How Does Physiotherapy Online Work?
Starting your physiotherapy journey online with Movement Laboratory is straightforward and designed for your convenience. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to access our expert physiotherapist online:
After booking, you’ll receive a condition form to fill out before your session. Take your time to provide detailed information. This helps our physiotherapists understand your condition better, allowing them to ask more targeted questions during the consultation. In some cases, you might be asked to send photos of your injury before the call.
Ensure you have a stable internet connection and a device capable of video calls, like a smartphone, tablet, or computer. The specific software or app required for the session will be communicated to you in advance.
Find a quiet, private space where you can move freely without interruptions. Have any relevant medical records or reports handy. Wear comfortable clothing that allows for easy movement and visibility of the area being treated.
Your physiotherapist will assess your condition, discuss your symptoms, and observe your movements. Based on this, they’ll provide tailored management solutions, exercises, and techniques to help in your recovery.
If your condition requires specialist attention, we’ll refer you to the appropriate healthcare provider. Importantly, if we can’t assist you, we won’t charge for the consultation.
Remember, our goal at Movement Laboratory is to make your online physiotherapy experience as effective and seamless as possible. The preparation you do before the call is crucial in maximising the treatment and management of your injury.
