RIGO QUERA SALVA inform that due to the ‘Alarm’ established by the Spanish Government and following the recommendations of the Health Department, all clinical activities related with Physiotherapy and Osteopathy, need to be cancelled.

The clinic will remain closed to these activities, at the moment and officially until March 30th, but most probably extended to April 13th, all depending on the evolution of the situation.

All the appointments (until April 13th) for consultation with Dr. Rigo have been already contacted and following the recommendations of the Medical College, temporary postponed. Scoliosis evolution use to be not relevantly altered in few weeks, but in months. Hopefully, we expect the situation will come back soon to a relative normality, at least allowing us to offer regular consultation.

All this is for the benefit of our fellow citizen, especially those in higher risk, in order to reduce the transmission of the Virus and flatten the curve of incidence to prevent the collapse of our Public Health System.

For any further information or consultation, please contact to
