Traditional Face to Face Consultations Resume for Acute Injuries

Acute injuries may now be seen again through traditional face to face consultations at Offshore Physio Torquay. Physiotherapy clinics continue to be deemed as an essential service as per Federal Government Advice and the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

Whilst we are happy to consult patients with acute injures at our clinic, we have put in place a screening criteria for additional health and safety. This criteria will be discussed with you when you make your appointment. We continue to encourage the elderly or those who are immuno-compromised to utilise our Telehealth services.

At this stage we are unable to give you a date for the resumption of our onsite Exercise Rehab Classes. Our online Exercise classes will continue for the foreseeable future.

ONLINE TELEHEALTH CONSULTATIONS

What is Telehealth?

Online Telehealth Consultations @ Offshore Physio Torquay involve a video consultation via the phone /internet to conduct an assessment, diagnosis and treatment.  All you need is a smart phone, ipad or laptop computer with internet access. Research has shown Telehealth to be just as effective as traditional in rooms treatments.  Whilst this will be a new concept for many of you, our physiotherapists are skilled in listening, assessing / diagnosing and implementing an appropriate treatment plan without the need for you to come into the clinic. If your physio feels you require an x-ray or scan, we can organise this for you as well. If your physio needs to refer you to your GP, this will still happen. All you need to do is make an appointment by your normal means and our staff will take care of the rest.   The set up process is simple and we will talk you through it at your own pace.
