Their expert Physiotherapy team treat all Pregnancy and Post Natal Physiotherapy conditions as well as offering online clinical pilates classes for pre and post natal women.
As an essential service, the clinic is currently open for business and in-house appointments. Their new Telehealth service, however, means mums can access the program from the safety and comfort of their own home.
Each Telehealth consult is an ideal way for women to check in with an expert about any concerns they might have rather than ‘Googling’ and getting misinformation.

Rebates now apply for Telehealth through Medicare and Private Health.
How do online physiotherapy consultations work?
Telehealth physiotherapy involves consultation over a secure video platform to provide assessment, diagnosis, a treatment plan and follow-up treatment as required.
Before your consultation you will be sent a subjective questionnaire asking for details about your condition. Your physiotherapist will review this prior to asking you further structured questions.
From the answers to these questions your physiotherapist will form a clear idea of your probable diagnosis.
You may be asked to demonstrate certain movements or tests to assist with confirmation of the diagnosis. If the clinic is ever unsure of a diagnosis they will refer you to a clinic for an in-person assessment.
You don’t need any special equipment or technology - a smartphone, tablet or a computer with Firefox or Chrome browser is compatible with the Telehealth platform. Instructions will be emailed to you but don’t worry - it is very simple!
if you are still apprehensive about Telehealth, rest assured that many aspects of physiotherapy management do not rely on complex machines or hands on therapies. There is increased evidence pointing towards the value of quality education and supervised rehabilitation plans.
This kind of intervention lends itself to being delivered in an online format, and there is extensive research evidence to support the efficacy of tele-rehabilitation programs for a variety of conditions.
