Online appointments Due to the COVID-19 crisis, in March 2020, the clinic was forced to close its doors for face-to-face appointments. This left the question about how to still support our loyal patients during their time of need. We appreciate that your pain and disfunction does not simply disappear during a global pandemic and that you are still likely to require support, therefore an online consultation service has now been set up.
We appreciate that this is a new concept for us as clinicians and yourself as a patient and many people have expectations of hands on treatment from physiotherapy, however there are so many more skills that we can offer.
Just simply listening to the patient and using clinical reasoning we can have a reasonable idea for diagnosis. We can look at how you move using a camera to try to identify weaknesses and links to possible pathologies.
We can use education to explain what is happening to your body and provide a treatmen plan including indepth exercise programmes. We can monitor using emails and repeat appointments.
While we appreciate this is not the ideal scenario to be working in, we feel it is the best service in what is currently not an ideal world. Hopefully we will be back up and running with our normal services soon.
