What is Virtual Physiotherapy?
Virtual physiotherapy or “telehealth” physiotherapy is a form of virtual appointment using audio and video conferencing. Choice Health’s physiotherapists can assess a new problem or re-assess a previous problem using telehealth physiotherapy appointments. 80% of a diagnosis is obtained through a proper history, so your physiotherapist is able to ask you the right questions and listen to you as you describe your issue.
The physiotherapist may then lead you through a series of physical assessments where you may be asked to perform certain movements, for example. Based on this assessment, your physiotherapist will create an appropriate plan to help you attain your goals. During a telehealth appointment, your physiotherapist may teach you specific home rehabilitative strengthening and stretching exercises, muscle and joint self-release techniques and home care recommendations. Through the telehealth video services available, they will be able to watch you perform these and make sure you are doing them properly.
In follow-up telehealth appointments, your Choice physiotherapist can monitor your improvement, progress or modify your exercises, and answer any questions you may have as you progress toward your goals. Book via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is Virtual Chiropractic?
Virtual chiropractic or “telehealth” chiropractic is a form of appointment using audio/video conferencing software. If you have visited a chiropractic doctor at Choice Health Centre within the last year, we are able to help you through virtual telehealth chiropractic appointments. Your Choice chiropractor will listen, ask the right questions, and watch you perform a series of functional movement-related tests which will allow them to pinpoint the root cause of the problem to allow efficient and effective treatment planning.
Chiropractic is traditionally thought of as a hands-on treatment, however research has shown that the right home care, advice, and streamlined home exercises can be highly beneficial. During your telehealth chiropractic appointment, your chiropractor can even teach you helpful modified muscle and joint releases for you to safely perform on your own at home.
Our goal is to help you reach your health and wellness goals, and to continue to progress, rather than regress, while keeping us all safe during this time of social distancing.
