Tailored Recovery at Your Fingertips!
A virtual physiotherapy appointment – what we call ‘Telehrehab’ – is great when you can’t make it to the clinic for an in-person session. Telerehab empowers you to still have a 1-on-1 session with your physiotherapist without leaving your home or office.
Telerehab has many of the same benefits as a face-to-face physiotherapy session. You will work directly with your physio to discuss, assess, and diagnose problems just as if you were in the clinic. Your physiotherapist will help you to manage your condition and provide activities to alleviate symptoms.
Both physiotherapy assessments and follow-up sessions can be done via Telerehab.
During a virtual physiotherapy session, our therapists will:

Log in a few minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you are ready. Your physiotherapist will send you an invitation to join the call at your scheduled appointment time.
