Online physiotherapy is currently the only option we have for the treatment and management of any pain or injuries. We understand being in isolation does not mean that you do not have back or neck pain, or shoulder pain and we want to be able to continue to help people with the correct treatment and rehabilitation plan.
Anyone who is struggling with pain, stiffness or injuries that are stopping them being able to live the life they want comfortably. Whether that is because your back pain is stopping you being able to put your socks on in the morning or that hip pain has come back because you are now running more frequently than you are used to then we are able to build a bespoke treatment plan to get you back to full health.
Your physiotherapist will carry out your appointment via a private video call using a secure programme (provided by our partner, Zoom).
Your physiotherapist will ask the same questions and carry out the same assessments that they would if they saw you in person. In the first session, they will:
All you will need is a phone, iPad or Computer with a camera. If you are using a phone or iPad you will need to download the Zoom App from the app store. You will be sent a link via email that you click at the time of your appointment. This will connect you with your Physiotherapist directly. When connecting make sure to select "Use computer audio".
Make sure that you are somewhere that you can move around a little so that the Physiotherapist can see you move and get you to carry out some tests. Also make sure that the camera is set up that you can be seen clearly on the screen.
An initial Assessment for a new injury will take up to 45mins and a follow up appointment will be up to 30mins.
We can achieve more via video than over telephone. Using video, we can complete a functional assessment, observe your range of movements and carry out modified testing to help with diagnosis. We can also see your enviroment such as your workstation that you are working from home at and advise on ways to modify this to aid your recovery.
Online physio is currently covered by most private medical insurers, including Aviva, AXA, Bupa, Vitality, IPRS, Cigna and HCML.
