Jeff LeBlanc, Physiotherapist at EP Physiotherapy – pt Health has been offering virtual physiotherapy here for the past few weeks.
Today, we’re talking to Jeff about his experience with this service so far.
Q: Tell us about the type of treatments you can provide through virtual physiotherapy.
A: Through virtual physiotherapy, I am able to adequately assess and treat musculoskeletal conditions through quality education, exercise prescription, as well as everyday tips to help get pain under control.
A: The patient experience so far has been quite positive. At the end of each session patients always seem to be appreciative of the time spent together and more confident on how they can help fix their condition.
Q: Can you share your favourite story of how you helped a patient with virtual care?
A: Over the past few weeks providing virtual care, I have seen major improvements with patients’ pain, mobility and function.
Just seeing the confidence in their own abilities grow and seeing that they know they can achieve their goals throughout this whole process is my favourite part about this new and exciting type of care.
