TelePhysio

To assess, diagnose and manage musculoskeletal conditions 

Through video-link, your physiotherapist will be able to go through a thorough history of what your complaint is, how it started, what the patterns are, exactly how it troubles you, and from this information get a really good idea what the condition could possibly be.

Your physiotherapist will then talk you through how to do particular tests and movements to replicate the same tests we would perform in our rooms. This will further guide us in knowing what the condition is and how to best address it.

From here, we can provide guidance on what self-management techniques will work to help, the do’s and don’ts for the issue, and lots of handy information on how to manage it. We will use a video based exercise software called Physitrack to set-up a self management program that will get emailed directly to you. And we can take you through this step by step as we set it up. This program also has an associated app, PhysiApp, that can display your exercises and help you track your progress.

All you need for this TelePhysio session is access to a computer or smartphone. Instructions will be provided to you on what free program or app you need to download once you have finalised your booking.

We will contact you by phone five minutes prior to your appointment to take payment over the phone by credit card and ensure you are ready to go for your appointment.

A large number of health funds have nominated that they will support TeleHealth physio sessions in the same way they do for in-rooms treatment. Please check directly with your health fund to get more information about this.
