Get An Online Physio, Chiro Or Dietitian Consult With Masnad Health Clinic From Only $65 Today

Is your health not the best at the moment and are unable to come into the clinic? Don’t make the mistake of simply ignoring your health problems. We are still here to help!

Our Core Purpose is to “deliver optimal health and happiness to the community”. We’re also fulfilling this for you through online consults with our Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Dietitians, and Pilates Instructors within the comfort of your own home. Medicare, NDIS, Private health insurers, and SIRA (for work and car accident injuries) all subsidise online consults, so it’s affordable!

WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR ONLINE CONSULT?

All you need is your phone or laptop! Your therapist will ask you questions about your injury or condition, check out your reports, conduct an assessment and provide you with a treatment plan to help you get back to doing what you love as fast as possible.

Your therapist will also share diagrams, images and videos to help you understand your condition better. We use an excellent app called PhysiApp that will play videos of the exercises your therapist prescribes you with to ensure that you’re performing them correctly. The app will also remind you to complete your home exercises!

We’re Offering Online Pilates Sessions Also!

BUT….WHAT ABOUT THE HANDS-ON TREATMENT?

There is extensive research that shows exercise therapy is more effective in reducing pain and helping you move better in the long term in comparison to hands-on treatment. The key is to get you moving safely and effectively as quickly as possible.

However we understand it feels good to get the tension in your muscles released, so we will be teaching you techniques on how you could ease muscular tension with the equipment you have at home such as a tennis ball, water bottle, wooden spoon, pillow or even a towel, etc. Sounds impossible but it’s definitely possible!

Do you have any tips for me on how to set myself up for an online consultation?

  • Please have space around you so we can see your whole body on the camera when we ask you to bend forward or raise your arms ups. As a general tip, you should have enough space to place your laptop/smartphone at least 2 metres away from you.
  • It’s best to have a consultation on your laptop. You can use your smartphone, but you will need to lean it on something or preferably have someone record you as we ask you to do specific movements.

What do I wear?

For Physiotherapy or chiropractic consults, make sure the injured area can be seen by the therapist or wear loose fitting clothes that won’t restrict your movement. Please be assured your privacy is our top priority.

The health and well being of our valued clients, community, and our team here at Masnad Health Clinic are of utmost importance to us. If you would like to learn more, you can contact us on (02) 9793 8840.
