The Benefits of Telehealth Sessions for Virtual Healthcare

Book a Virtual Physio Session with Scott Golding at Movement Chiropractic

Virtual healthcare, or telerehabilitation, has been growing in popularity for the management and treatment of a variety of health conditions, primarily due to the effectiveness and convenience that this method of care offers. The benefits of telehealth sessions for virtual healthcare reduce travel barriers, offer more flexible hours, and can be completed from the comfort of your home. In instances where you are unable to make it to the clinic, your progress does not need to be delayed as continued care by virtual appointment will still provide a positive standard of care.

What is Telehealth and How Does it Work?

Telehealth services are delivered remotely via secure electronic communications by telephone, videoconference and internet-based technologies. Virtual healthcare sessions focus on consultations, assessments and intervention services, provided from a distance and often in the comfort of your own home. At Movement Chiropractic we offer virtual physiotherapy sessions.

The Main Objectives of Virtual Physio Sessions

  • Support and educate patients to manage their symptoms
  • Assess a patient’s goals relating to movement, activity and physical health
  • Provide treatment to patients who may have barriers to in-person treatments
  • Share self-treatment techniques for mobility, strength and function
  • Offers convenience and flexibility to patients in scheduling sessions

How Effective Are Telehealth Sessions?

In a research paper done by the University of Malaga, Spain, evidence was found pointing to the management of musculoskeletal conditions in real-time telerehabilitation being effective in improving physical function, disability, and pain (1).

Another case conducted by the University of Oslo, Norway studied the telehealth services provided by health professionals in rural and remote areas and found that telehealth was not any less effective in comparison to face-to-face sessions (2).
