Western Berks Physical Therapy: Adapting to Keep Clinics Safe

 

Updated September 21st, 2020: Western Berks Physical Therapy clinics are open and serving patients at all office locations. Prior to COVID-19, physical therapy clinics were busy places with lots of people coming and going. However, just like many other businesses, Western Berks Physical Therapy has made changes to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 among their staff and patient populations, while continuing to deliver needed services to the public.

Remember, physical therapists are medical professionals who were trained to deal with infectious diseases and keep people safe long before COVID-19 existed. Don’t let concerns over COVID-19 keep you in pain or from the treatment you need! You’re in good hands with Western Berks Physical Therapy.
