Telehealth – What is it?

The Pandemic and COVID 19 have brought about some significant changes in all of our lives. In the world of healthcare, it has certainly fast-tracked the much talked about, but slowly evolving world of Telehealth. At City Sports + Physio Clinic – we do not want your rehab and injury management to have to wait until COVID19 is all over. Initially we started offering Telehealth appointments to allow you to connect with your physiotherapist during the Pandemic as everyone works from home. As time has gone on, we have discovered that Telehealth is beneficial for anyone, at any time, even outside of a pandemic.

What is TeleHealth?

Telehealth is the use of communication technologies to all you and your health care professional to connect when you are unable to do so in person.

What is Tele-Rehabilitation?

Tele-rehabilitation or TeleRehab falls under the umbrella of TeleHealth. It is the use of communication technologies to allow you and your physiotherapist to connect via video or phone to receive physiotherapy services at a distance when an in-person visit is not possible.

It is an extremely useful way for us to assess you and provide self management tools and exercise to help you self manage your injury or aches and pains from home.

As with any digital communication, and particularly in healthcare, privacy and confidentiality are always key. We have created a document, through the guidance of our College of Physical Therapists of BC, to help you understand TeleRehab at CSPC.
