In addition to face to face treatment, Online Physiotherapy Consultations and Home Visits are available.

As an alternative to face-2-face treatment, we can offer video based consultations. 

Video based consultations are an excellent method of reaching an expert physiotherapist as an alternative to a face to face appointment.  As we can see you via the video link,  we can assess and evaluate your problem, give you strategies to reduce pain and we will send you a personalised rehab programme to continue with, to allow you to keep going as normal in these difficult times.

The charge for a 30 minute video consultation is £40.

From 15 June, we are now able to offer face 2 face treatments at the Clinics

Home Visits

As some of our patients are unable to attend our clinics we have increased our capacity for home visits.  This would only be following a discussion with you to ensure no one in the household is in isolation, has symptoms or are in a high risk category.

What Will Happen During a Video Consultation?

To determine the nature of your problem and to make a clinical diagnosis, the Physiotherapist’s assessment includes a detailed questioning about your problem.

We ask about:

  • How and when the pain started
  • What makes the pain worse and easier
  • How the pain affects your daily activity
  • Your sleep patterns
  • Your medication
  • Your past medical history

In addition, we can go through an examination of your movements. We will ask you to perform certain relevant movements and tests, which we will observe. During these movements, we will ask you about your pain.

Our excellent problem solving and clinical reasoning skills, with our wealth of experience allows us to make a clinical diagnosis.

Once a clinical diagnosis has been established, we can give you relevant advice to manage your condition. We will guide you through rehabilitation exercises to allow you to be proactive with your recovery. This will hopefully keep you going until we have the opportunity to see you face-to-face, as appropriate.

How do video consultations work?

Once the day and time has been arranged, the physio will call you to commence the consultation. 

The consultations are for 30 minutes. During this time the physiotherapist will conduct thorough, detailed questioning to be able to give you a clinical diagnosis. 

The physio will discuss the diagnosis with you and will give you advice to avoid your problem worsening and therefore assist your recovery. In addition, an exercise programme will be given as appropriate.
