Remote consultations can be a very beneficial way of accessing treatment for those that, for whatever reason, find it difficult to attend in person. They are easy to set up as long as you have a good internet connection. Just as in a clinical setting, the Physiotherapist will take a full history of your condition and then assess your movements with a series of tests. From this they will be able to make an initial diagnosis and provide you with advice, guidance and a home exercise plan. You will be encouraged to asks questions at any time during the sessions.
