Is my injury suitable for treatment via the internet?
Most injuries are suitable for treatment using this method. Feel free to Get In Touch if you are not sure.
How can I be assessed without seeing me in person?
The majority of diagnoses are made through listening to the patient history. In most cases, a clinician can be almost certain of a patient diagnosis from listening to the history alone. The physical assessment may confirm this diagnosis and provide some baseline data.
During your assessment you may be asked to perform certain movements, just as you would in a practice, to aid diagnosis. You can also send photos or videos of injured body parts.
What if i don’t have access to video calling?
Video calling is not a necessity. Our sevices can be provided via email and telephone.
Can I claim my appointment back through my health insurance?
We recommend that you check with your health insurance provider before proceeding with your appointment.
