A SAFE AND SECURE WAY OF GETTING EVIDENCE BASED INJURY MANAGEMENT

Most people’s traditional view of physiotherapy treatment is that it involves “hands on” treatment. In reality, this is only a small portion of what physiotherapists do to assist with injury management. Educating you about your condition, identifying contributing factors from your lifestyle, as well as instigating a structured and tailored exercise program will put you in much more control of your own recovery in the long run.

Core Fitness now offers online physiotherapy service through Tele-Rehab, which has been proven to be as effective as face to face physiotherapy for appropriate injuries and with capable physiotherapists. We use technology that allow secure and confidential video conferences with your physiotherapist.

A Tele-Rehab session involves an assessment of your movement, education and modification of exercise from the comfort of your own home.  If you are sick/quarantined or unable to physically attend your appointment, this is a way to ensure you can continue with your appropriate rehabilitation.

We have software in place that enable you to see your exercise programs that can be incorporated in the video consultations. You do not need to purchase or subscribe to anything for us to deliver these sessions. Our secure and confidential Tele-Rehab software enables us to play pre-recorded demonstrations of assessments and exercises or watch each other on a secure platform.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Tele-Rehab Work?

Tele-rehab is an online video consultation rather than a face-to-face consultation. It is also known as online physiotherapy consultation.

People traditionally think of physiotherapy as being a very hands-on profession, but in fact a lot of it is to do with putting together groups of symptoms to come up with the right diagnosis, which then leads to a rehabilitation plan which can be conveyed through exercise apps and online exercise prescription.

What if I am Not Sure I am Doing the Exercises Correctly Prescribed via Tele-Rehab?
The wonders of modern technology open up a whole world of possibility. After your consultation, our physiotherapists will prescribe suitable narrated exercise videos to you via a medical software.  All the exercise descriptions are very clear and illustrated by video.
