MTI Physical Therapy’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response

The safety, health and well-being of our patients is always our highest priority. Our staff and Physical Therapists have been working hard to continue to maintain a safe environment for our patients, while continuing to provide the highest level of care. Governor Inslee has deemed Physical Therapy an essential business and one that’s critical to protecting the health and well-being of all Washingtonians. As such, our clinics with remain OPEN, but will be complying with all CDC and Department of Health guidelines and directives.

With that in mind, we have always practiced exceptional hygienic protocols to keep our clinics clean and safe for our patients using products that are industry standards for controlling viruses, bacteria and other germs. These protocols include:

  • Regularly wiping down surfaces, including, but not limited to, treatment tables, chairs, credenzas, doorknobs and handles
  • Laundering linens after each use
  • Wiping down equipment in the gym including weights and pulleys
  • Practicing exceptional personal hygiene practices including frequent hand washing between each patient and using hand sanitizer when needed during a patient visit
  • As always, if your therapist starts to exhibit any symptoms of illness, they will remain at home and we will reach out to you to reschedule your appointment

We will continue practicing these protocols and have added a few additional safeguards in each clinic to meet the new requirements and regulations for social distancing and sanitation:

  • We are asking that each patient wash or sanitize hands upon entering clinics
  • We have gloves available for patients to wear while in the clinic if they so choose
  • We are utilizing an electronic sign-in procedure, so patients won’t need to use pens or paper
  • We will practice social distancing in all of our common spaces, including the waiting room and gym. Whenever possible, we will have you wait for your appointment in a treatment room
  • Our therapists will wear masks when providing manual therapy to patients in close proximities

How can you do your part? If you or anyone in your household are exhibiting symptoms of illness, please contact your MTI clinic to reschedule your appointment. These symptoms include:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Headache
  • Sore Throat
  • Loss of smell or taste

We want to assure you that all of our clinics are a safe environment for you to come to rehabilitate your injuries. Thank you for partnering with us so that we can continue to provide you with the highest level of care so that you can return to the activities you love.
