Effective March 18, 2020- March 27, 2020.

Alton Physical Therapy, PC is abiding by the CDC recommendations on minimizing the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

We are limiting our outpatient Physical Therapy services to acute and post-surgical patients until March 27, 2020 or as otherwise directed by the Health Department.

Alton Physical Therapy has established guidelines to screen patients with comorbidities.

Our patients will be able to contact our Physical Therapists via phone if any increased symptoms or complications arise.

Patient care has always been specific to the individual, with the Physical Therapist assessing a person's needs relative to their goals. We as Physical Therapists have a responsibility to review CDC guidance, to understand who is at the highest risk and how to best reduce exposure. We will use our professional judgement in the best interest of our patients and local communities. This will include rescheduling non-urgent care if that is the best approach, or making other adjustment when the risk of exposure to COVID-19 outweighs the benefits of immediate treatment.

We continue to be diligent in our cleaning regimen. We ask that all family/visitors wait outside of the clinic unless directly involved with the patient's care. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you,
Steve Schwegel, PT
