Online consultations allow you to consult with one of our expert physiotherapists without having to leave your home or workplace. Our highly skilled physiotherapists will provide guidance and clarity on your injury, help you get out of pain and set you up with a detailed plan to get you back to what you love doing.
We recognise that you won’t be receiving hands-on treatment for your injury, like you would in the clinic, but we are 100% confident that we can help you achieve your goals without it.
75% of the people that come and see us in the clinic don't need much, or any, hands on treatment to feel better again. We're all about long term results, and we know that specific exercise implementation is the long term key!
Your private online sports physiotherapy sessions are conducting directly though our medical software called Cliniko, which provides world class service.
The sessions are totally encrypted and pass all the Australian Privacy Principles standards (as well as European and American standards too).
When you book your consultation, you will receive an email with a link to 'join meeting'.
At the time of your consultation, simply click the link, and once the practitioner is ready and has started the meeting, you will be live and the consult can begin- It's that easy.
We request that you set up in a quiet room, with enough space to do some simple movements to demonstrate your current injury and capacity, and do some simple exercise.
Please wear similar clothes that you would normally wear to an in-clinic physiotherapy consultation. Shorts and a singlet are perfect. Ideally, the therapist would like to view the joint or body part in question.
