We are living in a new reality—one where Covid-19 has become a household name, and social distancing, previously unheard of, has become the norm.
As we embrace our new normal and move forward, Total Vitality Centre has also pivoted to provide you (as we always have) with the best possible health care while adhering to practices as recommended by our province.
“Telehealth” will soon be on the tip of everyone’s tongue, but the question will remain:
Is a video appointment as effective as the traditional in-person approach?
The answer is yes, depending on the service being offered. At Total Vitality Centre, we have carefully chosen which services to offer remotely, based on their effectiveness, and are pleased to announce we now offer Physiotherapy via Telehealth.
Physiotherapists are movement specialists, promoting optimal well-being by focusing on mobility and function. Recent studies show that physiotherapy via telehealth offers a level of care comparable to in-person visits. Whether you are unable to leave your home due to Covid-19, or due to transportation concerns, work limitations, or other restrictions, telehealth can connect you with your physiotherapist—one on one—from the comfort of your home or office.
Your physiotherapist will work with you in a personal video consultation to establish a thorough understanding of your body and the unique challenges you are facing when it comes to movement. Because technology has come so far in recent years, via video conferencing your physiotherapist will be able to identify where improvements are needed, educate you, and provide a detailed regimen of exercises to follow with in-person instructions ensuring you have the correct form.
Physiotherapy via telehealth is only performed by licensed physiotherapists and with the same level of safety, ethical standards, and effectiveness as traditional physiotherapy appointments and may be covered by your Extended Health plan.
In honour of May being National Physiotherapy Month, for a limited time, we are also offering a free 60 minute session with a personal trainer (in-person with social distancing or via Zoom). Promotion is per candidate and valid only for first appointment booked.
We are here to help you on your wellness journey, so make an appointment today and let’s get moving!
