The idea of having an appointment with your Osteopath over Telehealth might seem strange, and you are probably wondering how they can help when they aren’t able to touch you.
Let me share with you a secret, as Osteopath’s a lot of what we do to help our patients and ease their pain isn’t about what our hands do on the treatment table, but the reassurance, explanation’s and advise we give.
Knowing your diagnosis is a powerful first step to understanding and overcoming your pain. We can still perform an Osteopathic examination over Telehealth, and we will still ask you all those important clinical questions to come up with a diagnosis to share with you.
Have your questions answered!
Eg. How long will it take to resolve? Should I be doing x, y & z or avoiding those activities at the moment? Is it normal to feel …. ? What should I do if it gets worse? Heat or Ice?
Having these questions answered will give you clarity & peace of mind knowing you are in control and are educated on your injury/pain.
Advise, and rehab stretches and exercises!
Having tailored advise, like using heat over ice and specific exercises will give you the faster healing outcomes.
Can you think of a time when you may have had a sore lower back, tried some random online stretch video and gotten up feeling worse. Even though you have the best intention, without really knowing what is going on and taking into account many other factors you can sometimes get it wrong. Avoid the risk by instead getting the advise from your trusted Osteopath.
We are here to listen and support you. If you would like to book online for a Telehealth appointment with our team click here we would love to help.
