Blackhall Osteopaths Is Open
COVID Update: 23rd February 2022
The most recent advice from the Scottish government has indicated that Osteopaths need to continue to maintain appropriate infection control processes in line with guidance issued by public health bodies. So as to comply with these guidelines, there are certain things that you need to be made aware of and to consent to before attending your appointment.
Before attending you will be asked a few questions to make sure that you are asymptomatic for COVID-19, have not been in contact with anyone with symptoms in the previous 14 days and are not in the high risk or shielding group of patients. If you or anyone in your household is experiencing a high temperature, a new continuous cough, cold/flu like symptoms or loss/change to your sense of smell or taste, then you will be advised not to attend.
Please DO NOT arrive too early for your appointment as there are currently no waiting room facilities available.
It is no longer considered necessary for osteopaths to maintain a fallow period for aeration in the treatment room after each patient. However, it is still recommended that enough time is left between patients to allow for a thorough cleaning regime to be undertaken in line with the guidance previously published. All hard surfaces, the treatment couch, seating, pillows and commonly handled items will be cleaned with disinfectant.
Osteopaths are still required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including a face mask, and if appropriate disposable gloves and a disposable apron. Patients are encouraged to wear a face mask or face covering during the consultation unless they are unable to tolerate its use and are exempt.
All patients should be made aware however, that although we are taking every precaution possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to the virus when you attend for your appointment. Also there may be some staff members or patients attending the practice the same time that may not be vaccinated due to ineligibility, medical contraindication or personal choice.
So, If you are experiencing back, neck, muscle or joint pains, we are now here to help you. Get in touch to make an appointment. Our Osteopath has over 19 years experience and is fully insured and registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
Daniel Savage BSc (Hons) Osteopathy
Daniel has been practicing Osteopathy for over 20 years in his own clinic both in the south east of England, and for the past 10 years in Blackhall, Edinburgh
Osteopaths use touch and manipulation to diagnose and treat problems caused by a dysfunction of the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and connective tissue that make up the musculoskeletal system.
After a glowing recommendation I took my elderly mother to see Daniel with chronic knee and shoulder pain. At the age of 92 she received much relief and professional care. Daniel explained exactly what was going on which eased her concerns. His professional treatment has improved her quality of life.
Having been treated by Daniel for back and shoulder pain, which is vastly improving, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have Osteopathic treatment with anyone else. He is extremely thorough and explored all angles of my back/shoulder pain so that he could treat me to the best of my advantage. I have always found him to be approachable and helpful, and he doesn’t mind that I continually ask questions about what he is doing and why. I would definitely recommend him.
