Online physiotherapy is a branch of online healthcare service that allows patients to receive physiotherapy treatment remotely via the internet. Emerald Hills Physio & Sports Clinic provides telehealth options for specific conditions. Telehealth is a way to receive physiotherapy services from your own home or office. It lets you connect with our physiotherapists in real-time using secure, user-friendly video conferencing platforms.
Our online physio sessions allow you to receive assessment, diagnosis, and treatment as in a traditional physio clinic. In addition, our trained online physio will guide you through exercises, stretches, and other techniques for pain management and complete recovery.
Our physiotherapists conduct telehealth physio sessions using secure, user-friendly video conferencing platforms like Zoom or Skype. We’ll work with you to determine what platform best suits you and your device during your booking appointment.
Our physiotherapists will discuss your symptoms and medical history in the first therapy call. Then there’ll be another video session for physical assessment. Based on the evaluation, our physio will create a treatment plan catering to your symptoms. The sessions may include exercise programs, manual therapy, education, advice, etc.
Furthermore, our physiotherapists will take you through instructional videos on performing the exercises or therapies at home. The rest of the sessions will be to monitor your progress as you recover.
