How Could And Osteopath Help With An Online Consultation?

pexels-edward-jenner-4031818 (1)

So much of the important information we gather in a session comes from what patients tell us.

Things are changing very rapidly with coronavirus and, as health professionals, we need to change rapidly too.

There’s a perception that online consultation is a poor second best to face to face appointments. It isn’t. There is so much we can do to help and support a patient and it shifts your expectation towards discussion and planning and away from ‘hands on’ treatments that you know we can’t provide online.

With the right approach an online consultation can be a great opportunity to work collaboratively with you, hear your story and plan effective treatment together.

What can we do?

We take a full history of the presenting condition, cover past medical history and medications and explored work and hobbies including getting a breakdown of a typical week and what it includes. We discuss pain and its behaviour, delve into treatment and rehab so far and plan goals for the future. 

We are able to examine you by observing posture and asking you to perform some simple movements, exactly as we would in the clinic treatment room.

Treatment can include advice on modification of certain activities that may be aggravating your problem and progressive rehab exercises.

Over the years I have gradually realised that what I say to a patient is more important than what I actually do with them on the treatment couch.

In short, an online consultation can be a great way to get expert help and form a plan to get you moving again.

The practice has a calm friendly atmosphere, receptionists are lovely and the treatment is superb. Both myself and my husband have used their services with excellent results. Would and do highly recommend.

A very warm and welcoming clinic with extremely professional staff. Ive had a problem with my shoulder for the past 10 months and the osteopath was able to get me on the road to recovery and diagnose the problem. I would recommend clinic to anyone seeking professional and high quality help.
