What to Expect from you Online Physiotherapy Consultation:
Many, many questions…!
You’ll start by setting the scene and explaining what’s been going on and the symptoms you’re getting. This helps the Physiotherapist to gather facts about you and your condition. It also sets the baseline to measure progress over the coming days and weeks. You can compare how you have been to how you are. Examples of some questions:
- What’s been going on?
- What did it start?
- What makes it worse or what helps to alleviate pain (for example)?
- General health questions
Movement and Assessment
You need to show how you’re moving, particularly around the area you’re having trouble with. This helps check your range of movement and starts to identify where you’re struggling and where you start to feel discomfort. All of this helps the Physiotherapist to determine what advice to give you, and the treatment and exercises needed.
All of the above helps to identify the problem areas, which informs what solutions will help. The Physiotherapist will provide an explanation and there’s the opportunity for you to ask questions. You’ll be taken through movements and exercises that will help manage the condition or any treatment that you need.
Is There Anything Stopping you from Doing your Exercises?
Have a think about what’s coming up for you over the days and weeks to check you can commit as much as possible to the exercises and treatment process. With the best will in the world, it can still be difficult to do all of what’s asked of you, particularly if you’ve got holidays coming up.
Short and Long Term Goals
Knowing where you’re headed, what you want to achieve, and having a timeline or deadline to work towards can be great for your motivation. It can be as simple as being able to put on your shoes without any pain, through to wanting to participate in a sporting competition.
You’ll receive a summary of the discussion during the consultation.
Exercises – Through an App
You’ll get access to any exercises suggested in your consultation through an app, called PhysiApp. After your appointment, you’ll receive an email with a code in it, which gives you access to your personalised program.
Do you need a Follow-up Appointment?
Depending on what physio support package you’ve chosen, during your initial appointment, you’ll schedule follow-ups with the Physiotherapist. These appointments will give you the opportunity to discuss your progress and if there are any changes needed to be made to the advice given, or exercises you’re doing.
