Telehealth Appointments

Coming soon - Telehealth appointments with our physios.

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 appointment.

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 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).

We can guide you through three options:

  1. Teach you how to self-treat the problem at home.
  2. Determine whether you need hands on treatment in our safe clinic.
  3. Decide whether you need further specialty testing or treatment and organise that referral.

Furthermore, we can refer you for Xrays, MRI, CT scans and Ultrasounds if required.

The cost of a Telehealth appointment is half the price of a regular in-clinic treatment at $80 per session which would need to be paid prior to the scheduled appointment.

As this service falls under our core practice, you will be able to receive a rebate under your private health insurance cover.

Our team will help you navigate through this process.

How to schedule a Telehealth appointment:

You can schedule your interest for a Telehealth appointment by sending us a request by email to treat@thephysiojoint.com.au and a member of our team will get back to you.

PLEASE NOTE:

You will need to create a free account with Zoom click here, and you can chat to us via your web browser or by downloading the app on your computer, tablet or phone prior to the scheduled appointment.

You will receive link / invitation to proceed with the appointment.
