In pain? 3 reasons why you should choose online physiotherapy!

In pain? 3 reasons why you should choose online physiotherapy!

Online physiotherapy is a weird concept for anyone to wrap their heads around. One of the most common questions asked is ‘how does online physiotherapy work?’. And it’s true that traditionally when we think of physiotherapy, we think of massage and joint manipulation. So how does online physiotherapy work?

The truth is, physiotherapy has changed over the last decade as we have adapted our techniques, based on the evidence available. Physiotherapy used to be dominated by techniques like massage and manipulation as they give short term benefit. The problem is, these techniques rarely result in lasting change. So then, what does?

The one thing that comes up time and time again as being effective is exercise and load management/injury advice. Guess what? You don’t need to be present with somebody to prescribe appropriate exercises and give sound advice! This is how online physiotherapy is feasible, added to this by the ever-expanding technological advances, making videoconferencing easy and flexible. So why should you choose online physiotherapy?

Reason #1 – It’s more personal!

I know it sounds strange, that one reason for you to see someone over video-conference is that it’s more personal, but let me elaborate. The face-time videoconferencing sessions are very similar to face-to-face without the touch component. Your therapist still hears your story, they understand your exact problem, they want to help YOU.

What really sets online apart is that after the initial video-conference, you have access to your therapist whenever, thanks to in-app messaging. Instead of waiting for one appointment a week, you can literally ask a question, as you think of them. You can video an exercise and shoot it through, to check if you’re doing it right. Heck, you can ask them how their day has been!

Reason #2 – It’s more affordable

Who doesn’t want more affordable physiotherapy! At Click Physiotherapy we don’t do cheap, we do quality at affordable prices. The reason we can pull this off, is because there are minimal overhead costs. 

Think about it, we don’t have a building to pay rent, or lots of equipment to buy. That means we can cut down on the cost of physiotherapy, without compromising our standard of care. In fact, we only hire physiotherapists who are masters trained – meaning they have extra university training in treating musculoskeletal injuries.

Reason #3 – It’s super accessible

Have you ever needed a physiotherapist when you had a knee injury skiing in Japan? Well now you can take us with you! The benefit of online physiotherapy is that if you have internet connection, you have connection with your physiotherapist. Now distance doesn’t have to be a limitation to you receiving the quality care that you deserve. 

This also works for those who have busy schedules, or mums with young children that don’t get the luxury of leaving the home whenever they need. With online physiotherapy all you need is a mobile phone to get connected to a physiotherapist.

The bottom line:

Online physiotherapy can provide many benefits that you simply won’t get with traditional physiotherapy. I don’t think it’s for everyone, if you’re the type of person who needs a massage with every treatment, maybe massage therapy might be down your ally?
