Online Physio - Move4 Northampton Moving With The Times
You may have seen or heard us building up the suspense in recent days about a new service we're offering at Move4 Physio Northampton. To say we're excited about the prospect of this is a huge understatement!
Over the last decade, most industries have been revolutionised by technological advances. These changes have drastically changed how we live our lives and have made previously time consuming, awkward tasks much more run of the mill. Productivity has spiked and now the general public expect everything they need or want to be available 'On Demand'.
The health sector seems to be lagging behind in this respect, with long waiting times for appointments, and a lack of digital solutions to address simple problems that we all face.
This is why Move4 have been planning and preparing a new service which we will now be offering.... Online Physiotherapy
Now you may be asking yourself a few questions.....
'How can they properly assess my problem if they can't physically touch or move my body around?'
Most of what we gain as a physio comes in the first few minutes after we start talking about your problem. The subjective assessment is crucial and guides us to certain injuries and likely diagnoses. There are times where a physical examination is necessary, if this is the case then we will give you a 50% discount off your appointment with us at the clinic, just so you know this isn't a money making scheme.
'How can you do a full assessment in 20 minutes?'
The aim of this service is to give you quick access to a physio, to enable you to manage your issue optimally from the word go rather than waiting weeks for an appointment, and by the time you get to it, the issue has either got worse, or there are new problems as a result of the initial insult. If we feel after speaking to you, and getting you to carry out some specific movements, that you need to see a physio in person then we will say so, and you will receive your 50% discount. If we feel you can manage the issue yourself then we will suggest some things to do, and maybe even send you some online videos for you to carry out at home. All in all saving you time and money, whilst increasing the effectiveness of physiotherapy at the same time.
There are a few key people who we feel this is suited to
THE BUSY PROFESSIONAL OR THOSE WITH A HECTIC FAMILY LIFE, WHO SIMPLY CAN'T DEVOTE THE TIME TO VISIT THE CLINIC AND MAY HELP YOU TO GET BACK TO FULL FITNESS WITHOUT EVER HAVING TO DO SO.
IT'S ALSO GREAT FOR THE WEEKEND WARRIOR WHO WANTS A BETTER IDEA OF HOW TO MANAGE AN INJURY PICKED UP AT THE WEEKEND, AND OBTAIN A DIAGNOSIS WITH AN IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT WITH REGARDS TO TIMESCALE. COACHES AND CAPTAINS WILL THANK YOU FOR EARLY COMMUNICATION ON AVAILABILITY FOR NEXT WEEKS GAME!
This is also a great way to carry out follow up appointments, the therapist is able to chat to you about progress or new issues, and modify your management plan with ease. The ability for us to send you videos really helps the rehab side of things.
If in doubt, give it try, and we can get you on the road to recovery sooner than you ever could before!
In the Meantime.....
