STAY CONNECTED AT HOME

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, SOS has made the decision to temporarily close our doors. However, our team has adapted to the ever-changing situation and is now offering a creative and simple solution for overcoming physical distancing. We are proud to launch our virtual physiotherapy with all our clinicians to help our community stay strong through remote video assessments and follow-up appointments.

At SOS we pride ourselves in our expertise in exercise prescription, patient education and our ability to analyze movement. All of which are accessible though video consultations. You can expect to receive the same exceptional care through our Virtual Sessions as you would at any of our SOS clinics.

What is Virtual Physiotherapy?

Virtual Physiotherapy is an online appointment with your Physiotherapist to ensure that you are able to receive the highest possible quality of care from a remote location. Virtual Physiotherapy can be accessed via your smartphone or computer, which will allow you to perform your treatments from the comfort of your own home.

HOW DOES IT WORK

Step 1: Schedule your first appointments

Make an appointment by calling any of our SOS locations. Feeling unsure about Virtual Physiotherapy? No problem. Book one of our free 15 minute Virtual Physiotherapy consults. During this free consult we can answer any questions you may have and explain how Virutal Physiotherapy can help

Step 2: Welcome email sent

Check your inbox! You will receive a personal email from your Physiotherapist containing the date of your initial assessment. We will also provide you with our online intake and consent forms.

Step 3: Initial Virtual Physiotherapy assessment

This assessment will be taken with the same detail as you would expect from SOS. We will ask questions to help us identify the source of your pain. As well as a movement assessment to identify your most painful positions which will allow us to develop a personalized treatment program.

Step 4: Plan of Care

Upon completion of your assessment, your Physiotherapist will email you a plan of care outlining at-home treatments to decrease your pain and help you meet your goals.

Step 5: Follow Up

Your Physiotherapist will help you schedule follow up appointments to ensure you are meeting your goals! During these guided therapy sessions they will also progress your exercises and provide you with at-home self mobilizations.
