Telehealth appointments are now available at Malvern East Physiotherapy

Malvern East Physiotherapy is pleased to announce our telehealth appointments. You can be assured our physiotherapists will provide the same individualised care and best possible treatment plan that leads to long-term health and injury prevention.

What is a telehealth appointment?

A telehealth appointment is delivering your usual physiotherapy services through a video-call or telephone. It is a real-time one on one appointment. You will be able to see your physiotherapist and our physiotherapists are able to see and chat to you about your condition.

What do I need to do a telehealth appointment?

All you need is a phone or a computer or tablet device with internet connection.

We conduct our telehealth appointment using video conferencing apps such as Zoom, WhatsApp, Skype or FaceTime. We can even use PhysiApp which is physiotherapy specific software which allows us to demonstrate and provide exercise videos.

How do I set up my telehealth appointment?

Our friendly team or your physiotherapist is able to talk you through easy to follow directions to set up your telehealth appointment.

What to expect from your telehealth appointment?

Your physiotherapist will take a comprehensive history and ask questions relating to your presenting condition or complaint. Through a video consultation, we will also be able to observe and assess your overall movement and mobility.

By putting together your full history, we will be able to identify and diagnose your source of discomfort. We will take the time to explain this to you so you fully understand the issues and the best course of management and treatment.

As part of your telehealth appointment, your physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan which includes steps that you can take to alleviate and treat your condition and symptoms. This could include a range of stretches, mobility exercises, self release work and strengthening exercises to ensure that you manage your condition and feel better as quickly as possible.

Who is a telehealth appointment for?

A telehealth appointment is great for a wide range of conditions ranging from acute sporting injuries through to post-operative rehabilitation. In our current climate, it is ideal for anyone who would prefer to self-isolate or would like to stay at home as they are high risk.

To book your telehealth appointment with one of our physiotherapists, call our friendly team today.

Back to school 🔙📚

Last week we were fortunate enough to head back to uni and refresh our anatomy knowledge at @latrobeuni in the anatomy labs. 

Thank you to the Latrobe School of Physiotherapy for inviting us! Last week our team celebrated another great year. 

Whilst Melbourne’s weather had its own plans, we were still determined to keep with the theme of ‘Italian Summer’. We let our hair down to master the art of mixology 🍸🍹followed by an Italian feast. Friday morning Run Club with the team. Practicing what we preach!

Staying stronger, healthier and happier. This time last week, our team was nervously completing their final preparations for @melbmara . 

Congratulations to our physiotherapists and ME community who ran on the day.

Dilen and Michael completed their first marathons. Abbey and Lizzie smashed out their first half. Last Sunday, our team headed down to see our own Matt Warren win a premiership in the VAFA Premier Men’s Competition. Last week our team dedicated a full day to professional development and team building. At ME Physio we pride ourselves on collaboration to put you at the centre of everything we do. 

Our team covered the latest treatments for back pain, financial well-being and finished off the day with salsa dancing. 

Many thanks to our guests including James Schomburgk from @the2ndvisitphysio , Financial Planners Tony Vikram & Cameron Bishop and the @salsafoundation At ME Physio, our focus is on helping you get stronger so that you can keep doing the things you love.

For Tony and Joan, healthier and stronger is being able to navigate the iconic Coast to Coast Walk in the UK! We recently had the pleasure of hosting Elise Bujor from Women’s & Men’s Health Physiotherapy to discuss women’s health issues across the lifespan. 

Our team pride themselves on staying up to date to ensure you’re able to stay healthier, happier and stronger. Huge milestones over the past few weeks with both Tom and Jude from @delasallefc doing their first bit of running in their rehab. 

Tom is on the return from an ankle dislocation whilst Jude is putting in the hard work following a knee reconstruction. Last week our team enjoyed some friendly rivalry at the footy. 

With finals around the corner, some of our team can now safely make holidays plans for September. We recently had the pleasure of hosting the podiatry team from @sespodiatry. 

Our physiotherapists Michael and Abbey presented on rehabilitation following Achilles surgical repair and ankle surgery. Last weekend some of our team got together to complete the 10 km run @runmelbourne. There was no finish line picture as some were keen to run another 15 km!

Whilst running wasn’t for some - brunch was well received by everyone.

You Deserve to Feel Good.
