Virtual Care

Receive the Care You Need with Our Tele-Rehabilitation Services

Have you heard of tele-rehabilitation? In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been causing numerous health care facilities to shut down, we as medical professionals are diligently trying to serve our patients in the best ways possible without risking the spread of this disease.

Because of this, tele-rehabilitation services are a great option! By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we are able to keep both our patients and PT providers safe.

For more information on our tele-rehabilitation services and how they may benefit you, feel free to call our St. Laurent clinic at 613-680-4477 or our Orleans clinic at 613-424-4488, to schedule a tele-rehabilitation appointment with one of our therapists , OR click here to schedule your virtual appointment!

What is tele-rehabilitation (virtual care)? 

“Tele-rehabilitation (or virtual care) is the delivery of massage therapy services at a distance, by an information or communication technology such as video conferencing, when an in-person visit is not possible. A client can expect the same safe, effective, and ethical care as an in-person visit and the physiotherapist must comply with all regulatory requirements.” – College of physiotherapists or registered massage therapists of Ontario

How do virtual appointments work?

At Anatomy Physiotherapy Clinic, each of our therapists are linked up with a telehealth platform. Prior to a client’s first appointment, we provide instructions on how to proceed, including how to download the required software. As long as the client has access to a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop with a camera, we are in business!

Virtual appointments are also a great way for our therapists to see a client’s home and/or work set-up, which will allow them to tailor programs specific to the space or equipment that is available to work with.

Regardless of the type of situation our clients are facing (e.g. self-quarantine during a pandemic, mobility issues, etc.), we can make use of our tech-savvy world to help!  

Are virtual appointments covered by insurance?

Most private insurance companies accept claims for virtual appointments, however we recommend that you please check with your specific provider first if you have any questions or concerns about coverage.
