Physiotherapy Assessments via Telehealth (Online Physio) Melbourne

Glen Eira Physiotherapy and Physiolates are now offering Telehealth appointments where we can assess patient’s injuries and give them advice online. With the online platform we are able to give them guidance on how to help themselves at home and also assess if they need to come into the clinic for a face to face consultation. We believe that exercise and education are key components of all injury and post-operative management, as well as vitally important for cardio vascular health and musculoskeletal strength and conditioning. We are currently using Physitrak software.

The Physitrak portal is encrypted and secure and allows the physios to complete a consultation with a patient without the need for you to come into the clinic (pretty amazing, we know)!

Physiotherapy Telehealth (online) Appointments

So, what does this portal allow us to do?

We are able to send our physio and pilates clients video clips of home exercises you will be able to do whilst at home.

Initially, this will be most relevant for patients who are of high risk, in quarantine or currently self-isolating.

We understand many of you might not have access to exercise equipment, and we’re thrilled to say that this won’t be an issue as most of the exercises use body weight! Additionally, we are more than happy to mail you out any equipment you may need that we have in stock, including therabands, spiky balls, foam rollers, etc.

To organise a Telehealth appointment:

  1. Call reception and book in an appointment with your preferred practitioner (and make sure you let them know you’re booking a Telehealth appointment, of course!)
  2. We will then email you a link to download the free Physiapp and send you through an access code.
  3. To attend your appointment, all you have to do is:
    • Open the app on your device.
    • Wait for us to call you! It’s truly that easy!
