Physiotherapy is normally thought of as a “hands-on” form of healthcare. But in reality, three of the four central components of physiotherapy are not hands-on at all (or don’t need to be!):
Individualized home exercise programming as well as instruction on stretching and self-administration of soft-tissue massage or frictions.
Education on activity and lifestyle modification in order to treat and prevent a large variety of conditions, injuries, and illnesses. This also includes education on the use of home-based modalities, includingheat/cold/electrical stimulation depending on what the patient has available at home.
Health assessment, screening, and referral, including initial assessment, ongoing assessments, and medical triage.
In fact, exercise therapy and education are arguably the two most important and effective tools in the physiotherapist’s clinical toolbox, and these are ideally suited to TeleRehabilitation.
