What is Online Physiotherapy?

 

Not every patient requires hands on treatment for an injury or after surgery.   In my clinical experience, most patients can reduce their pain and get better by learning the ‘do’s and don’ts’ for their condition and doing a few home based exercises daily.” – Terry Kane, Physiotherapist

 

The goal of physiotherapy is to help  patients reduce their pain  and improve their ability to do daily activities at home,  at work and in recreational activities.

With internet technology, Terry can now securely connect with patients on mobile phones, tablets and computers to assess and coach them on their condition,  how to reduce their pain  and provide safe rehab exercises.

Your safety is always the top priority.  If Terry has any health or safety concerns about you at any time, he will discuss them with you and offer to contact the most appropriate healthcare professional  with his recommendations.  

Online Physiotherapists ‘coach‘ patients with orthopaedic conditions in the following ways;

Conducting online assessments to ensure patient safety and to form a working diagnosis.

Ensuring patients are on the right clinical pathway for their condition

Providing patient education on their condition

Providing education on strategies to reduce flare ups of pain and how to self-manage pain flare ups.
