Hello, we have been thinking hard about how we can help and advise our clients now that it's safer not to be in the same space. To do so, we are harnessing online video and the phone, to provide high-quality care. Many patients have benefitted from remote check-ins with their Brixton Therapy Centre therapists before, and we are now expanding this option to include new patients. Fortunately there is a lot of help that we can offer remotely. In fact, research shows that the quality of medical consultations when done remotely is similar to those in the clinic. Physical examination findings still hold true when compared to remote diagnoses. Some low back pain patients do very well with remote management. Moreover we've found that most patients are highly satisfied with tele-healthcare, thanks to easier therapy access and reduced expenses and travel. Over the last week, we have worked tirelessly to create a professional, safe, and effective remote treatment experience for our patients, putting us into a great position to continue to help the community in those challenging times. Please see below for details. On social media we will be posting regular advice on all sorts of topics from wellbeing support to ergonomics for home working to exercises for specific conditions. These are difficult times but we will get through this if we all support each other as best as we can. If you like to keep updated we are on all the usual social media and you can sign up for our newsletter on our website. Contact details can be found at the bottom of this email. Wishing all the best, stay safe. Mardi and the team
