Telehealth is a virtual online service which will allow you to remotely enjoy your Osteo sessions in the comfort of your own home via a face to face video call with your therapist.
People traditionally think of an Osteopath as being a very hands-on profession, but in fact a lot of it is to do with taking a thorough case history and going through an assessment that helps us work out the true cause of your symptoms. From all the information that we gather we can then set out a goal specific rehabilitation plan which will be conveyed through joint and tissue mobilisations and graded exposure to load exercises that helps us reduce your pain and get you back doing what you love most.
There is actually a lot more that can be done online with Osteopathic consultations than people think and it makes it a really viable way for people to make sure they’re doing the right thing for their injury.
We will provide you with the most up to date exercise rehabilitation interventions that contribute to positive long term outcomes from the comfort your own home!
What you will need:
- A stable internet connection
- A mobile device (laptop, tablet or phone)
- A small space so that you can perform your exercises with supervision and guidance from Mario and a yoga mat if you prefer one
- Some basic pieces of equipment (foam roller would be great, a resistance band or massage balls, a chair and a dumbbell and/or kettlebell if you have one)
How it works?
To begin an Osteopathy session, we will send you a link for a ‘Zoom meeting’. All you have to do is click on this link or copy and paste it into your browser, and join the meeting using computer audio, and you’ll see Mario on the other end. It’s super easy!
You and Mario will spend the first few minutes recapping any new developments since your most recent session – or if you are new to us, assessing your capabilities. The next 30 minutes will be spent going through making corrections and progressions as needed to continue challenging your body, and the last 10-15 minutes discussing the plan before your next session to keep pushing you forward towards your goal.
Who is the ideal candidate for Telehealth?
Telehealth is the perfect option for anyone who is in too much pain and discomfort to leave their homes at the moment. Regular Telehealth sessions from home maintaining exercise, including strength training is critical and vital to your body’s rehabilitation and with continued support from us using Telehealth you will soon be strong enough to come in for physical sessions.
Telehealth is also ideal for anyone who don’t wish to leave their homes at this current time or is working from home due to Covid-19, but still wishes to continue on with their rehabilitation journey and progress.
Telehealth is also a good option for those who work late or travel often. It means that you can keep up with your treatment plan without having to travel to the clinic.
Telehealth puts you in control of your health, with your Osteopath’s help and guidance over the call – you will gain invaluable lessons on how you can keep healthy and learn exercises from your own home which you will be able to carry out initially under Mario’s guidance and supervision and with time on your own.
