To our valued Red Canyon family,
During these difficult times, we wanted to reach out to our patients.
First and foremost, our patients’ safety is our number one priority. We want to ensure you that we are taking all of the recommended and necessary precautions to keep our clinic clean and our patients safe.

We have increased our cleaning protocols – all equipment, surfaces, and high-traffic areas are being cleaned before and after any patient contact. Our therapists are continuing to practice proper handwashing before and after each patient.
We ask that if you are feeling ill or have been around someone who is, please call us to reschedule your appointment for a later time.
We are currently open during our normal hours (M-F 6a-7p). If this happens to change, we will contact our current patients as soon as possible. Our goal is to stay open as long as we are able to and continue helping our patients that need Physical Therapy.
Please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns.
