What is Telehealth? What Do I Need?
We are offering physiotherapy and kinesiology visits via telephone (smartphone), tablet or laptop for BC residents. For your session, you will need:
- A laptop or desktop computer with speakers and a microphone
- Google Chrome (recommended), Mozilla Firefox, or Safari 11 or newer (for Apple devices)
- An open space for exercise and movement
- A well-lit area so we can see you (for video consults)
- Exercise bands, baseball/lacrosse ball, soccer ball and any other equipment you may have
How Does a TeleHealth Visit Work?
You will have a scheduled time for your consult just like a regular in-clinic appointment.
- For video consults, you will receive an email from your clinic for a TeleHealth appointment when your Physiotherapist or Kinesiologist is ready. Just click the join now button in the email and you will be automatically connected with your therapist.
- No account making is required . Please make sure to allow pop-up windows on your computer, which could restrict the appointment.
Benefits of Telehealth
- Continued care: Virtual visits allow for continuous access to a physical therapist for treatment and positive outcomes.
- Prevention: Utilize a custom home exercise program to maintain your strength, endurance and prevent new injuries
- Stay proactive: Schedule a virtual visit to discuss new pain or symptoms with your physical therapist and develop a personalized program of care.
- Access from anywhere: Work ‘one on one’ with your physical therapist in the privacy and comfort of your own home via our virtual platform saving time, travel and keeping you safe
