The basics of TeleRehab.
TeleRehab is an online rehab session where you and your physiotherapist communicate over a live video chat via phone or computer. It has been used for years by doctors and specialists to communicate with patients who cannot make it to an in-person visit for whatever reason.
Requirements for TeleRehab
Computer, tablet or smartphone with a camera, microphone, speakers, and a reasonable internet connection.
Does treatment/training have to be hands on to be effective?
Being focused on movement and exercise quality, our treatment style is already well suited for TeleRehab. We can modify and correct exercise and still make modifications to your rehab as needed.
There are some limitations that exist without the ability to conduct hands-on assessments and manual therapy, but our experienced physiotherapist can adapt the treatment to suit your particular needs.
Will treatment be covered by my insurance provider?
ICBC is funding TeleHealth sessions during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no additional fees charged by the clinic.
Most private insurance companies are accepting TeleHealth claims, but please check with your provider directly to determine your exact coverage.
Please read through our TeleHealth Guide.
