COVID-19 Update for Patients


Dear valued Spring Physio Gym and Kooyong Physiotherapy Centre clients,


In light of the recent State Government announcements and the ever emerging news and advice regarding the community efforts to combat the Coronavirus pandemic, we would like to clarify what we are doing.

Today Monday March 23rd, Spring Physio Gym and Kooyong Physiotherapy are OPEN for business.


We are a healthcare businesses that has NOT been mandated to close. 
We are not a “gym” in the sense of community gym, that has been ordered to be shut down.

Of course things are changing day by day and we will be following the government directives. 

We understand that social distancing and isolation measures are recommended for all,  and if you or your family members are at risk, then it is likely wise to stay at home. 

Keeping you safe

As some of you are aware, we are taking the following measures to reduce the risk of infection to all of our Spring/Kooyong community, including staff and patients:
  • Classes at Spring Physio Gym TODAY are limited to a maximum of  2 people in the gym space to allow more than the required 4m2 between all clients. 
  • All surfaces in reception, treatment rooms, gym  and exercise equipment, door handles and bathrooms are being wiped down frequently between all clients.
  • Please bring your own towel to the gym space 
  • Clients attending are screened for any COVID-19 risk, and asked not to attend if they are in high risk category
  • Physiotherapy treatments are continuing. Obviously by nature this is a close contact scenario.  If you wish to wear your own face mask this is acceptable,  but we are unable to provide one for you.
  • All treatment beds are now without linen, and will be wiped down and disinfected between every client.
  • All our staff are well and are of course performing appropriate personal hygiene with hand washing frequently. 

Business interruption 

  • As of Tuesday March 24 all group classes will discontinue. 1:1 sessions available for pilates or gym. 
We advise all patients with higher risk to remain at home
  • Patients with respiratory conditions. 
  • Patients over the age of 70 years. 

Continued business

We are here to help you continue your rehabilitation as best we can:
  • Our physios can provide you with a home exercise program that you can access digitally and do independently.
  • Please email us if you would like an updated Home Exercise program
  • We have limited equipment for sale while stocks last - retail outlets such as Rebel, online sporting equipment are still in operation for these supplies.  Equipment such as foam rollers, spikey balls, theraband etc to complete a program at home. 
  • As of Tuesday March 24th. All classes will be discontinued, but you can book a 1:1 with your physiotherapist for supervised therapeutic exercises at the same cost as your class. 
  • This would be a great opportunity to set up your home exercise program and get proper instruction on how to perform independently.
  • If you have acute pain and are in urgent need of physiotherapy treatment, please book in the next few days, as we don’t know what the “Next Step” government directive may be. 

Stay in touch

We acknowledge that this is a difficult time for all, and wish you all the best for you and family to get through it all unscathed. 
We thank you all for your kindness and loyalty at this time, and know that we care about all of you.

Keep moving and keep active.
