As a conscientious and caring physio I made the decision to temporarily close Ashbrooke Therapies Clinic and cease face to face consultations. This, I felt was the safest and most appropriate action to take to protect you as my clients, but also the wider community and myself.
However, as a forward-thinking individual and one who continues to care about helping others, I have launched a new service to enable me to offer YOU personalised physio and rehabilitation from the comfort of YOUR own home or workplace………VirtuPhysio!
You may wonder how this can work or how it can be effective, however the evidence is strong!
I have looked at the research and the outcomes are extremely positive….. Early intervention of an injury or flare up of a chronic issue, with a Personalised, Self-Management Programme carried out at home, has shown to improve symptoms, pain and dysfunction 10 fold, than no intervention.
This is great to hear!
So, with my 13 years of experience as a musculoskeletal physio and the availability of great technology Ashbrooke Therapies is leads the way in the field of Virtual Physio Treatment.
Next Step – The Consultation
Using Zoom Video software and my own assessment tools, I can offer a 30 min consultation for £15, which will involve:
1. Detailed and effective questioning to ascertain a full history of your injury or issue
2. Visual observation of your area of concern, requiring you follow some prompted movement patterns
From this I can devise your personalised exercise plan, with tailored advice on postural adaptation, use of alternative pain management strategies.
I use an advance exercise software (Physiotec), which allows me to build you a tailored home exercise programme, using clear images and videos. This will be emailed directly to you or text to your phone for easy access.
What do I require from you to prepare for your appointment…….?
Firstly. I will email or text over a link to Zoom, which will state your appointment time.
You can Sign up for Free here: www.zoom.us or you can download the app if you wish to carry out your consultation via your mobile
Sign into Zoom via app or laptop/tablet via the link sent a few minutes before the designated time…. You can even wait in the virtual waiting room!
I will be with you for your appointment time
• Wearing clothing that you can move easily in
• Ensure that you have a quiet area to discuss your concern
* If you're using your mobile telephone in the video consultation, think about where you can position it to enable me to view you whilst carrying out a physical activity. Alternatively, you can ask a family member to hold your phone to assist you.
