Introducing Virtual Treatment
At The Medical we have a wealth of expertise in completing remote appointments as well as face to face interventions. Our Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and Doctors are highly skilled at delivering either telephone or video appointments, for a wide range of conditions, injuries, and complaints.
We complete these for large organisations, teams, or individuals on a membership or pay-as-you-go basis.
Virtual appointments can be a valuable tool as a stand-alone, or as part of a blended hands on and virtual care pathway.
We commonly use this form of intervention for GP consultations to receive a prescription, for progression of a rehab or strength and conditioning programme, or even as an emergency appointment if you can’t travel to our clinics due to severe or debilitating acute pain. They can also be excellent for important review sessions for interventions such as injection therapy, meaning less time out of work, or they can be done from the convenience and comfort of your own home at a time that suits you.
Studies of clinical practice show that up to 75% of a diagnosis can come from what patients say – known as the Subjective Assessment. Virtual appointments combine this Subjective Assessment, with video screening and expert observation of movement patterns and function in real time.
