Telehealth is a remote video consultation where you are able to have a one on one physiotherapy consult. From these consultations the physiotherapist will be able to diagnose your complaint through a full subjective assessment as well as carrying out objective tests tailored for remote assessments. They will be able to refer the patient for any necessary investigations such as x-rays or scans if required. Once they have a diagnosis they will be able to advise on what activities are safe and which ones to avoid and give a prognosis on the timeframes and outcomes of the complaint. They will also implement the necessary exercise management plan with the help of videos where necessary and if required onward referrals to medical practitioners and specialists will be made.
The cost of a Telehealth appointment is less than that of a face to face consultation at the clinic.
Following each appointment the physiotherapist will send through an email with all the content from the consultation including videos or photos of the exercises that were prescribed.
