Back in action: Victoria’s five-day lockdown ends


Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine is thrilled to welcome patients back to our COVID-Safe clinic from Thursday 18th February.

Victoria will end its five-day lockdown from midnight on Wednesday night, with Premier Daniel Andrews announcing that almost all restrictions would be lifted and that “this circuit breaker has worked”. 

 We’re delighted to open up face-to face appointments in the clinic from 7am Thursday 18th February. 

We worked hard with many of our patients to reschedule early week appointments to Thursday and Friday. Our reception staff have been in contact with well over 50 patients, and our amazing physiotherapists have extended their operating hours to accommodate for rescheduled, existing and new patients wanting to fit in this week. 

Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine will continue to rigidly follow our COVID-19 Safe Action Plan to best guarantee the health, safety and continued care of our patients, staff and wider community. We are constantly updating and following the specific COVID-19 advice as outlined from the Australian Physiotherapy Association, as outlined here.

Do you have an existing appointment? 

If you have an appointment with us on Thursday 18th or Friday 19th, it’s business as usual! As per the current Victorian COVID-19 advice, we are still required to wear a mask indoors at all times. If you forget to bring one - we’re more than happy to provide you with one. 

Would you like to make an appointment? 

We’re entirely committed to the continuity of your physio care. We recognise that missing or delaying an appointment can have a big impact on your health. Our physios have extended their operating hours on Thursday and Friday to help accommodate for the missed time early this week. Telehealth is always an option if you would prefer a virtual follow up with your physio. 

Give our reception staff a call so we can find a way to fit you in! 

It’s people like you who motivate us to keep on swimming. 

We wanted to take this chance to thank our entire Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine community for their support this week as we all adapted to the naturally frustrating and ever-changing restrictions. 

For those patients who visited us through Telehealth, or rearranged their schedules to visit us on Thursday and Friday; thank you for your patience and understanding. 

We’re excited to see you again! 

Your team at Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine
