Our clinic is closed to in-person visits amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but we remain committed to continuing care via secure, online osteopathic consultations from the safety and comfort of your own home.
Arrange a secure osteopathic telehealth (interactive video) appointment from the comfort of your home using your phone, tablet, or computer on our secure, encrypted Jane App platform. Schedule your appointment online, and be ready to go in a quiet room in front of your device at your reserved time.
Your Virtual Home Visit
Using Telehealth osteopathic consults we are able to continue to:
Review the history of your symptoms and function;
Examine and assess your problem;
Prescribe exercises for home care and self-applied treatment.
This service can support continuing treatment for both current and new issues. Telehealth appointments can be booked online via our Jane App.
TeleHealth can be a very effective way of managing your symptoms in the comforts and privacy of your own home. Virtual home visits (online sessions) are one-on-one with your Osteopathic Manual Practitioner. Each session will be tailored to your specific needs, allowing us the opportunity to assess and provide recommendations for you while practicing social distancing. Our virtual system is easy to use, and is safe and secure and can be accessed directly through your online Jane App booking account.
Is TeleHealth covered under my health care plan?
Many extended health care providers are now supporting TeleHeath sessions. Since every provider and policy is different it is important to check with your provider if you are hoping to be reimbursed for your session.
What can TeleHealth offer?
Home Workspace Assessment & Recommendations
With so many of us working from home, people are experiencing more aches and pains linked to the setup of home work stations. A video assessment can help you optimize your workspace, provide tips on ergonomic support, and prescribe exercises and stretches to improve your posture and maintain body alignment while working at home.
Acute Injury Assessment & Management
Online sessions can be used to virtually assess your injury and provide specific recommendations for care, which may include self care (to effectively reduce pain or swelling), exercises, or advice to see your primary care provider.
Management of Chronic Pain & Flares of Musculoskeletal Injuries
Virtual assessment and recommendations can be very effective, and may include coaching you through self-mobilization techniques, range of motion, stretch, and strengthening exercises, education on how to manage pain, and direct you to online resources.
Stress & Tension
Virtual sessions can be used to deliver advice on relaxation techniques, self-care, and online supports to help you in difficult times. Somatic emotional healing approaches can be employed to recognize and release physical tension that may remain in the body in the wake of stressful or traumatic events.
