Dear valued customers, we are making changes to our daily online and in-store routines that will help protect everyone during this difficult time. Effective Monday March 23, we are introducing social distancing protocols at our in-store location. We are still accepting all United States & Canadian orders. Orders can still be called in or placed online and shipped directly to you as usual however, if ordered as an "in-store pick-up" at our location we have made the following changes. As soon as your order is ready for pickup, we will contact you by phone and make the appropriate arrangements. The Physiotherapy Room has always made the health and safety of our staff and customers a top priority, and we will work to make ordering as effective and safe as we can, for everyone. We thank you for your understanding and patience during these unusual times, and we look forward to the time when we can return to our standard routines.
