Covid-19 has forced us to change how we approach healthcare. It’s often no longer appropriate to visit a hospital or go into your local clinic, no matter how severe the pain, due to the possibility of catching and/or spreading Covid-19. This meant that thousands of people had to suffer in silence whilst at home until lockdown measures eased.

A virtual appointment is not too dissimilar from a face to face consultation, and come with lots of benefits too. We will talk through your medical history, perform triage and then
Various systematic reviews have been conducted in the field of telehealth and patient outcomes, showing extremely positive results. Interestingly, results were often as positive as those who went in to see a therapist in person.
Those that have been with At Health since our inception know that we’ve been offering telehealth appointments long before we went into lockdown due to Covid-19. This isn’t a field we were forced into because of unforeseen circumstances, but because we know it can help and we believe in it. Whilst we passionately believe in manual therapy, we also know that it can be easy for patients to fall into the trap of becoming overly reliant on us. Your health requires your participation, and this is why we believe telehealth is in its element. We can only show you what to do, but you have to do it. We’ve found that those who choose telehealth take control of their health and the results speak for themselves.
