During the Covid 19 pandemic healthcare made huge advances in its use of technology for virtual or telehealth services. Physiotherapy has been no exception. Although there will always be a need for face to face service, some may wish to see their physio via a video or tele appointment.
A virtual consultation can be an excellent option if you are working away, shielding or medically vulnerable during times of high community transmission of Covid 19. Some clients will also have a personal reason for preferring this type of appointment, such as chronic fatigue, anxiety or a physical mobility limitation making a face to face appointment inconvenient.
How the appointment works
As with a face to face appointment a full history will be taken, symptoms can be discussed and if desired, video technology used for some observations and examinations. Following the examination a diagnosis will be provided along with advice and a management plan for your condition.
At Blundellsands and Crosby Physio we also use an exercise prescription management software called Rehab My Patient. This allows us to send you a rehab program complete with exercise videos and advice by email.
