Exercise Physiology
via Telehealth

  MAKE AN APPOINTMENT  

WHAT IS TELEHEALTH?
Telehealth is an innovative way that we can facilitate your exercise physiology treatment remotely via an online video consultation.

TREATING PATIENTS ACROSS NSW
Access to Telehealth is available to all patients injured in NSW under Worker's Compensation & CTP Insurance health schemes (SIRA). 

HOW WE CAN HELP
We can facilitate hydrotherapy and exercise physiology treatment programs via Telehealth for patients with musculoskeletal injuries. 

INDIVIDUALISED PROGRAMS
Telehealth patients will receive a prescribed exercise program specifically design by one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists.

Who Is Telehealth For?

We believe that high quality exercise physiology care should be made available to all Australians. This is why we offer Telehealth consultations to those patients in our wider communities.

Our Telehealth patients will continue to receive the same high level of individualised care as do in-person Exercise Physiology services.

Delivered by our team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists, we know that your prescribed exercises are designed specifically for your unique situation, to help you achieve your best quality of life possible.

Telehealth consultations are especially important for members of the community that are currently under isolation or live in remote regions; with some level of physical incapacity caused by an injury.

"It’s easy to follow the exercises via the video call. Such an innovative alternative to being seen in person."

Aaron Henderson | Telehealth patient

HYDROTHERAPY

Facilitating hydrotherapy treatment in this current climate is next to impossible due to all the government restrictions that have been put in place for COVD-19; so we have been innovative to offer hydrotherapy treatment via Telehealth. However in order to receive hydrotherapy treatment in this way, you WILL need access to a swimming pool to perform your prescribed exercises.

Using Telehealth to deliver hydrotherapy treatment may sound a little odd, but it is quite simple in the way it works:

Step 1:
You will initially have an assessment via an online video with your Accredited Exercise Physiologist, to determine your current physical capacity and establish specific goals for your treatment program; and make recommendations to your insurer.

Step 2:
Upon receiving insurer approval, your Accredited Exercise Physiologist will then design your hydrotherapy treatment program to be specifically tailored for your current situation.

Step 3:
You will receive instructional exercise video tutorials (demonstrating how to perform your prescribed hydrotherapy exercises); and discuss them with your Accredited Exercise Physiologist via online video consultation.

Step 4:
Your Accredited Exercise Physiologist will continue to monitor your progress via online video consultation; making adjustments to your hydrotherapy treatment program as necessary to assist your recovery.


To get started with your hydrotherapy ASAP
, simply complete an
online referral form to help expediate the approval process with your insurer; or you can ask your GP write a referral letter to Fitco Health Technologies for hydrotherapy treatment.


EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY

Receiving exercise physiology treatment in this current climate is somewhat limited due to all the government restrictions that have been put in place for COVD-19 (closure of commercial gyms). However with Telehealth, we are continuing to be innovative in the way that we facilitate our treatment programs.

Delivering exercise physiology treatment via Telehealth is slightly easier as it can be performed inside your home. Below is a quick breakdown of what to expect:

Step 1:
You will initially have an assessment via an online video with your Accredited Exercise Physiologist, to determine your current physical capacity and establish specific goals for your treatment program; and make recommendations to your insurer.

Step 2:
Upon receiving insurer approval, your Accredited Exercise Physiologist will design your exercise physiology treatment program to be specifically tailored for your current situation.

Step 3:
You will receive instructional exercise video tutorials (demonstrating how to perform your prescribed exercises) to be discussed with your Accredited Exercise Physiologist via online video consultation.

Step 4:
Your Accredited Exercise Physiologist will continue to monitor your progress via online video consultation; making adjustments to your hydrotherapy treatment program as necessary to assist your recovery.
