About us

Therapy Virtual believe the future of healthcare is online.

Medical evidence consistently suggests that early intervention, early appropriate advice and tailored, progressive exercise is the most effective way to recover from injury. We believe the most effective, simplest and convenient way to deliver this is virtually.

All our specialist physiotherapists must have over 6 years post graduate experience in managing musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions before they can work for Therapy Virtual. We pride ourselves on the quality of our service and so the excellence and ongoing professional development of our team is our top priority.

There is an established body of evidence that suggests proactive management of the physical health of your workforce reduces absenteeism and increases productivity. Therapy Virtual provides a cost effective tool to support your staff and business whether they work at home or in an office or site.

Therapy Virtual are your partners of choice for online workforce Physiotherapy. We guarantee immediate access to a Physiotherapist if your staff member is absent due to pain and will support them to return to work as quickly as possible.

We are experts at engaging your teams to deliver preventative strategies and exercise to reduce absenteeism, and so improve the health of your people.

We would love the opportunity to support your business and you people. Please contact us to find out more
