MARKETPLACE PHYSICAL THERAPY IS STILL SERVING YOU DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been causing numerous health care facilities to shut down, we as medical professionals are diligently trying to serve our patients in the best ways possible without risking the spread of this disease. The sedentary lifestyle that we’re sure many people have experienced since being quarantined to their homes can actually lead to more aches, pains, and discomfort than one may think. Fortunately, we have you covered. As some may know, the Department of Homeland Security has deemed physical therapists as “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, Marketplace Physical Therapy will remain open and seeing patients during this time, while taking the necessary precautions to make sure everything is sanitary, and everyone is safe. As Homeland Security states, “If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.” For more information on our safety practices for treating patients during this pandemic, and/or how your appointments might function differently, don’t hesitate to contact us.

I went from not being able to walk without a cane to running, being physically active without limitations, and even completing a Spartan Super because of their wonderful quality of care, attention to patient needs/desires, and follow through. This clinic doesn’t give you a “to do list;” they listen to your goals and create a recovery plan custom-tailored to the patient. They’re not just therapeutic, they’re constructive. They guided me through the tried and true recovery process, gave me advice on workouts upon completing the recovery plan, and coached me on lifestyle changes to help avoid issues moving forward. I won’t go anywhere else!” - Garrett L.
