COVID UPDATE

Dear Valued Clients,

As Manitoba goes into lockdown, Bridgwater Physiotherapy is here to help you get through this stressful time. Both Massage Therapy and Physiotherapy Services will be available. We will be open regular business hours including weekends.

Our staff will:
- be extra vigilant with sanitization, wiping high touch surfaces frequently
- screen all patient prior to treatment
- once you arrive at our clinic, you will be ushered into a treatment room immediately to prevent any gatherings in the waiting area
- wear proper PPE
- practice social distancing except when providing treatment.
- provide 1-on-1 treatment limiting the amount of people in the clinic at one time.

Our treatment rooms are spaced more than 6 feet apart, partitioned off with curtains. We also have private treatment rooms if you prefer.

We would also like to remind you that most insurance companies will renew your coverage on January 1, 2021. So be sure you take advantage of the much needed self-care. You already paid for it and more importantly, YOU DESERVE IT!

Take Care, Be Kind, Stay Safe.

Sincerely,
Bridgwater Physiotherapy Team

Benefits of Physical Activity

Regular Physical Activity may help decrease the risk of:
- Obesity
- Diabetes
- Heart Disease
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Heart Attacks
- Strokes
- Osteoporosis
- and many more

Regular exercise can aid in:
- improved cardiovascular fitness
- improved strength and muscle endurance
- reduction in chronic pain
- reduction in tension and stress
- reduction in anxiety / depression
- improved sleep
- and many more benefits!

The Canadian Physical Activity Guideline recommends 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week, in bouts of 10 minutes or more for adults.

That's just over 21 minutes a day! To think most of us spend at least that amount of time driving to work or school, watching tv, playing video games, surfing the internet, etc.

Making positive changes to your lifestyle does not have to be so drastic. A few minutes a day can make a huge difference in your overall health.

Examples of moderate intensity activities may include:
- walking
- biking
- swimming
- mowing the lawn
- walking the dog
- dancing
- exercise machines such as the treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike

At Bridgwater Physiotherapy we can recommend the appropriate exercises and activities that will be safe for you to perform. This will help you get back to your everyday activities and let you enjoy the important things in life.

Please contact us book an appointment to speak with an experienced Physiotherapist to assist you in achieving your goals.
