WHAT IS A VIRTUAL APPOINTMENT?
A Online Virtual Video Consultation is the same as any regular clinical appointment.
The only difference is that you will see and speak to your Chiropractor via a video conference call.
If you have ever used Skype or FaceTime, then you’ll already be familiar with how Virtual Consultation works.
Its very easy to use and our clients have excellent results.
These web-based consultations give you the opportunity to speak with a qualified Chiropractor
without having to attend physical appointment,
ensuring you get the right advice immediately which will support and facilitate your speedy recovery.
Most consultations can take place via our secure platform called PhysiApp.
Alternatively, we can accomodate appointments via Zoom, which are free & secure!
CLINICAL AND PAST-MEDICAL HISTORY
We take all patients through a thorough clinical and past-medical history, in order to help us make a diagnosis, and guide patient management.
This may include a clear virtual :
- Movement & Joint tests - through verbal instructions
- Postural Examination
- Gait Examination
If additional tests are indicated, an onward referral can be arranged.
We'll let you know:
- A Diagnosis of your complaint: What it is and what’s causing it...
- A Prognosis of your case: How it’s expected to progress / develop, or, how long it will take to get better...
- An explanation of the Proposed Treatment(should we deem ourselves suitable for the management of your complaint).
This will inform you of:
What we can do to help, What you'll be able to do, in order to help yourself. What results you can expect and The rate at which you can expect these results.
On some occasions virtual appointments may not allow for all aspects of examination. For example with complex neurological conditions. Sometimes further physical examination, special tests such as blood tests, and investigative imaging such as an X-ray, MRI or Diagnostic US, may need to be carried out by a qualified healthcare professional.
However, this can be discussed in full during your Virtual Consultation Appointment (Online Virtual Video Consultation), and onward referral can be arranged. We have providers for all of these services & can arrange it for you local to your location. We may need to refer serious or complex patients back to their GP for referral if their needs are compacted our outwith our relevant areas of expertise..
