WHAT IS IT?
With life being so frantic, sometimes it can be very hard to commit a consistent time every week, and to find the time for the commute and appointments themselves. Through video conference calls and online programming through our mobile app, we are able to provide rehabilitation and strength and conditioning services wherever you are in the world. Using only your mobile, you can have access to your physiotherapist/S&C coach and their individualised program whenever you need.
WHAT DOES AN INITIAL TELEHEALTH CONSULT INVOLVE?
An initial assessment starts before the consultation, with completion of our new patient form, that is sent well in advance. The therapist will start by asking a series of questions to further clarify your answers and start creating a provisional diagnosis. For there the therapist will demonstrate certain movements and tests, to further narrow down the true causes of your symptoms. After this assessment, the therapist will explain what is going on and the best possible way to get you back to your best and keep you there.
The patient is then directed through a series of self-treatment methods to help reduce pain and symptoms. An individualised, home exercise program is then created through our mobile app, with a set up link sent to the patient’s email. The patient can then upload videos of them performing their exercises/ gym sessions, allowing the therapist to view and provide feedback.
Real-time telerehabilitation for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions has been shown to be effective and comparable to standard practice (Cottrell et al., 2017).
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
All you need is a device with a webcam and microphone so that you can connect over video call. A link to join the call will be sent prior to your appointment
WILL I NEED TO DO ANYTHING ON THE CALL?
You may be asked to stand up and perform certain movements and you may be coached through some exercises, so wear suitable clothing - as you would a regular physio appointment
ONLINE STRENGTH & CONDITIONING
Here at Game Time, all our physiotherapists are also experienced strength and conditioning coaches. Through the same software and systems we use for our rehab, we offer online programming for the general population and athletes of all levels.
Whether your initial consultation is in person or via video, we have a proven track record of helping our clients reach new heights in their performance and athletic development.
