Top 5 benefits of Virtual Physiotherapy
All areas of health care, are constantly growing, changing, and truly getting better each and every day. Over the last year, the whole world has faced more challenges than anyone could have predicted, but still, physiotherapy met these challenges head on and pivoted to provide a rarely used, but powerful tool – virtual healthcare. Virtual healthcare has completely changed how, where, and when everyday people can have access to effective care.
But what exactly is “effective care”, and how can you be confident that virtual physiotherapy can deliver it?
There has been a lot of research looking into this topic and the results are in! Virtual physiotherapy is now proven to be EQUALLY as effective as in-person physiotherapy treatment for improving physical function and pain because of an injury. Whether we are talking about a new injury or an older chronic one really doesn’t matter, virtual physiotherapy can be helpful in both cases and can cover anything from sprains and strains, to arthritis, to pre- and post-surgery rehab, and lots of injuries in between.
X-rays, MRIs, and hands-on care are only small pieces of the puzzle when delivering effective care. As Physiotherapists, we can learn so much from the information you tell us – how your injury happened, what movements make you feel better or worse, your past injury and medical history, and so on. All the information you tell us, combined with an assessment of how you move gives us a clear picture on what is causing your pain, and how we can start to make you feel better.
