Virtual physiotherapy sessions: how, why, what do I need to do? So many questions, I can answer them to make it easier for you :-)
Virtual sessions have their limitation and are not suited for all cases. They are useful, however, in ensuring continuous progress and improving function.
I advise virtual appointments in case of:
Acute musculoskeletal injuries like an ankle sprain, back pain or pelvic pain with or without radiation
Sports-related injuries e.g. from running or biking
Lifestyle-related discomforts like pain with lifting, standing, walking, cleaning or gardening ( soon we will be able to clean our gardens)
Work-related discomforts associated with your not-so ergonomic space at home
Pelvic floor dysfunctions like pain and incontinence in women
Over an interactive video session, I should be able to:
Assess any new pain or discomfort with complete history, range of motion, strength and functional assessment.
Educate you about the condition and treatment.
Assess posture and movement to suggest some stretches, strength and self-release techniques.
Plan exercise progression of your already existing exercise program.
Correct form for already prescribed exercises with the help of verbal cues.
I am available for a virtual treatment session, please visit the LifeTherapies website to book and select e-consult with me (Jagisha). Note: You need a device with an internet connection. The device can be a tablet/ iPad, computer with a webcam or a smartphone.
