What is telehealth?
A virtual alternative to face to face consultations.
We know many patients have concerns about attending the clinic in person (which we completely understand) but we also want to make sure you are able to access our physiotherapy services if you need them. Our physiotherapists are now offering video link up consultations through the Physitrak app. Many of you will be familiar with Physitrak already as this is the app we use to prescribe your exercise programs.
Physiotherapy as a whole has moved away from a reliance on complex machines and manual techniques, and more towards structured rehabilitation plans that the patient carries out themselves under guidance. This lends itself well to an online format, and there is extensive research evidence to support this. In fact, much of the research has found that the outcomes for telehealth are actually on par to face to face consultations.
And rest assured, if we feel that you do need to see a Physiotherapist or other health professional 'face to face', we will certainly let you know and there will be no charge.
Please call the clinic on 9570 1277 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to book.
