Virtual Physiotherapy

FAQ

What exactly is Virtual Physiotherapy?

Virtual (or on-line) physiotherapy is the remote delivery of physiotherapy services to patients via video calls. This service is appropriate for both new and existing patients who require physiotherapy.

A registered physiotherapist will connect with you using the internet on a fully secure and privacy-compliant video platform.  It is actually very easy to set up, and it is a great way to make sure you are getting any questions about your condition answered by a reliable, trusted and experienced physiotherapist.

What if I am not tech savvy? What do I need for virtual physiotherapy?

No problem - we are here to help!  We will send you an email with all the instructions on how to access your virtual physiotherapy session.  In order to join a virtual session, you will need a computer, tablet or cell phone with a camera and access to the internet (the stronger connection, the better!).

What do you need from me before starting a session?

  • An emergency contact in case something happens to you during a virtual session (highly unlikely, but we like to be prepared!).
  • An alternate way to contact you (phone number), should our connection be lost during your session.
  • It is helps if you can be in a well-lit space and have enough room to move around so your physiotherapist can evaluate your movement patterns as needed.
