Online Physiotherapy: What is it and does it work?
Physiotherapy is continuously growing in popularity and is becoming a primary instead of a secondary service. The scope of physiotherapy is broad with many specialties inside of the name. The physiotherapy method Curastream provides is an approached with a unique patient participation role.
The live online video consultation type of service delivery provides the patient with a very practical and participatory role. Exercise therapy is a very direct and highly effective strategy. This strategy allows the patient to take on a large part of the rehabilitation process as too often healthcare professionals are seen as healers and miracle workers but many patients do not realize their importance in their own rehabilitation process.
Exercise prescription is often the most effective way to rehabilitate a physical injury. With our culture continuously relying more on technology to do the work, people activate and use their muscles less in a physical excursion capacity. Less activation and muscle use will lead to reduced strength, joint instability, muscle atrophy (size), and reduced energy. With today’s quick fix attitude and short attention spans makes it difficult for patients to engage in their roles in their physical rehabilitation process. When patients are engaged and motivated to participate, they start seeing real results and become more motivated and more involved. This creates very successful treatment plans in which the patients are well educated and less likely to sustain the same injury because of their rehab process.
Taking the practical participation approach my be new to most patients, but really does allow for a more dynamics and practical professional/patient relationship which results in increased treatment results, decreased clinic visits, and cost savings. Couple that with our team’s extensive physical rehabilitation knowledge and their patient education ability, and you have a recipe for success!
