HOW DOES ONLINE PHYSIO WORK
STEP 1 : BOOK YOUR ONLINE CONSULTATION
Phone 085 7836633 or email email@example.com. And we will arrange a time that suits you for the video appointment, providing a step-by-step document of how to access the video service.
STEP 2: VIDEO/PHONE APPOINTMENT
Your chartered Physiotherapist will provide a 45-minute video conference and diagnosis. In this service you will receive a full assessment and range of tests, and home self-management treatment where feasible (e.g. foam rolling, dynamic stretching, self-mobilisation under guidance of the physio).
If you are unable for a video call, a 15-minute phone call can be arranged.
STEP 3: PERSONALISED PLAN
You will receive prescription exercises (where appropriate) using our Physio rehab exercise App, where you can log your daily progress.
At the end of the consultation you will be given a timeframe for your recovery and have the option to book follow on appointments. Please note, if video calls aren’t available for you then phone appointments are also available.

Set up in a quiet area of your house/office with a good wifi connection.
Click the link, download and install the software Zoom on your device
I DON'T HAVE ANY EQUIPMENT AT HOME, DOES IT MATTER?
No, it doesn't. We design your rehab programme based on body weight exercises or whatever equipment and space that you have available at home.
SHOULD I USE MY SMARTPHONE, TABLET OR COMPUTER FOR THE VIDEO CONSULTATION?
You should use your laptop ideally, with the camera and microphone turned on. You can use a phone or tablet but a laptop is the best option.
If you are using your phone or tablet, try to have it set up so you can move back around the room as we may be asking you to perform movements and exercises.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Our video consutations cost 40 euro and are paid through our online payment system
CAN I CLAIM ONLINE SESSIONS BACK LIKE NORMAL SESSIONS?
Yes. We are registered physiotherapists of the ISCP. You can claim up to 75% back on all appointments depending on your health provider.
We would ask that you check with your own specific insurance policy but Irish Life, Laya and VHI all are covering online chartered physiotherapy within their treatment cover
