If you have any concerns about your injury then please give us a call to schedule an appointment to see me. I’ll be more than happy to discuss your injury and treatment in detail try and get you back to the best possible functional outcome. Currently, I am able to offer remote consultations with numerous video platforms or a simple telephone.
I can use a variety of platforms that are convenient for patients. These include FaceTime, WhatsApp, and Skype. In addition, using your email, I can set up a consultation with you and a family member/caregiver who is at a different location but can be involved in the discussion using a platform called Zoom. This can be highly advantageous and also rewarding.
During these consults, I am able to gather valuable information which allows me to form clinical diagnoses and give appropriate advice until such time that investigations can be performed. This can be done in any of the locations I consult in (see below). HOWEVER, in the current climate, I will not recommend this unless it is absolutely essential or I am concerned about a serious problem such as a fracture. Once the lockdown situation has improved, you will be prioritised to undergo the investigation you need quickly.
Whilst, you are waiting, I work with a team of excellent physiotherapists who work remotely and give you the treatment you need all in the safety of your own home. You will be set clear targets, which are personalised and achievable and a safe solution during this pandemic.
