To all of our friends and clients from Clegg & Guest PT-
Physical therapy has been deemed an essential service and we will continue to operate during the shelter in place order. We are pleased to offer telehealth visits for appropriate clients. Telehealth is covered by most insurances including Medicare. We are using an appropriate HIPAA compliant platform for our client’s protection as well as avoiding the recent onset of hacking that has occurred on other non HIPAA compliant sites. Our office is currently open on Monday-Fridays. Please call our office for instructions on how to schedule/request a telehealth visit. We will be checking voicemail and email to answer questions or concerns regarding our client's health needs throughout the week.
We ask that if you are experiencing symptoms, such as fever, cough, or breathing difficulties, that you call our clinic to reschedule your appointment or change to a telehealth visit. We will work to accommodate patients to the best of our ability. We continue to monitor guidance from the CDC, as well as the Michigan Department of Community Health and at Local levels and will make changes as necessary to keep our patients and staff healthy.
How is physical therapy an essential business?
A memorandum was issued on March 19, 2020 by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security which states:
“If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.”
The guidance goes on to further define the “essential infrastructure workers” to include “physical and occupational therapists and assistants”. Their advice to our industry is to strive to stay open and treat the patient population during this pandemic. We, as physical therapists, play a key role in keeping as many people as we can out of emergency rooms, physician offices, and hospitals. This will not only free up the medical teams to treat those impacted by COVID-19, but also limit the exposure of those seeking care for treatment that a physical therapist can provide. We are able to practice within the recommended CDC guidelines and we are following local government mandates. We are here to assist in keeping people healthy, out of the physician’s office and maintain our efforts to assist in reducing the overuse of opoid pain medication.
Employees are screened daily for COVID 19. Any employee with respiratory symptoms or a fever is instructed to not return to work until they are well.
After each patient encounter, staff is washing hands with soap and water or an appropriate alcohol based hand sanitizer.
We are cleaning and disinfecting objects, such as treatment tables, exercise mats, weights, exercise balls, pens, door handles, faucets, etc, after each patient use.
Staff members are wearing masks
We are providing telehealth visits for those that have the technology.
COVID-19 | YES WE ARE OPEN!
Committed to Excellence.
Committed to You

How To Lift Properly
Have you ever "thrown out" your back while lifting something?
Back injuries are often caused by improper bending/lifting and carrying heavy objects, but they are easily prevented. Here is a video of Stan demonstrating the proper lifting technique that you can apply at your workplace, home, and even at the supermarket. At CGPT, we not only help you rehabilitate from pain and injuries, but also teach you how to prevent future ones.
Sleeping Position to Decrease Low Back Pain, Sciatica, Knee Pain, or Hip Pain
We spend 1/3 or 1/4 of our day laying and sleeping. How you align your joints will make a difference in how they feel in the morning. If you have a lot of pain when you wake up in the morning, altering your joints and spine into neutral alignment can make a large difference in decreasing morning pain.
Stan has extensive experience in running, cross-country, track as well as a sub-specialty in the treatment of overuse injuries of the foot and leg. In this video he shows you how to have proper cadence to decrease joint pain while running.
How to Safely Get Out of Bed
In addition to our PTs' experience with athletes, runners, and dancers alike, they can also help anyone of all ages improve daily essential activities that may be causing pain. In this video Stan shows us how to get out of bed with proper technique to prevent pain or injury. We will not only help you move better during your visits, but also teach you to sustain it even outside of physical therapy.
