A Comprehensive Guide for the Perfect Online Physiotherapy Services

Physiotherapy is a treatment that intends to help people move freely and with less or no pain, by using physical methods like massage and exercise rather than treatments or surgeries. It is the process used for the treatment of any indication, injury, as well as deformity, by physical methods such as exercise, massage, and heat treatment. 

What is online physiotherapy?

Online physiotherapy, also known as Telehealth physiotherapy, is a digital alternative to in-person appointments for physiotherapy. Individuals can get their condition diagnosed and treated by a completely qualified physiotherapist via a video call, rather than in person.

Online physiotherapy consultation service uses the video meeting technology for conducting a video-based consultation between a patient and a physiotherapist.

For consultation, one can use a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or a desktop computer having a camera, microphone and earphones, speakers, or headset.

This is convenient for people who live in rural areas, find it difficult to travel, or don't have the time to stuck in traffic jams on their way to a physio appointment.

Besides, an increasing number of clinical studies have demonstrated that telehealth/online physiotherapy consultations are safe, secure, cost-effective, as well as in the vast majority of cases, as effective as in-room consultations.

Physiotherapy Insurance

Medicare is the universal health insurance scheme in Australia. It makes sure all Australians get an access to a variety of services (health and hospital) at low or no cost.

However, Medicare will only cover the physiotherapy costs that incur as an inpatient in a public hospital. Whenever a person takes extras with health insurance, he can obtain benefits towards the cost of physiotherapy. In some health insurance coverage, cover for physiotherapy comes under extras and can offer benefits during the visit to a physiotherapist.
