If you’ve been watching the news, you’re probably already aware that the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States is growing. As a precautionary measure, we’d like to offer some recommendations and information about coronavirus as it relates to your care. Please read through the following FAQ and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Am I at risk? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offered the following advice:

  • The majority of the American public is unlikely to be exposed to this virus, so generally speaking, the immediate health risk posed by COVID-19 is considered low.
  • People in communities with a growing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are at an elevated-though still relatively low-risk of exposure.
  • Like other viruses, COVID-19 cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities, or racial backgrounds; exposure to the disease itself is the greatest risk factor associated with contracting it.

What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of coronavirus include:

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we ask that you contact your primary care physician for further advice. In the meantime, as a courtesy to your therapist, our clinic staff, and your fellow patients, please do not come into the clinic at this time. Instead, please contact us to reschedule your future appointments-even if it’s last-minute-by calling the clinic.

I’m only feeling a little sick. What should I do?  
While it may be tempting to come in for your treatment if you “just have a cough,” we do ask that you reschedule your appointment if you are feeling at all sick. In the meantime (and if your strength allows), continue with your prescribed home exercise program, and reach out to your therapist via phone or email if you have any questions.

What MOPT is doing…  
We are screening all patients according to guidance from the CDC and our local health department.  We always keep patient safety in mind and disinfect on a regular basis, regardless of the COVID-19 outbreak.  All of our staff washes their hands with soap and water regularly and uses hand sanitizer between treating patients.  We are taking all cleaning and hygiene precautions recommended by the CDC.

We appreciate your willingness to help us with this matter.

Wishing you good health,

What Our Patients Are Saying

Michael Stein & Joe Bailey are the best! They are not only really nice guys, but exceptional therapists. Their organization is, without a doubt, the best in the Chula Vista area.

— Roger U. / Facebook

Hands down the best physical therapy facility and treatment I have ever received. The staff is friendly and welcoming and will work with you to ensure that you get better. Overall the best experience I've had with physical therapists!

— Bravo P. / Yelp

This office took care of me for almost 10 years, through 4 surgeries getting back to as close to normal as possible considering where I was when I came in. All I learned has helped me to maintain my health for many years, and counting!

— Mary Jane W. / Facebook

Being an athlete it was reassuring to know that Mike and Curtis wanted to help me get back to the same level I was performing at in my sport and not just to minimize the pain. They gave me the confidence to return to my sport without fear of reinjury.

Orthopedic physical therapy is both a science and an art that focuses on improving the function of the human body. Therapeutic techniques can target muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments, depending on the patient’s unique challenges. It nearly always includes manual, hands-on therapy from a licensed physical or occupational therapist, but a comprehensive approach, like the one offered at MOPT, also includes patient education and individualized therapeutic exercise programs that can be practiced at home. Treatment can also include therapies such as aquatic therapy, acupuncture, and AlterG therapy. When searching for “manual physical therapy near you,” your search starts and ends with MOPT! Allow our licensed physical and occupational therapists to help you improve function, restore flexibility, and enhance your mobility in a friendly and professional patient-centered atmosphere.
