Our Physiotherapists are experts in exercise prescription. Whether you are in severe pain due to an acute spinal condition or in the late stages of marathon training, our specialist Physiotherapists have the tools to deliver a tailored program to progress your rehabilitation or performance. Therapy Virtual use a web based exercise prescription tool that provides videos to your email address to ensure you know what to do and how to do it. This tool also allows us to video you whilst you are doing your rehabilitation program, allowing feedback on technique to ensure you are completing your rehabilitation correctly.
Should I keep playing sport? Is exercise good for my condition? Do I need to rest and ice my injury and for how long? Any question about your injury can be address via our online services.
If our Physiotherapist does not think they are the most appropriate person to manage your condition, we will not delay in referring you to the most appropriate professional. This may be a GP, surgeon or other allied health professional. Rest assured that all our Physiotherapists are appropriately skilled and qualified to be the first contact you make with a health professional and can safely decide the most appropriate route for your care.
8.9 million working days are lost each year in the UK due to musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. This means on average each business will incur a cost of £720 per employee, per year for this reason. The longer a problem persists without appropriate management, the more likely it is to become a chronic problem and result in long term sickness absence. Therapy Virtual offers a cost effective solution to reducing your spend on unnecessary musculoskeletal conditions within your business by partnering with your organisation to deliver immediate intervention if your employee complains of pain, as well as delivering preventative strategies to reduce the chances of this happening
