To facilitate the continuation of my professional practice being open and available to people in a more flexible way I have set up an online physiotherapy service.
From my experience as a physiotherapist the most common and important questions from patients are usually:
What is wrong with me?
Is it serious?
How long will it take to get better?
What can I do to help?
During an online consultation, a thorough history is taken, and these questions will be answered and a clear plan going forward will be communicated and agreed upon. I have always felt that the main role of a physiotherapist should be likened to a facilitator to enable and empower people to take a leading role in their own rehabilitation and management of their condition. The work done in the clinic is only a small part of the overall process of recovering from an injury or returning to your sport or normal level of activity.
The online platform will be on an application called Rehab Guru. To obtain access you can either go straight from a link on your web browser or you can download the free app on a smartphone. I will also have a Skype platform available if this is preferable.
The fee for an online assessment will be €50. This will include the online assessment, a clear plan in an email with videos/photos of specific exercises, and a follow up email if you have any further questions regarding your plan or ongoing progressions.
