COVID-19 Update for Patients


Dear valued Spring Physio Gym and Kooyong Physiotherapy Centre clients,

It is with sincere regret that we must announce: 

As of close of business TODAY Friday 27 March we will be closing the practice doors for the time to contribute to facing the COVID-19 crisis. 

As a community, social distancing practices are our biggest tool to face COVID-19 and hopefully reduce the impact on people's lives. 

Keeping you safe

As health professionals we must firstly do no harm.  Presently risking exposure to our patient base and our staff is an unacceptable risk to our collective health and the health of the broader community. 

This does not mean that your injuries are trivial nor does it mean that staying active is not important. In fact staying active is essential. 

What it means is that we must find ways to exercise at a physical distance from our friends and family for now, not forever. 

What are we doing now? 


We are currently absorbing the impact of this decision on our staff. It is a very hard decision for everyone.

Your physiotherapists are facing huge challenges, as are many of you.

Regardless of whether you work for yourself, for a small business like us or large businesses, this effects us all. We must do this together with kindness and support. 

Exercise - We love it!

We are working to find ways to stay connected to you during this time to offer advice and ideas on exercise at home. Whether it is specifically about an injury or about general exercising at home, we will find ways to assist you. 

There is plenty that can be achieved with little or no equipment to keep you moving, we are here to help you learn how.

Exercise is always important but during a period of isolation and stress it becomes a life line. We are here for you with ideas and programs to deliver that life line. 

Continued Physiotherapy Services 

If you are currently receiving treatment for an injury, your physiotherapist will get in touch with you over the next week to advise on how to manage your injury during this time. 

If you regularly have a group session at Spring or Kooyong we will be in touch as well to talk about a home exercise program to keep you moving. 

Our Kooyong & Spring community is loyal and close-knit and our team will struggle to be out of contact with the people that bring them joy, enthusiasm and such a high level of job satisfaction. We are exploring various platforms to provide ongoing advice in an effort to remain in contact and help you continue to manage your injury or exercises from home.

We will continue to be available through this time to consult via phone and telehealth platforms as we set them up.  

If you need urgent advice please contact us via email and you will be contacted by a member of the team as soon as possible:
