Divine Life Physio & Rehab Clinic is happy to announce that we will be starting virtual care for Physiotherapy and Chiropractic appointments.
What Is Virtual Rehab?
Virtual rehab is simply a remote appointment, conducted by a Divine Life Physiotherapist or by another health professional, either over the telephone or through a secure video conferencing application using your computer (with webcam), tablet (e.g., iPad) or smart-phone (iPhone or Android).
How does it work?
Before your appointment, you will receive a link (via email or text) to an appointment session through a video conference platform that facilitates real-time transmission of visual information between you and your therapist.
Any documentation that you need to review and complete prior to your appointment will be sent to you ahead of time.
If at any time during the session either you or your therapist feels that using electronic communications is limiting the effectiveness or quality of the services provided, we will look to schedule an in-person appointment with you.
What your first appointment will look like.
At the beginning of a virtual care session, your therapist will review your ID, obtain consent to participate in the session via the electronic communication platform. Then the therapist will proceed with the assessment or treatment in a similar manner as for an in-person appointment, including discussing your medical history, concerns and current status. Your therapist will monitor your progress and update your treatment plan as needed and will provide on-going guidance & support until we can return to in-person care.
Any questions or concerns you may have about virtual care, such as privacy or follow-up sessions, are addressed during the session.
My treatment is not going to be hands-on, how is this going to be affective?
Even without passive or hands-on treatments, there’s a lot that can be done to help ensure that your condition continues to improve. Even without in-person treatment we can,
- Evaluate your movements
- Have you tell us about what you are feeling
- Instruct you on how to self-evaluate
- Coach you through your stages of recovery
- Teach and support you with effective coping strategies and optimal mechanics
- Monitor and progress your activities and exercises to promote your return to function
Will my funder continue covering my claim if I use these services?
Continuity of your care is very important. If you have an active claim don't worry, we accept the majority of insurance companies, WSIB, MVA, and Private patients. We will help you continue to get the care and service you need. The majority of funders (e.g., Workers Compensation, Automobile Insurance, Disability Insurers and other Insurance Companies) endorse and cover this service. We will work with your funder to confirm coverage.
