“Well-designed telehealth schemes can improve health care access and outcomes, particularly for chronic disease treatment and for vulnerable groups. Not only do they reduce demands on crowded facilities, but they also create cost savings and make the health sector more resilient.” (WHO) [accessed 15/03/20]
If you are unable to attend the clinic for your appointment you may be suitable for a Telehealth consultation.
These are remote consultations to help you keep recovering. Using our PhysiApp which can be on any device including the web browser on your computer.
Our telehealth consultations allow you to get in touch with our chiropractor without having to attend our practice. Telehealth consultations are webcam-based consultation that will take up to 20 minutes for an existing patient or 45 minutes for a New Patient. There is no physical contact or hands-on therapy involved in these consultations.
In this consultation, your practitioner can take a detailed history, conduct an investigation virtually into your condition and send you a referral if any further tests are required. You may then be given a diagnosis and management advice that can include exercise, advice and general management. Prior to the Telehealth consultation you will be asked to download our rehabilitation application, Physiapp, from your Google Play store or the Apple store.
Once the app is downloaded, its really easy to use:
- The chiropractor will start the video call
- The patient will receive an email invitation to join the call

Exercises will include videos so you can do them properly. We’ll also be able to check-in on your progress via the app.
