What is Telehealth?
-Telehealth is online physiotherapy.
-It’s the future of healthcare.
-In this instance it allows runners who don’t have access to a running specific physiotherapist to have access to one no matter where they live in the world.
Inappropriate referrals where hands on management is preferable or medical investigation is required will be told immediately. Dane will only work with patients he believes he will be able to help.
Runners that succeed with telehealth are just like those that succeed in the normal clinical setting, they are the patients that listen to education and comply with their exercises. These patient’s positively change their body.
Through thorough screening, questioning, acquiring necessary imaging and a video conference call a preliminary diagnosis can be made. From here patient’s will be educated on why they are still not better, what they need to do, how long the injury should take, what to still avoid, what cross training or running they can still do (if appropriate- Dane wants runners running), how to settle pain and promote healing and what to do exercise and rehabilitation wise. This will all be done personally with Dane weekly through PhysiApp.
Further online consultations are more often than not required to confirm diagnosis, monitor progress, fine tune exercise technique and ensure compliance.
For pricing and/or further questions about whether telehealth is a good fit for you, please contact us at; email@example.com.
Anyway, here’s to fun pain free running!
