Effective hygiene habits for the whole family

Updated: May 23, 2023

Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment is crucial for any physical therapy studio. As a dedicated provider of health and wellness, we prioritize the health and safety of clients and staff. By establishing effective hygiene habits for the whole family, we can create a safe and welcoming space that promotes optimal well-being. In this blog post, we will discuss key hygiene practices you can implement.

  1. Regular Hand Hygiene:

One of the simplest yet most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs is through regular handwashing. Encourage your clients and staff to wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after each session. We also have hand sanitizer throughout the studio, serving as a convenient alternative.

  1. Enhanced Cleaning Protocols:

Developing robust cleaning protocols is paramount to maintaining a clean and sanitary physical therapy studio. We have a routine cleaning schedule for all areas. We use appropriate disinfectants to clean frequently-touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, exercise equipment, and treatment tables. Upholstery and linens are replaced and cleaned with each individual use.

  1. Proper Ventilation:

Good ventilation is essential for ensuring fresh air circulation and reducing the risk of airborne contaminants. We open windows and utilize fans to improve air circulation within the facility. This practice can contribute to maintaining a healthy and comfortable environment for both clients and staff.

  1. Encourage Respiratory Etiquette:

We promote practices such as covering the mouth and nose with a tissue or elbow when coughing or sneezing. Please don't share personal items like towels or water bottles, as this can facilitate the transmission of germs.

  1. Screenings and Precautionary Measures:

We strongly encourage those who are feeling unwell to reschedule their appointments and provide them with resources for seeking appropriate medical care.


By implementing effective hygiene habits, we can maintain a healthy environment for the whole family. Prioritize regular hand hygiene, enhance cleaning protocols, ensure proper ventilation, and be educated about respiratory etiquette. By doing so, we maintain a safe and welcoming space that promotes overall wellness and fosters a positive experience for all. Remember, the health and safety of our clients and staff are paramount, and your well-being is at the forefront of this practice.
