At VanCity Physio, we believe physiotherapy should be accessible to everyone, no matter where they’re based or the mobility challenges they face. That’s why we’re proud to offer our innovative online TelePhysio service to our clients.
Online Physiotherapy… Really?
Absolutely! We believe, with careful observation and a little creativity, TelePhysio allows us to assess your symptoms, observe your range of motion and diagnose the issue. Conducted via PhysiApp, our physiotherapists will meet with you remotely – whether you’re at home, at the office, or simply in too much pain to get out of bed. We can offer treatment and rehabilitation options, or refer you for an in-person consultation when a more hands-on approach is required. Not located near our Vancouver location? No problem! We are happy to refer you to a trusted physiotherapist that’s convenient to your location.
How Effective is TelePhysio?
Great question! Extensive research has been carried out into the effectiveness of TelePhysio and the results have been hugely encouraging. The American Physical Therapy Association describes TelePhysio as follows:
“TeleHealth is an appropriate model of service delivery for the profession of physical therapy when provided in a manner consistent with Association position, standards, guidelines, policies, procedures and Standards of Practice for Physical Therapy.”
It’s a rapidly growing field in Canadian physiotherapy and one we believe will help many of our clients to get moving once again.
