Unable to get to clinic because you are travelling, concerned about Coronavirus, stuck at home for any reason, or just need some in depth advice to progress your recovery?
TeleHealth Sessions are for you!
Yes, if you’re in pain, but can’t leave the house, I can still help!
I’m always happy to have a quick advice chat – book a free 10 minute call anytime. I can’t diagnose or offer specific treatment advice on such a short call, but some assessment of the seriousness of your problem and some basic advice can be so helpful. It can also help reduce the burden of our very busy NHS. If your first inclination is to ring your GP for an assessement, give me a call first. We can then decide if you should perhaps book a telehealth session, see your GP or go into another professional setting.
But what if you are new to me and I don’t have your full history? What if you need a followup session to review and progress your treatment? The great thing about modern technology is that video calls allow us to do all sorts of things over the phone that we would normally do in your appointment.
Quite a bit of what we do in your appointments isn’t about the hands-on treatment – it’s about helping you manage the pain and the injury through advice and coaching, exercise prescription and pain management ideas.
Some of the things we can do in a telehealth session include:
- Active Examinations
- Clinical Catching Up
- Exercise and Rehab
- Self Treatment Advice
- Nutrition Support
- Lifestyle Change Support
- Stress Management and Sleep /Insomnia Support
Just like in a regular in person session, I use your history and what you’ve told me to craft the kinds of things I need to check in an examination. Using a live video link (using Physitrack, Whatsapp or Messenger) I can ask you to perform a variety of movements and tests that help inform clinical decisionmaking about how to proceed with your care.
Just like at the beginning of every session, we can catch up on how you are feeling, what movements are best for you, what is causing you trouble, and discuss any changing symptoms (for better or worse). This can give me a wealth of information about how you are progressing with your treatment and what kinds of things I should look for in my examination.
Nearly all of my clients have benefitted from me providing virtual exercise and rehab using Physitrack. Based on how you are doing, these exercises can be adjusted and amended to speed your progress on the fly. All you have to do is log in and see your changes!
I can advise you on how to care for yourself from today, including pain reduction strategies and ways to improve your mobility. Self treatment techniques can be explained and demonstrated, and I can explain what to avoid and why. There’s a lot you can do to help yourself today, even if you can’t be seen in person.
If you are not able to access your usual shop, you might find it tricky to stay on track with your anti inflammatory diet. I can help with guidance and advice on how to modify your nutrition within your means. I have also arranged a discount for my clients at The Natural Dispensary to make any supplement needs more affordable.
I’m a health coach, and making changes to incorporate exercise and dietary changes can be challenging for some! I can provide troubleshooting and support to ensure you stay firmly on track in a time that is quite daunting.
Stressful times can exacerbate your pain and tamper with your mental health. I can support you with stress management sessions by providing mindfulness based stress management techniques and coaching spport. I’m also a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist for Insomnia and I can help you get the sleep you need and avoid long term insomnia problems that can develop from tossing and turning all night.
When you book a telehealth session, you’ll get an email confirmation with instructions a link to your own personal video conference. Just click the link at your session time and I’ll see you there!
These sessions cost £30.
