VIRTUAL PHYSIOTHERAPY CONSULTATIONS
How can you do a Physiotherapy consultation without touching someone ?
As physiotherapists a good proportion of our session with you is spent talking to you and listening to what your problems are .
What happens in the virtual consultation ?
During your physiotherapy consultation we listen to you , ask further questions so we can take a detailed thorough assessment of your problem , your pain and how it is limiting your everyday function and the impact on your work and hobbies . We also ask you what your expectations are regarding your physiotherapy treatment – what activity you are wanting to get back to so we can prepare a detailed treatment plan with you so we can help you achieve your goals.
I will ask you to perform certain movements by demonstrating them to you . I will assess your posture and function.
Diagnosis of your Problem
Having taken all the information you have given me and discussing the findings of my assessment I will explain your diagnosis with you . I will provide a detailed personal exercise and treatment programme to help you get back to your activity.
Personal Treatment and Recovery Plan
The exercises , self- massage , stretches , mobilisation techniques will be demonstrated to you and I will check that you are able to carry these out by watching you perform them yourself during the video consultation.
The exercises will be emailed to you using our exercise software programme which you will be able to view videos of the exercises using the link provided.
At all times throughout the consultation, you will be able to ask any questions or concerns you may have.
Please contact us if you are unsure whether a virtual consultation will be of benefit to you and we will be happy to answer any of your queries.
