The platform we decided to use is called Physitrack, it allows for confidential and secure video calls. The patient can download an app called 'Physiapp' or view in their browser.
Once it has been decided that your condition can be treated using telerehabilitation, you will be sent some instructions about your upcoming appointment using physiapp/physitrack. You will be provided with an access code that will allow you to log in.
Following the assessment, you will likely be provided with some education and advice regarding your condition and exercises will be sent in video format for you to view.
If you are visiting Winnipeg, you can choose to have your initial assessment, or any of your follow-ups, at one of our clinics. This can be more helpful and will provide the therapist with the ability to have a more in-depth assessment. We have a clinic at 5130 Henderson Highway, Narol and the other at ? Medinah Drive, La Salle.
*Please note, an in-clinic assessment is not essential.
Limitations to Telerehabilitation
There will be some conditions that will not be appropriate to be treated using telerehabilitation. An intake form will sent to you prior to your assessment. Please answer the questions with as much information as you can, it will help the physiotherapist determine if you can be treated effectively using telerehabiliation.
If it has been decided that telerehabiliation is not appropriate to treat your condition, we will help find your nearest physiotherapy clinic or if necessary, make contact with your family doctor.
