New Service At The Spine & Sports Injury Clinic – Video Consultations
By creating a Video Consultation service we can continue to support our patients with their pain complaints during and beyond the current Pandemic. These appointments are an excellent alternative for patients who are unable or uncomfortable to attend a face-to-face appointment.
For more information on how The Spine & Sports Injury Clinic is practicing during the COVID-19 pandemic please see our Treatment Policy.
Video Consultation: How is it provided and what does it costs
Access to a video consultation is easy – on booking you’ll receive a confirmation email with a clickable link. At the time of your appointment click the link to be taken to our online video consultation platform. There’s no need to download or install 3rd party software, everything is conducted on the portal. All you need is a device that has a camera and can receive the confirmation email and your ready to go. The sessions last for 20-30 minutes and are charged at £25.00.
How Remote Consultations Can Help
- A detailed review of the pain complaint in the comfort of your own home. We can review your medical history and record the details about your pain or injury.
- The consultation is conducted Alexander Pouros; who has over 18 years experience in the manual therapy field. He’ll carry out some assessments and movements to help identify what he thinks the issues are. This will help with devising a likely diagnosis.
- Where exercises are beneficial, a detailed exercise rehabilitation programme can be emailed. If possible, your exercise technique can be reviewed over the video link and corrected if there are any technique concerns.
- Alexander will continue to provide an on going point of contact, delivering advice and management strategies for your pain complaints in the same way he would for a face-to-face appointment. He’ll also advice on self help therapy to aid symptomatic relief.
