CORONAVIRUS: Video Consultations Offered…..
Rolling and moving with the changing Government information, the physiotherapy service here at North East Physio continues to offer support through this Covid-19 challenge. Primarily ALL assessments will be done via video or telephone. Face to face sessions may be later carried out if deemed necessary to help improve outcomes and avoid unnecessary admittance to hospital.
A ‘remote physiotherapy consultation’ i.e. video or telephone assessment will include the normal question/ history taking element of the assessment as it would be face to face. Adding the video element allows the physiotherapist to have a look at your movement patterns and run through and observe some tests too which can add a little extra information to the assessment and help give tailored advice to you.
- a Video call can be offered containing assessment with visual guidance and include demonstrations of advice and exercises (£30) – 40-45mins
- a Telephone assessment with advice and guidance and exercises (£25) – Approx 30-40 minutes
Please call the clinic and arrange a ‘Remote’ Consultation by telephone at a date and time to suit you and I can assess and advise to keep you fit, healthy and happy during this stretch of ‘Social Distancing/ isolation’.
Most importantly though….look after yourself and make healthy decisions based on the latest Government/ Public health advice. Find something you enjoy and keep active wherever you can safely at home or in your garden and out in open space. Tip…..Remember to try and avoid jumping into new activity and exercises too quickly as your body may kick back with niggles and aches in physiological revolt!!!….
