We are now offering remote video appointments to provide support during the Coronavirus “lockdown”. These types of appointments are routinely used in the NHS to provide physiotherapy consultations, and can help when hands-on treatment is not possible.
You can book an appointment online on our website or by contacting our receptionists. As with normal appointments, there is the option of an initial consultation if you haven’t seen us before, or a follow up appointment if you have. Initial appointments are 40 minutes (£40), follow up appointments 20 minutes (£25).
Once the appointment is booked, you will receive a booking confirmation email which will include the link to click on at the time of your appointment to start the video session. Note that you will need an up to date web browser on your PC or you can use your smartphone.
During the appointment we will:
- Discuss the issue which is bothering you
- Assess what is causing it (muscles, joints etc)
- Where possible provide a diagnosis of the cause (eg. muscle strain, inflammation, nerve irritation)
- Provide self-help advice, exercises and a rehabilitation plan to alleviate the issue
We will send you an email following the appointment with exercises including video links explaining how to do each one.
At the end of the appointment the aim would be for you to understand what is causing the issue and what you can do to help yourself get better. If needed another appointment can be booked to monitor progress and provide further advice and guidance.
