Telehealth – Osteopathy & Clinical Pilates

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we at VicSportsRehab have had to adapt how we currently manage our appointments to ensure everyone’s health and safety remains the top priority.

Telehealth is a consult delivered either by telephone or via video chat to assist you with your musculoskeletal complaints. This may seem unusual for an Osteopath to deliver a consult without using our hands but within all of our consults we deliver advice, assessment, diagnosis, prognosis, self-treatment and management strategies and exercise prescription.

Telehealth is not for all musculoskeletal complaints but it can be used to help you manage at home. By chatting to your Osteopath, they can help you understand if your complaint needs hands on treatment, medication from your doctor and/or imaging (x-ray, MRI, etc) and prescribe self management/treatment strategies to help improve your complaint.

As we all need to stay at home as much as possible during this time, Telehealth is a tool we can use to manage your musculoskeletal health and to maintain the continuity of your care.

Your Clinical Pilates session can also be delivered via a live Telehealth video session with your Osteopath and a home based program can be developed for you. If you have any questions feel free to contact us on 03 9787 7702
