Why should I book an online physiotherapy appointment?
An online physiotherapy appointment will connect you with a physiotherapist who can provide you with a clear diagnosis of your issue. We are unsure how long this period of self isolation will last, but we do know that having early treatment will get your better faster. Waiting for an in-clinic appointment can lead to worsening of your symptoms, increased pain, and compensatory movement patterns. A consultation with a physiotherapist will provide you a personalized program with postural correction, mobility exercises, and home workout routine which is very effective at treating either new or old injuries.
