The Physio Joint is back open for business however we are ONLY doing telehealth treatments until we feel it is safe to return to business as usual.

We want to see COVID-19 eradicated. We feel the best way to do this is with no face-to-face treatments in the practice at present. This severely hurts our business but we think it is the best thing we can for our community.

Should you require treatment, we can provide very high quality treatments over video conferencing which will enable you to self-treat appropriately.

COVID-19 has presented us with an unprecedented challenge.

Australians are being asked to take measures that we’ve never had to before - things like cancelling travel, not going to concerts restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs and general social distancing.

If you are hurting or are in pain and are in self-isolation or would prefer to minimise contact in any way, we have designed a way you can get help fast and in the safety of your home via a Telehealth treatment.

Telehealth uses digital video technology on your computer, tablet or phone to receive treatment from our physio. Our practice is using Zoom which is available as an app as a FREE download.

Since your GP is most likely overloaded with other more pressing matters, we are well placed to fill the gap this will create. It is safe and effective, and our physios are trained to deliver Telehealth treatment consultations. Our physios have the right musculoskeletal skills to assess and triage any spinal pain you have that is likely of a musculoskeletal origin. (Pains from muscles and joints, ligaments and spinal discs).
