Telehealth refers to health care delivery where participants are separated by distance and technology is used to overcome that distance. At Ovens Valley Physio & Pilates we offer physiotherapy telehealth services in the way of online video consultations, where we can provide a convenient and cost effective alternative to the more traditional in-clinic consultations.
Online video consultations can help during times where there are barriers to coming in to see us in the clinic, such as distance, time and cost. These consultations are offered at a discounted rate (compared to in-clinic physiotherapy consultations) and delivery can be tailored depending on individual needs (for example if you do not have access to a computer or smartphone, our therapists are also able to telephone you).
There are a range of conditions that can be assessed and advised on through this type of consultation, including:
Physiotherapy online video consultations are available Monday-Friday, with some availability after work hours. If you are unsure whether this type of appointment is suitable for your situation, please get in touch via our contact page.
Several private health funds are now providing benefits for individual (one on one) physiotherapy telehealth consultations. Please check with your health fund regarding your cover.
