Dr. Steph has Moved!
As of March 22, 2021, I am very excited to announce that I have moved my office to Kids SuperGym Mississauga (just a 10 minute drive from my former office). My schedule will remain similar, by appointment only Monday through Friday.
Kids SuperGym Mississauga
3620A Laird Road Unit #11
Mississauga, Ontario L5L 6A8
Please note my fee schedule has changed:
Initial assessments $130
Subsequent Visits $70
Extended Treatments $100
I hope you have all kept healthy during this time. I wanted to touch base with you to let you know that I am booking appointments. I am taking patients on a part time basis days with limited morning appointments and mostly afternoon appointments. I am able to see less patients per day as 10 minutes is left in between patients for cleaning and sanitizing. It might be a bit more challenging to get an appointment however less traffic in the office compared to other multi-disciplinary settings I hope will add to your feeling of safety and risk minimization.
To my patients that I have seen already, welcome back! To those patients I have not yet seen I am looking forward to seeing you for Chiropractic treatment when you feel ready!
I am sending a COVID-19 screening questionnaire for you to print, review and sign once you book an appointment. Please note that you must answer no to all questions in order to keep an appointment with me.
ARRIVING AT THE OFFICE:
Please bring a mask with you. If you do not have a mask, I will provide you with one.
When you arrive, please call me from your car. We will go over your health history first. Once we finish, please come to the door and I will open it for you and close it for you as well. If you have a mask, please put it on before you arrive.
I will check your temperature with a forehead thermometer and provide you hand sanitizer or you may wash your hands in the bathroom. If you can plan around going to the bathroom before you arrive, it would be helpful to minimize your risk.
I will process payment before we start and email you a receipt. Debit (tap preference), e-transfer, and cash will be accepted. As per before, no credit card payments at this time.
If you have your phone, wallet, keys or purse you can place them on a bench in the treatment room that I can sanitize easily between patients. Please limit the amount of items you bring inside if possible. If you are wearing sandals, consider bringing a pair of socks to wear inside.
After treatment, I will sanitize your hands again and I will open the door for you to reduce your need to touch more items.
CLEANING AND PPE:
I will be wearing a mask and gloves during treatment although depending if taping or acupuncture treatment is required, I might need to take the gloves off. I will put on a fresh pair if needed to resume treatment.
Please let me know if you prefer me to wear a fresh gown while treatment or if you would like to wear one on top of your clothes.
Thank you for your accommodation during this time. I am following directive from Public Health as well as my regulatory college to make sure cleaning, sanitizing, and maximum protection protocols are in place for both of our safety and still providing high quality care for you. If there is something more that I can do to make you comfortable and feel safe, please let me know.
Please note that high touch and soft surfaces like waiting room chairs, towels, heating pad, and magazines have been removed.
Please reach out if you'd like to book an appointment. Safety is my first priority! I look forward to seeing you and working through this new "normal."
I am excited to welcome you back in my office!
Please see the picture below to best prepare for your visit with me. Personal Protective Equipment will need to be worn and I also am ensuring enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures as safety and health is of utmost importance to me. Patients will be required to complete a self assessment questionnaire before arriving for treatment.
Please contact me if you'd like to arrange an appointment with me:
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
COVID-19 Clinic Update
Dear valued patients,
The health and safety of my patients and my family is my top priority. This is a critical moment across Ontario and things are unfolding at a rapid rate as it relates to the COVID-19 virus.
After careful consideration and a social responsibility to implement social distancing policies based on the guidance of public health authorities within Canada, I have made the difficult decision to close my clinic effective March 16, 2020. I will reopen on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020.
What does this mean for my patients?
The information around COVID-19 changes daily. And all we can do is continue to monitor the situation and hope that the actions we are taking help Ontario to flatten the curve.
I'd like to personally thank you for your continued support as we navigate this difficult and exceptional situation, which is affecting all our lives in a way we never thought possible.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Lift Light to Shovel Right
Winter weather can pack a punch and, with the season’s heavy snowfalls, injuries often result. Improper snow shovelling is often to blame.
But shovelling out after a storm doesn’t have to leave you stiff and sore. With a little know-how, you can clear your driveway without the all-too-common back, neck and shoulder pain cramping your style. Here’s how:
Before You Start
Push the snow to one side and avoid throwing it. If you must throw it, avoid twisting and turning — position yourself to throw straight at the snow pile.
BEND YOUR KNEES.
Use your knees, leg and arm muscles to do the pushing and lifting while keeping your back straight.
WATCH FOR ICE.
Be careful on icy walkways and slippery surfaces. Intermittent thaws and subsequent freezing can lead to ice building up underfoot, resulting in nasty slips and falls. Throw down some salt or sand to ensure you have a good footing.
Once you’ve mastered safe snow shovelling techniques, you’ll be free to have fun and stay fit all winter.
If you do experience pain, consult Dr. Steph to assess your specific needs and identify a course of action that’s right for you.
