Online Physiotherapy Consultations
Due to the COVID-19 Virus Self-Isolation and Social Distancing are a fact of life for many of us right now, and for the foreseeable future.
This means that many, even most, people are unable to access treatment in the usual way. I am therefore introducing Online Physiotherapy Consultations so that you can continue to access quality assessment and treatment throughout this time. While this is new territory for Mullumbimby Integrative Physiotherapy, and perhaps for you, Online Physiotherapy has been successfully used by people in isolated situations for some time.
How does it work?
Just as in a regular consultation, I will ask you questions about your symptoms, how the problem started, how it behaves over a 24 hour period, aggravating factors and so forth to better understand the injury or condition. I will then observe via online video as I guide you through a serious of movements and tests.
In this way I can gain the most accurate diagnosis possible. I will then give you advice regarding home management strategies, a specifically tailored exercise program, postural and movement advice and whatever else is needed to guide your recovery.
While this may seem very different to the treatment you are used to, it is well recognized that manual therapy is only one small component of treatment. The right knowledge, self-management strategies and progressive exercise programs are the essential foundations of any successful recovery.
If you are in need of Physiotherapy services and are unable to attend in person, please consider this valuable online option.
