Keeping you moving
Wakefield Sports + Exercise Medicine Clinic physiotherapy is now offering telehealth consults for those clients who are unable to attend face-to-face consults.
Since the COVID-19 shut down, we have developed a streamlined Telehealth service via Zoom.
Private Health Care CEO, Dr Rachel David, states “the primary focus of health funds was to meet the needs of the community and their members. There is evidence that individual telehealth consultations with physiotherapists is effective’’.
Telehealth consults are a great way to progress your rehabilitation and keep you moving from your home environment.
HOW TO JOIN A ZOOM MEETING
The Zoom platform requires a laptop with audio function and a camera.
Alternatively, you can use your smartphone.
