VIRTUAL VIDEO APPOINTMENTS: ADVICE AND TREATMENT TO EASE YOUR PAIN.
In response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are offering online appointments with our experienced Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors. This is in addition to our normal face to face services in clinic. Online services include a completely free initial consultation carried out online, and additionally virtual assessment and treatment appointments (charged at £35).
What are virtual free consultations?
Freedom Care Clinics free virtual initial consultations are a great place to explore whether we can help with your symptoms or concerns. The consultations take place using online video calling software such as skype, zoom, facetime or whatsapp. During the consultation you will have the opportunity to discuss symptoms or concerns with an expert physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor. Your clinician will take time to listen to you and ask relevant questions to ascertain whether simple advice and guidance will be best suited, or whether further investigation and treatment intervention may be indicated. Just call the clinic to organise, or book online for a free consultation and notify us that you would like the appointment carried out remotely.
What are virtual video consultations?
Our video consultations provide the opportunity to speak to a physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor regarding any pain symptoms you have from the safety of your home. Just like a regular face-to-face consultation, your practitioner will take a detailed case history to determine the cause of your symptoms. Should these be muscular, joint or skeletal related, you will be offered a tailored plan of stretches and exercises which you can perform safely at home to ease your pain.
Your practitioner will carefully demonstrate and observe the exercises via live video call to ensure you have the correct technique. After the appointment, you will receive a link to an online video to help you recap on your prescribed exercises at any time.
Who are virtual video consultations for?
- Back and neck pain or aches
- Shoulder pain and stiffness
- Hip and buttock pain
- Tight muscles
- Pinched nerves
- Repetitive Strain Injury
- Ergonomic advice (desk setup) for your home desk
What to expect?
If you are a new patient, we are offering free 15-minute initial consultation to discuss whether a virtual video assessment and treatment is likely to be beneficial for you. Or perhaps whether a face to face appointment in clinic may be more useful.
Existing patients, we are happy for you to book straight in for a video appointment with your usual practitioner. They will have access to your medical notes to ensure you are getting the most suitable advice and treatment.
What technology will you use?
We are happy to carry out virtual appointments via Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp Video Call, Facetime or Facebook Video Call.
