What is a telephysio or pilates session like?
An online physiotherapy session enables you to have the same interaction with a therapist remotely that you would in the clinic, with 1:1 discussion with your therapist and guidance and feedback for your individualized therapy treatment. Just as we do in-clinic, we’ll conduct a thorough history and lead you through a physical assessment. We will then guide you through some management options including self-massage and mobilisations, appropriate stretches and direct you through a home exercise program tailored to meet your injury. At the conclusion of your session we will provide you with a digital exercise program that will be emailed to you with video, reps and sets and images. We also include management option and intervention for the ongoing care and management of your condition between sessions.
