Virtual Physiotherapy (Telerehabilitation)
In the wake of the CVID-19 pandemic, the demand for virtual healthcare is increasing rapidly. A recent study by Women’s College Hospital in Toronto shows 98% of patients feel the quality of virtual consolations is the same or better than in-person care. If you are considering virtual consultations we can help. All our Physiotherapists now offer Virtual Assessment and Treatment Sessions also known as Tele Rehabilitation. All you need is a computer, tablet or smart phone and we can connect you with one of our qualified Physiotherapists. To book a virtual session contact us at: [email protected] or call (902) 798-0026.
Telerehabilitation and telemedicine have been around in their current form for over 20 years but are still considered a new concept. As the name suggests ‘tele’ refers to ‘over distance’ and the initial method of communication was the telephone. Nowadays, high speed connections and web cameras mean that the ability to perform thorough assessments and guiding treatments remotely is extremely viable and highly effective.
Many of the conditions typically seen in a clinic setting face to face with a physiotherapist are now possible to treat using modern technology. Many health care professionals are incorporating telemedicine and telerehabilitation into their practice from GPs to psychologists, dietitians – and now physiotherapists!
Virtual appointments are useful for those with:
· limited mobility or transportation options
· restrictive work hours/schedule
· young children at home
· extended travel/time away from home
· rural settings with no clinic nearby
· poor weather conditions
Prior to your appointment, we’ll email you with all the necessary information, including a link to your session. All you need to do at the confirmed time is click using your device of choice and you’re set.
