on site to minimize numbers and mitigate risk. We have a number of screening questions that our reception team will be asking, and are reducing bookings in our clinical exercise areas to ensure appropriate social distancing.

    We are all working hard to stay up to date with the ever-changing situation while continuing to provide quality care to our patients. If you or your family have any concerns regarding attending the clinic, please reach out to one of our staff members will would be happy to discuss this further.

    In the meantime, we hope you are all staying active and injury free!

    Last week our team celebrated another great year. 

Whilst Melbourne’s weather had its own plans, we were still determined to keep with the theme of ‘Italian Summer’. We let our hair down to master the art of mixology 🍸🍹followed by an Italian feast. Friday morning Run Club with the team. Practicing what we preach!

Staying stronger, healthier and happier. This time last week, our team was nervously completing their final preparations for @melbmara . 

Congratulations to our physiotherapists and ME community who ran on the day.

Dilen and Michael completed their first marathons. Abbey and Lizzie smashed out their first half. Last Sunday, our team headed down to see our own Matt Warren win a premiership in the VAFA Premier Men’s Competition. Last week our team dedicated a full day to professional development and team building. At ME Physio we pride ourselves on collaboration to put you at the centre of everything we do. 

Our team covered the latest treatments for back pain, financial well-being and finished off the day with salsa dancing. 

Many thanks to our guests including James Schomburgk from @the2ndvisitphysio , Financial Planners Tony Vikram & Cameron Bishop and the @salsafoundation At ME Physio, our focus is on helping you get stronger so that you can keep doing the things you love.

For Tony and Joan, healthier and stronger is being able to navigate the iconic Coast to Coast Walk in the UK! We recently had the pleasure of hosting Elise Bujor from Women’s & Men’s Health Physiotherapy to discuss women’s health issues across the lifespan. 

Our team pride themselves on staying up to date to ensure you’re able to stay healthier, happier and stronger. Huge milestones over the past few weeks with both Tom and Jude from @delasallefc doing their first bit of running in their rehab. 

Tom is on the return from an ankle dislocation whilst Jude is putting in the hard work following a knee reconstruction. Last week our team enjoyed some friendly rivalry at the footy. 

With finals around the corner, some of our team can now safely make holidays plans for September. We recently had the pleasure of hosting the podiatry team from @sespodiatry. 

Our physiotherapists Michael and Abbey presented on rehabilitation following Achilles surgical repair and ankle surgery. Last weekend some of our team got together to complete the 10 km run @runmelbourne. There was no finish line picture as some were keen to run another 15 km!

Whilst running wasn’t for some - brunch was well received by everyone. Shoulder impingement can be incredibly frustrating and painful. 

Tony has been working closely with our physiotherapists Vernon and Dilen to get on top of his shoulder pain. His treatment plan has included hands-on physiotherapy and individualised exercises in our hydrotherapy and strength programs.

    You Deserve to Feel Good.
