LIVE VIRTUAL 1-ON-1 VIDEO APPOINTMENT SYSTEM
At a time like this, it's more important than ever to try and maintain a sense of normalcy and take care of your health and safety. While we deal with this change in routine, it is still vital that we pay attention to our healthcare and keep up with our treatment routine so as not to make the problem worse.
That's why we're now introducing a LIVE Virtual 1-on-1 Video Appointment System that allows you to meet your physical therapist without stepping of the house.
The following common injuries and conditions are well suited to telerehabilitation:
- Acute injuries such as sprained ankles or knees, low back pain, neck pain, headaches or shoulder pain
- Chronic injuries
- Post surgery e.g. ACL rehab, post hip or knee replacement
- Injury prevention for sports like running, volleyball and skiing
- Women’s health problems like urinary incontinence (Natasha only)

2. Complete your intake forms. They will be emailed to you as soon as you book your appointment. Please take the time to complete these prior to your appointment. (Even if you've filled the consent form before, there's a different one for telehealth).
3. You can join your telehealth appointment using either a cell phone/ iPad or a desktop computer (preferred).

To ensure you have a great appointment, please ensure the following:
- have your camera set up in a location that allows you to move around and still be seen.
- have clear audio - you may want to consider using earbuds for clearer sound (not necessary).
- have a private space free of distraction so you can focus on what you need.
6. Following your appointment, your therapist will summarize the goals and treatment plan you agree on, assist you with booking your follow-up sessions, and send you your homework.
