Telehealth Physiotherapy 

Telerehabilitation is the provision of physiotherapy services at a distance using communication technology such as video conferencing. While telerehabilitation and telehealth have been around for over 20 years, it is still considered a new concept. Many of the conditions typically seen in a physiotherapy clinic are now possible to treat using modern technology. In addition the physiotherapists, many other health care professionals are incorporating telehealth and into their practice including doctors, occupational therapists, and dieticians. Research has shown that telerehabilitation assessment and treatment are at least equal to, and in some cases superior to, in-person physiotherapy. 

The benefits to the client include:

  • Convenience and privacy of the appointment in their own home

  • Access to physiotherapy for people in rural and remote locations

  • Eliminate travel time to and from a clinic

  • Being able to see a certain expert who is not in their geographical location

  • Flexible hours

  • The ability to be assessed very quickly post injury

  • Excellent patient satisfaction demonstrated in clinical studies
