Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Hand Therapy & Naturopathic Medicine

Corona Virus / COVID-19  Update:

We are open!

Following the guidelines for the CDC, World Health Organization and Washington State Department of Health we will continue to see patients who need therapy.   Taking care of you is our most important goal.    Those patients who come to the clinic will be treated in private rooms. Our lobby will remain closed to follow the social distancing guidelines.  Starting May 5th we are fully re-opening our clinic to patients. Our staff is working hard to call patients and get you on the schedule. Things will not be the same in the office. We are asking patients to wear masks. Our staff is wearing masks and gloves when necessary. This protects us both. Each patient will be screened before coming in. All patients must wait in their vehicle and be brought in by a staff member before their appointment. We really look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces again!

Please note: EMG/NCS will are booking into June.

We are offering Tele-health to patients who prefer that option of therapy.

Patients who need therapy in the clinic:

  • Post operative patients
  • Patients with acute injuries
  • Patients in critical need who would benefit more being in the clinic than doing a tele-health visit.

Patients who would benefit from a virtual therapy visit:

  • Patients with underlying conditions
  • Patients with compromised immune systems
  • Patients who are currently sick
  • Patients over 60
  • If you have diabetes, lung disease or heart disease

What is a virtual therapy visit?

Tele-health is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care services remotely and manage your health care. These may be technologies you use from home or that your doctor uses to improve or support health care services.

At Rue & Primavera we feel that seeing you in the clinic is ideal, but not at the cost of sickness to you or our staff.  We also feel that we can guide you and provide relief with a tele-health format. At this time it may be your safest option.

“I had a back injury in August 2018 from moving heavy equipment at work that was compounded by a major seizure in January 2019. I had a coupe of steroid injections that didn’t really help for more than a week or so. I started physical therapy with Wendy in March 2019 and within a few weeks I had noticed a major difference in the pain level. It’s mid-June now, and while I know i’m never going to be completely pain free. I do feel 100% better than I did when I started. Coming into the office here is a lot like visiting family. The staff is always extremely friendly and welcoming.”

“I came in following a fractured elbow and wrist. I had developed CRPS in my right hand and was unable to turn my hand palm up. I wasn’t sure I would ever regain use of my right arm. I can now turn my arm properly and regained most of the movement in my right hand. I never would have come this far without Marrem’s excellent care. The entire staff has become friends and I will miss coming!”
