As physiotherapists we work very much with how the body moves. This means we are able to take advantage of magical means and use online remote consultations to continuing seeing our patients. Sarah Babbs and I have been working with a few people already over different video platforms and have found it to be a great medium. Patients have reported back saying how helpful they have found the sessions.
Rather than being in the same room as our patients, we can see you over the internet, rather like GPs are doing with their Q-Doc service. We are able to take a good history, hear your story of the problems you are facing and then decide what examination needs to be done. Even in clinic without putting our hands on you, most of our assessment is done looking at how you move, carry yourself and how you tell us that feels. Over the screen we can look at your strength and range of movements by clearly instructing you. We can work out a solution together and, as you already know, exercises to strengthen, move and gain confidence are the mainstay of treatment. We can therefore help you find the solutions, demonstrate the best movement and exercises and watch as you learn how to work with them. We can then follow this up later as we would normally do in clinic.
Also I can offer one to one, one to two Pilates and possibly a video Pilates group if there was interest.
Please do get in touch with the clinic if you would like to discuss the remote consultation option or if you need general advice.
