Online Physiotherapy

Full Motion Physio Manchester Favicon

What you need to know about Online physiotherapy:

  • Although no hands-on treatment is possible in an online physio session, for many conditions this is fine, because hands-on therapy isn’t always essential.
  • However, some injuries do need hands-on treatment. I will always tell you at the Initial Consultation if Online treatment is unsuitable for you I will signpost you to the appropriate medical professional.
  • Online Follow-up sessions (30 minutes) are shorter than In Clinic sessions, because there is no hands-on treatment.

Questions & Answers

How do you carry out a diagnosis online?

Diagnosis online is as rigorous as it is In Clinic, but it normally takes longer online because I will need to lead you through the process:

  • We go through a thorough physio-guided questioning process. You will have time to explain your injury in detail. What you felt at the time, did you hear a pop?
  • I will then guide you through a series of physical tests to assess you. Using this information, I connect the dots and diagnose the injury.
  • We then work in partnership, to help build a recovery program suited to your lifestyle and available equipment, to get you back functioning pain-free.

How do we replace the hands-on treatment?

Hands-on treatment are just ONE of the tools in a physio’s skill set. It can be effective for many conditions but is certainly not the be-all and end-all. Below are examples of how online physio can benefit you.

  • As your online physio, I will advise you on self-treatment techniques which include self-massage, stretches and exercises.
  • Targeted home exercise programs have been consistently backed up in medical literature. Detailed research (by Smidt et al 2005), found home exercise programs to be highly beneficial for the treatment of a wide range of injuries including low back pain.
  • Increased awareness. My role is to help you understand your injury, why it happened and equip you with the tools to independently manage your condition.

Can’t I just use the internet to determine my own treatment? Or use an online “Symptom Checker”?

  • “Symptom Checkers” have been found to be terribly misleading and inaccurate.
  • Your recovery needs to start with an accurate diagnosis, using a qualified and experienced physio.
  • Your online physio may refer you to an exercise available online, but only after he or she has verified that the video information is trustworthy

If I need an X-ray, can you help?

Yes, I can write a medical referral letter to your doctor for any other treatment you need, including X-rays.
