You would be surprised by the number of manipulations, exercises or stretching that you can do online with the guidance of your physiotherapist. If for any reasons you don’t have the possibility to come to the clinic or receive a home visit from your physio, online video treatment can have a huge impact in keeping your rehabilitation going and your recovery on track with regular video follow ups from your physiotherapist specialised in MSK, Pilates and/or personal training.
Online physio consultation: what should I expect?
You will be in relation with your physio live from their virtual therapy room, who will assess you visually and verbally. A physio video call doesn’t differ much from a clinical appointment and keeps the same process: your physio will first of all take your history if you are a new patient – by asking questions and assessing you verbally and visually. This will help them diagnose the reasons for your issue and what could be the potential solutions to treat it.
If you are a follow up patient, your physio video appointment will start with a summary of what has changed since your last physio session.
Your London MSK physiotherapist will then create a personalised treatment plan and start doing exercises with you. This as well can include advice, feedback and appropriate exercises to start out or modify your current exercise regime if it’s not appropriate. If it is clear that hands on manual therapy is required as the next step, the physiotherapist can program with you a clinical face-to-face follow up appointment or guide you to the appropriate therapist if necessary, who you can see once you can come to the clinic.
What type of MSK conditions can be treated via an online physiotherapy consultation?
Any musculoskeletal pathologies that you would normally book in to ask your physio about can initially be treated via video consultation:
- Back pain
- Sports injury
- Pain management
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee, Ankle, Wrist, Elbow
- Sports physiotherapy
Which results should I expect from an online physiotherapist consultation?
Patients will be given pain education and management strategies as it’s usually done in the first appointments at the clinic, so the session and its efficiency will not be any different on video. Your online MSK physio can also check exercises and progress exercises using the video consults, as well as demonstrate them to help you do them the safest way possible. Techniques are multiple and according to your condition, the physio will teach you various exercises, stretching and mobilisation.
