Telehealth physiotherapy is a form of healthcare delivery where physiotherapy services are provided remotely using telecommunication technology such as video conferencing, phone calls, or messaging platforms. This approach has become increasingly popular over the past few years, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic when in-person consultations were not always possible or desirable.
Telehealth physiotherapy can be effective for a variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries, neurological conditions, and chronic pain. It can be used for assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing management of patients. Patients can receive expert advice, guidance, and instruction on exercises and rehabilitation techniques from the comfort of their own homes
One of the main benefits of telehealth physiotherapy is that it can be more convenient and accessible for patients, particularly those who live in remote areas or have mobility issues. It can also reduce the need for travel and waiting times, and may be more cost-effective than traditional in-person consultations.
