We offer Telehealth appointments

Providing effective and safe practice standards is our main objective. During times when it is unsafe for you or our team to meet face-to-face, we offer Telehealth appointments to ensure your recovery progresses safely.

How it works

From the comfort of your own home we arrange a convenient time to conduct your physiotherapy appointment via video link.

We will send you a link with clear instructions of how to join the video call.

You will require a laptop or tablet with a webcam, or a smartphone with camera to join your Telehealth appointment.

What to expect

During your assessment we will listen to your concerns and ask a series of questions so that we can understand you pain and how it behaves, and discuss any other concerns or specific needs.

We will demonstrate a range of movements we would like you to perform. Your response to these movements will help us formulate a diagnosis and personalised treatment plan.

We will conduct a comprehensive overview of your treatment plan. This will include education specific to your injury in addition to the exercises you will be focusing on for your recovery.

Get in touch via email or phone and a member of our friendly team will be able to advise if your condition can be managed virtually.

Examples of conditions we can manage via Telehealth include:
