Can’t Make Your Physio Appt Due To Lockdown? Book A Virtual Physio Session With Me TODAY!!
The concept of Virtual Physiotherapy may cause you some initial anxiety or you may have some preservations but I can confidently assure you that I manage musculoskeletal problems successfully every day via remote rehabilitation, achieving great outcomes for many people!
The aim of this blog is to give you an understanding of how your problem, injury or pain can be successfully managed remotely – without needing to wait to see me in person.
So What Does A Virtual Appointment Look Like?
A full assessment of the condition or injury – yes this can still happen over a video call!
Typically this will include questioning about your problem and then your therapist will ask you to perform certain movements on the video call to screen and assess your function. You will be provided with advice and exercises on treating and managing your condition. If you wish we can work with our personal trainers to adapt your current 360 Athletic Training program.
After this assessment you will be given advice and education regarding your condition and what the rehabilitation process will involve. Best of all we can help explain to you how you can optimise your recovery in your day to day life.
So how will I know what the problem is without seeing and touching the problem area?
Understandable this is the first big doubt most people have when considering Virtual Physiotherapy. Thankfully the majority of information we physio’s use to work out what is going on and how to help comes from you and your case history.
Simply we can paint a very accurate picture of what is going on through thorough questioning and on screen movement testing. This allows me to establish a clear understanding of what your symptoms are indicating is wrong. Once this is achieved then there is no reason why Virtual Physiotherapy won’t work for you. Only a tiny minority of problems need scans or surgery. The majority of problems can be managed through Physiotherapy treatment.
