More than 10 million people in the UK are currently living with pain as a result of a musculoskeletal condition, with physiotherapy being recognised as the best treatment option in many cases. Our new virtual presence is designed to give you fast, cost-effective access to your ScolioGold therapist as and when you need it. Our patients travel from all over the world to see us, and for those who are unable to travel to our clinics, we are bringing the clinic to you!
What is Virtual ScolioGold?
Let's face it: sometimes arranging appointments can be a real pain in the back. What we are offering you is an opportunity to get support from your ScolioGold therapist without the need for face-to-face visits, through an online programme which you can complete from the comfort of your own home.
What conditions can we treat virtually?
Our clinic is known for our specialist ScolioGold treatment (tailored for each individual scoliosis patient), which helps patients maintain a more centralised posture during daily activities. Our treatment draws on internationally-recognised techniques for scoliosis correction.
When you are completing your virtual group therapy or virtual check-up appointment, we can see, adjust and tailor your exercises specifically for you and offer you that intensity that may be lacking at home.
However, our virtual treatment is not just for those with scoliosis. We are also able to triage and treat a whole host of common musculoskeletal conditions, such as:
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Muscle pain
- Sports injuries
Virtual Group Therapy [£60 for 3 hours]
If you have experienced one of our group therapy courses, you will be familiar with exercising in front of other patients with the same condition as you, and our online group therapy is much the same. The only change you may notice is the size of the group.
Each group will have a maximum of 3 patients per 3-hour virtual session. These sessions will be held from 10:00 – 13:00 and 14:00 – 17:00 during this period of self-isolation. We pride ourselves on creating bespoke programmes for each patient dependent on their goals, so by capping the number of patients we can offer the best quality treatment for our patients.
Virtual Check-Up Appointments (1:1) [£60 per hour]
Our virtual check-up appointments will run very similarly to how they do in-clinic, and will only be held on a 1:1 basis with your preferred ScolioGold therapist. Our administration team will request only one thing from you: four photographs - one of your back while standing, one from either side in profile, and in the Adams forward bend position. This will allow your therapist to highlight any areas of focus for your therapy.
To do this, we will compare back to previous photos and scans that you have had. Your therapist will then take you through a detailed subjective history - we always like to know how your exercises have been going at home and all the new activities you've been doing, plus it's a good opportunity for you to tell us what you are hoping to achieve from the session (and of course in the long term too).
Once your session is complete, you will receive the following by email:
- A new check-up feedback form detailing any exercise alterations or instructions for new exercises
- A new home exercise programme to follow
How do you get Virtual ScolioGold treatment?
Virtual ScolioGold is accessible to all through our website or by getting in contact with our administration team by phone or email. If your ScolioGold therapist feels that you are not suitable for Virtual ScolioGold, we will arrange a face-to-face consultation at your earliest convenience.
