Telehealth Physiotherapy Evidence
Is telehealth effective? Yes! Recent research in this area has shown that Telehealth consultations are an effective way to manage many musculoskeletal problems. The pros of this style of treatment include empowering you to solve your injury through guided and specific exercise that you can complete at home (where you spend most of your time).
How Can You Help Me Without Hands-On Treatment?
We can show you how to test your movements using simple hands on techniques for assessing muscle tone and guarding. We can problem solve your issue and give some guidance as to how to best correct it. This will include home based exercises, self release strategies, and education. If hands-on treatment is vital to your recovery, we can teach someone else in your household how to perform the treatment for you.
