In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, Precision Physio is please to launch online Physio and Exercise Physiology consultations. For those people who are unable to leave their homes, or who can’t make it to our clinics, you can now have consults from the comfort of your own home, via convenient video calls, arranged by us.
Physiotherapy & Exercise Physiology
Here's an overview of what we'll do for you online:
We conduct an initial assessment so we can completely understand what’s bothering you, and get to know your lifestyle and your current activity levels. Your therapist will walk you through a series of relevant movements and tests to help them determine what treatment will be the easiest and most effective for you to do at home.
From here, we get to work on a treatment plan.
Precision Physio’s are skilled in determining what must happen straight away to get rid of your pain and you’ll be amazed how much can be achieved from home. Your treatment is focused on resolving the issue as quickly as possible so you can get back in action.
Once your pain has been resolved, it is crucial to determine why your injury happened in the first place, and whether you’re likely to have other injuries in the future. We figure out why you developed this problem, what is causing the problem and what needs to happen to prevent you from winding up back where you started. Using our Precision Performance Pyramid, we show you the steps to move more, move right and live young, creating a personal home plan to improve your physical performance.
Is There Any Proof Online Consultations Work?
Yes, research shows that online consultations can be just as effective as face-to-face consults. Studies have found no increase in diagnosis error compared to face-to-face consultations, and studies have also shown similar or better outcomes through online consultations.
How Does An Online Consultation Work?
After you have booked your online Physio or Exercise Physiology consultation, we will send you an email containing a link to join your therapist on a secure and private video call, using our approved Telehealth technology. At the time of your appointment, you will need to click the link to join your Precision Physio therapist online.
You can join the session on either a computer with built in camera, or a smart phone with built in camera. From there our therapists will walk you through everything that you need to do in order for us to diagnose your problem, provide relief and start to provide continued care.
We would suggest that when you have your session, you place yourself in a well lit room that has enough space for you to perform some basic exercises in view of the camera. Ideally have a stable camera and wear some lose fitting clothes that will allow us to see the problem areas.
What If I Don't Have Equipment?
It’s not a problem if you don’t have any specific equipment at home, you might be surprised by how much can be achieved with body weight movements only. If you do need equipment of some sort, our therapists will give you suggestions of alternatives based on the common household objects that you do have to hand.
How Do I Book An Online Consultation?
To book an online consultation with either a Physio or Exercise Physiologist, you simply need to call the Precision Physio Customer Support Team on: 02 8607 4000 or you can email us your details and we will call you.
In support of our local communities during the COVID-19 health crisis, Precision Physio is pleased to reduce our fees for online consultations. Initial Consultations last for 40 minutes and cost $80, ongoing follow-up sessions are only $70 for 30 minutes.
