How does Tele-rehab by Jlinks Physiotherapy work?
During your Tele-rehab sessions, we complete a specialist assessment and analysis of your movement and function by asking you to show us. Together we will then plan your treatment , which may include; exercises, self-management techniques and recommendations. We will then work with you regularly to progress your treatment plan as far as possible. Your Physiotherapist will be able to watch you during your appointment and will then provide expert advice, guided exercise and feedback, to ensure you are continuing to work towards your goals.
At JLinks Physiotherapy we always look into how we can improve your quality of life, functional ability and situation. Our work with you may include finding you specialist aids, referring to other healthcare professionals, and co-ordinating care plans with other professions such as neurologists, geriatricians, care managers, carers or members of your family.
During these consultations our physiotherapists will be making clinical notes as they would during a face to face appointment.
Will I get good quality care?
You can expect to receive the same safe, quality care that you would get during a face to face person visit. Our Physiotherapists will work to the highest level of professional standards
Are there any risks to receiving care via tele-rehab?
As part of initial conversations, your physiotherapist help you decide the best place for you to be when having a consultation. For example, a wheelie chair in an office is not a good idea! We will also check what procedures are in place to ensure the availability of help in the event of an emergency. For this reason, you may be asked to provide additional details of someone who is near to you.
The physiotherapist may recommend the Tele-rehab appointment takes place in the presence of someone close to you, if this is possible, to ensure safety and enhance the value of the consultation.
What is tele-rehab?
