Online Video Consultations
why choose online video consultations?
Maybe you are not ready to see me for a face to face treatment or you have an underlying health condition that puts you at higher risk of COVID-19, or you might live with someone that has an underlying health condition and are having to minimise your contact with people or shielding. If this is the case then online video consultations are designed for you.
How does it work?
If it is your first consultation with me then I will send you an intake form to complete and return to me before your appointment. The form will have questions about your medical history and the presenting problem that you need help with. The initial online appointment will be an hour where we will discuss your problem including a visual assessment, after which I can give appropriate advice on how you can self manage the problem. This may include strengthening exercises and stretches to help with your symptoms as well as how to use hot or cold packs to speed and support up your recovery.
Do I need to download a program to see you for an online video consultation?
Although you will need internet access you do not need to download a separate program to have an online video consultation. I use a software called Telehealth which is designed for therapists and dedicated for this purpose. I will send you a link which will allow you to connect to the video appointment.
I have seen you before, do I still need to book an hour consultation?
If you have seen me within a year then you may not need to have an hour unless you would prefer or need the extra time, and we can do a 30 min appointment instead.
