Telehealth – your online Physio now available
Need to see your Physio but unable to get into the practice?
We now have an alternative! We have launched Telehealth, an online Physio service to provide Physiotherapy consultations over video.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a live video-conferencing technology which enables a client to have a private video consult with their chosen Physio.
Even before the impact of COVID-19, there has been a growing consumer demand for access to video-consultation services provided by Physiotherapists. There is now evidence that shows video consultations are cost effective, safe and well-received by patients – especially by those living in rural and remote areas, or who have other forms of access issues due to age or disability.
Our doors are still open, but if you can't come to us, we can come to you through Telehealth. This will allow you to continue treatment with your Physio and stay on the road to recovery – with movement being as important as ever!
Whether you need a short, medium or long consultation to suit your situation, we will be able to consult and treat through Telehealth. Given the impact the COVID-19 virus is having on people and their current lifestyle, we are discounting our standard fees for Telehealth appointments to ensure our clients don’t fall behind in their treatment.
How does it work?
To access this service, you will simply need a computer or smart device with an internet connection and camera. We will send you a text message with a secure ID login and access to a private video consultation with your preferred Physio.
We’re here to help you on your journey to recovery to get you moving again, whether that be in a practice, or via video if you can’t get to a practice.
How To Book:
- Simply contact your Back In Motion practice via the number at the top of page.
- Book in a time for your consultation which can be short, medium or long depending on your situation.
- Once you have made your booking, payment can be made over the phone.

- Click 'Join Consultation' to be connected to your Physio.
Tip: Don't forget to check your video and microphone are working prior to your appointment to ensure a smooth consultation.
As per the Australian Physiotherapy Association, media release here, private health funds access has been fast tracked for members to use tele-physiotherapy consultations while Australians’ movements are restricted by the COVID 19 pandemic. Several private health funds have begun providing coverage for individual physiotherapy Telehealth consultations from Tuesday 14 April 2020.
We have put several measures in place to ensure you can continue to receive the best treatment whether it be in practice, over the phone, or via video chat.
