Virtual Care Services Offered By Lethbridge Physiotherapy
Lethbridge Physiotherapy is pleased to offer a way to connect remotely for those who are unable to come in for treatment. We use a secure online platform called Embodia (via Zoom) to deliver a safe and easy virtual experience.
All that is needed is an internet connection, a device with a camera such as a smartphone, tablet or computer, and an email address and web browser (Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox).
Your virtual session will involve a detailed history taking regarding your injury, you will be asked to do a series of movements or tests to help the therapist determine the problem and then you will be given advice on how to manage your injury at home.
You will be shown exercises to help improve your mobility and/or strength and these will be emailed to you as well. Most sessions will last 20-30 minutes and you will be able to track your progress online within the platform for your therapist to see.
You will have open communication with your therapist via email throughout your entire virtual care program. As virtual care is gaining in popularity, more and more extended health benefit plans are covering the costs of online treatments.
However, some plans may require pre-approval for virtual treatments so we ask that you contact your provider prior to booking your appointments to ensure your treatments are covered.
**Once booked, you will be emailed detailed instructions on how to prepare for your virtual appointment**
