Online Health Consultations
Josh is an expert in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of pain and injuries related to the muscles and joints in the body. Most of what we do in your chiropractic appointments isn’t about the hands-on treatment – it’s about helping you manage the pain and the injury through advice and coaching, exercise prescription and pain management ideas etc.
How Can an Online Appointment Help Me?
Technology is making all aspects of life more efficient. Healthcare is no different. A Telehealth appointment is for people who are unable to attend the clinic. Through a phonecall or a video consultation we are still able to take a detailed health history, assess our patient’s movements, reassure them, tell our patients what they can or cannot do for the pain, guide them through rehabilitation exercise plans AND very importantly – hold them accountable and keep them on track!
Research has shown that up to 80% of clinician visits can be provided online with comparable clinical outcomes.
What to Expect From Your Telehealth Consultation.
Helping you get set up
For the online consultation all you will need is a laptop or computer with a camera, and a reliable internet connection!
At the time of your appointment, your practitioner will call you on your phone and provide very simple instructions on how to access the video link. If you’d prefer to use your smart phone for the video link (instead of your laptop/computer), please download the “ZOOM cloud meetings” app in advance.
Once your appointment is booked, your confirmation email will also confirm the above steps.
History and Diagnosis
In your online health consultation, your chiropractor will take a detailed history of your symptoms, provide a diagnosis, educate you about the problem and provide advice. They will be able to prescribe or demonstrate a tailored exercise programme to help resolve the issue. On top of this they will guide you on how long it will take until you feel better.
A Tailored Exercise Programme
During your consultation, we are able to create a personalised care plan that consists of various stretches, exercises and care guidance for you to follow at home to help reduce your symptoms and fix the underlying problem. Exercises are provided in video format to show how they should be performed.
Initial appointments can last up to 60 minutes (but may be shorter). You will have a chance to email the practitioner over the following days should you have any follow-up questions. Alternatively, they may recommend a follow-up Telehealth appointment (around 20 mins) a few days later as your condition improves. This allows them to update the advice and exercises so you continue to see progress.
