Telehealth Physiotherapy Grande Prairie

Telehealth Physiotherapy Grande Prairie

Telehealth is the remote delivery of physiotherapy services through the telephone or the internet. Since most of us already have access to the technology required to participate in Telehealth, we can take advantage of this accessibility as it allows patients in remote areas or those with mobility constraints to receive care without the hurdles of transportation, reducing the need to travel and thereby saving time and reducing associated costs. And it also minimizes exposure to COVID-19.
From the comfort of your own home, you can have access to your physiotherapist.

How does it work?

You will need a phone, tablet or a computer with a microphone, camera and connection to the internet. Once you book an appointment, you will be provided with an online link through email or text message. Clicking on the link will take you to a virtual clinic with video and audio feed from your physiotherapist. It is that simple.

Am I a suitable candidate for Telehealth?

If you are in pain from a neuromusculoskeletal condition and are not able to meet the day-to-day demands of your life, Telehealth offers you a means to access care that is not otherwise available due to accessibility or physical distancing rules. Other conditions that could potentially be treated through Telehealth include dizziness, concussion, TMJ and pelvic health. If you are above the age of 60 and/or have other health conditions that put you in a high-risk category for COVID-19 or simply wish to minimize your community exposure, you can benefit from Telehealth.

Is it safe?

The platform used by Junction Point Physical Therapy and Health Centre does not request or store any personal information. Communication between the physiotherapist and patient is end-to-end encrypted. No video recordings are made.

What can I expect during a session?

Your physiotherapist will ask you questions regarding your symptoms and functional limitations. You may also discuss any concerns that you have related to your Neuromusculoskeletal system. You will receive advice from your physiotherapist on how to mitigate your symptoms and improve your day-to-day function. You will also receive an exercise program with instructions on how to perform them. Needless to say, a hands-on physical exam is not possible in the virtual clinic. However, during this COVID-19 pandemic, Telehealth offers the best way forward by providing care while at the same time meeting physical distancing rules. Furthermore, telehealth fosters better patient engagement by enabling more frequent touchpoints and easier follow-up, ultimately promoting a more proactive approach to personal health management.
