What was, just a few weeks ago, thought of as a newer and underused form of client/practitioner interaction is now a huge part of our lives; but what is Virtual care exactly?
Virtual care is a way for you to access chiropractic and physiotherapy care from the comfort of your own home via telecommunication. The Runner’s Academy is using our electronic medical record system (Clinic Master) for Virtual sessions which meets the standards for health care and privacy of information.
While the current global pandemic is forcing people to stay home, it does not mean anyone has to go without quality care and focused rehabilitation. Virtual care has proven to be an effective alternative to in-person treatment across several health care services and is now going mainstream as practitioners find new and creative ways to address the needs of our patients.
Although our practitioners are not able to do any type of manual therapy or acupuncture through Virtual care, there is still a lot that can be accomplished in a session. Our years of education and experience allow our eyes to be just as powerful as our hands. At The Runner’s Academy we are very attuned to watching our clients move and run, and so we thoroughly believe Virtual care to be a very effective alternative for receiving treatment.
During a Virtual session we can look at movement and track symptoms based on a client’s response. We can also have the client perform various tests that we are trained to assign and come up with a plan of action to move you forward.
What we can help with:
- Check in on injury/pain/movement
- Education re: injury/training/exercise
- Assess movement and injury status
- Prescribe and progress active care
- Inform on self care tactics and methods
- Advise on next steps
Our goal is always to give power to the client and to provide the necessary tools and advice for effective care; Virtual appointments allow us to continue doing just that.
