Virtual Physiotherapy Appointments
Updated: Jun 28, 2020
Book a Virtual Physiotherapy consultation and get a treatment plan from the safety of your home. Our Peterborough based physiotherapists can make a diagnosis and advise treatments all online.
What is virtual Physiotherapy?
We can provide Physiotherapy consultations and treatment plans in the safety of your home. UPL Physiotherapists can make a diagnosis by listening to your story and asking some key questions. We can complete the physical examination by using video communication and then formulate a treatment plan with you.
How can you provide treatment without hands on?
Physiotherapy treatment does not only have to include a hands-on approach. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic regulations we are unable to provide a face to face consultation service at present. However, we are able to offer other treatment methods and our professional advice such as:
Interactive exercise plans delivered to your inbox,
Changes in your environment,
Advice on heat/cold packs,
Pain management strategies.
There is strong evidence that the use of personalised exercises, posture adaptations, pain management strategies, Pilates is highly beneficial for many clients seeking help.
Will this be covered under my insurance?
BUPA and AXAPP cover this under your Physiotherapy claims. Other insurance companies may not cover and some are still deciding. If in doubt you need to call your insurance company.
I do not have video on my phone, can I still do the virtual appointments?
This does not matter there is a conference system called Zoom which can be used on iPad, Tablets, PC’s and Laptops. If you do not have this, we can do a telephone conversation and communicate by this method and talk through things more.
What if I am unsure with the treatment how can I get in touch?
We will be happy to assist in-between appointments to ensure you feel supported at this time. We will provide you with a mobile number where someone can get back to you within a few hours.
How much will this cost?
If you are currently under Physiotherapy treatment and need follow up appointments this will be £30 and will be approximately 20-30 minutes.
If you have a new complaint we will need to do a new assessment and this will be £40 and will be approximately 30-45 minutes.
At UPL our Ethos is to provide you with a Professional Friendly service and treat you as part of one of our family. This will continue but in the safety of your home until we can meet you face to face once again.
