Craven CONNECT @ HOME physiotherapy
Strength, mobility, recovery
Remote physiotherapy (telerehabilitation) involves the use of communication technologies that enable you and your physiotherapist to connect virtually via telephone or video call in order to receive treatment and guidance at a distance, when in-person visits are not possible.
You may consider a remote physiotherapy appointment:
• When you cannot easily attend an in-person visit
• When physiotherapy services are not available in your community
• To receive follow-up care by a CSS physiotherapist when you are away from Saskatoon
Are Craven CONNECT @ HOME appointments similar to in-person appointments?
Remote physiotherapy differs from in-person care such that your physiotherapist is unable to perform hands-on examination, assessment and treatment. Remote physiotherapy is the same as in-person care such that your physiotherapist will ensure compliance with all relevant privacy and security requirements and legislation during the provision of in-person or remote services. Policies and procedures are maintained at the same standard as in-person encounters for documentation, maintenance, and transmission of the records of the encounter using telerehabilitation technologies.
What to expect during your appointment:
During your Craven CONNECT @ HOME appointment, your physiotherapist will work to understand your injury, your symptoms, and your movement challenges. This process will include an interview (a verbal discussion of your medical history, past injuries, lifestyle, and current symptoms), visual observation of movement patterns (when possible), activity guidance, and the prescription of exercises, postural adjustments, and lifestyle changes to aid in your recovery. Exercise programs will be shared with clients via email following the completion of their appointment to allow for at-home utilization.
To partake in a Craven CONNECT @ HOME physiotherapy appointment, clients will require a smart-phone with a front-facing camera OR a computer with a webcam. While telephone conversations may be appropriate in some cases, the lack of visual aid will limit the extent and scope of treatment.
