Telehealth Consultations

TELEHEALTH CONSULTATIONS FOR MUSCULOSKELETAL COMPLAINTS- FREE OF CHARGE

See our Fees Page

 

Although the clinic is now closed for face to face appointments I am still here to help. We are now in a position to do video/phone consultations. To help alleviate the immense pressure on the NHS we are offering our new FREE OF CHARGE Telehealth services for any musculoskeletal complaints, rather than attempting to contact your GP or A&E during this time of crisis.

These Telehealth consultations take place via your smartphone or webcam, making them suitable for everyone self-isolating or social distancing as you do not have to attend an in-person appointment.

Melanie is an experienced and highly qualified Chiropractor  who is fully trained to assess you and offer advice, self-help guidance and support to facilitate your recovery, following best evidence-based care recommendations as those used by all musculo-skeletal healthcare professionals.

Melanie can offer support and advice for people of all ages, affected by a range of conditions including:

‪- Headache and migraine prevention
‪- Joint pains
‪- Minor sports injuries
‪- Muscle spasm
‪- Low back pain
‪- Neck pain
‪- Sciatica
‪- Rotator cuff issues
‪- Shoulder complaints

About Video Consultations

True – we are known for our hands-on treatment, but there is actually a lot we can do for people over a video link. We can take a full history of your problem and listen to how your pain affects your daily life. We can do a thorough examination by getting you to do tests we show you over  video, which will give us a really good idea of what is going on. After this, we can talk you through the source of your pain and give you lots of advice on do’s and don’ts to help your current pain – and just as importantly; a plan to get you back to doing the things you want. A lot of the time, the reassurance of knowing what is actually going on – as well as the power of feeling that with professional advice and guidance, you can do something about it yourself – is really powerful and helpful for our patients.

Most phones, iPads, tablets or laptops work great for this.

So whether you are an existing patient or a new patient to our practice, if you’re struggling and not sure where to turn to at the moment, then please get in touch and we can see if a video consultation might be appropriate for you.

Pricing

The normal fee is £35 for an initial consultation and £25 for a follow up (Free of Charge during Covid 19)– or if you are an existing patient of our clinics. We are really pleased to report that most private health insurers are realising the value of this and happily reimburse their members for tele-health consultations.
