What is the Process?
The online physiotherapy service is based around two components.
Arranging a video consultation / assessment over the internet between yourself and a very experienced Chartered Physiotherapist which will result in a personalised plan of action.
Treatment is delivered via exercise and advice, using web based exercise software that allows presciption of a specific exercise programme that you follow at home.
1.Book Your Initial Consultation
You will need to book a 45 minute appointment for your initial consultation. Make sure you have good internet service, a private space to be in and be dressed in loose clothing so that the problem area can be viewed.
2. Fill in a Pre-Assessment Form
This gives us an idea of what the problem is and prepares the physio so that the assessment process is as efficient as possible. We will also be able to check in advance that your problem is suitable for our online service.
3. Get Online at the Appointment Time
Make sure you’re in a quiet space giving you some privacy . Check your internet is working well and the camera and microphone are working. Follow the instructions on your appointment confirmation email to connect with your online physio.
4. Complete the Video Consultation
Your online physio will discuss your problem with you and then ask you to do some physical tests to help with the diagnosis and creation of a plan of action. Your physio will then talk you through the treatment options and start your treatment plan.
5. Follow your Personalised Treatment Plan
Obviously the most important part!! Your online physio will provide you with a link to a personalised online exercise programme that you can access on computer or through a free app on your phone.
6. Book a Follow Up Appointment If Required.
Your online physio will advise you as to whether follow up sessions will be required and at what frequency is recommended to get the best results
