We are excited to be offering Video or Phone Consultations, also known as TeleHealth or TeleRehab appointments! Particularly during those uncertain times, we want to continue to offer our clients the quality care and connection we strive to foster with every in-person interaction.
You can connect with your Physiotherapist, Chiropractor, Naturopathic Physician or Kinesiologist through our secure online platforms or by phone.
While we take pride in our Hands On approach at the clinics, we all must recognize that one of our best tools is our knowledge and ability to engage the Patient in the Healing process. While by no means ideal, we have firm believe that we can help you and make the best of the situation.
What we can do:
We are currently using Jane (our booking and billing system) for TeleHealth Video Assisted visits.
Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and Naturopathic Medicine are approved to be delivered online and are covered by most Benefits Providers and ICBC / WCB. Kinesiology (Active Rehab) are covered by ICBC only.
Appointments would have similar “direct contact” time with the therapist as regular “in-clinic” appointment. The therapist may take extra time to build and send an online exercise program or provide other subscriptions or educational materials.
We have a firm believe that we can maintain our high quality standard of care for any condition. Any good treatment starts with a proper screening; we can do a good job of making sure what is your next step. Our practitioners had dedicated their lives to learning, and we are happy to share our knowledge with you. We can do our best to have a plan for you.
1.The key is to know what to get the advise for. Self diagnosing rarely works.
2.We got some experience doing this already – we are now an experts of thinking outside of the box
3.As regulated Health Care providers, we can review and update “official” recommendations such as notes for work, recommendations to ICBC / WCB and recommendations to purchase home care equipment.
Surprisingly, yes. We found out that this way we focus only on active / pro-active care strategies, while avoiding some of the “nice, but not important” treatment modalities. Focusing on empowerment, exercise and education helped quite a few people
In the first 2 weeks since clinic(s) closure(s) om March 19th, we have delivered 395 TeleHealth appointments. Keeping a significantly reduced Clinical Team, allowed us to create good collaboration and ongoing education among all practitioners.
TeleHealth can be delivered over the phone. While Video can be beneficial, we can still get by talking over the phone and engaging in dialog with the patient. While it may be harder to demonstrate some things, we can still deliver exercise programs via Email, Fax, at clinic pick up or sending it to your preferred family or friends.
We would love to continue your care using all our resources. The bottom line – we can not. And nobody else can. While those modalities and hands on care in general can not be replaced, we can find other alternative strategies how to at the very least not to get worse in the meantime. Often, exercises, self mobilization strategies, and simple tools that can be bought online are good enough. While Coast takes pride in our top of the line equipment, it is in the end of the day is only as good as the practitioner operating it. And that can carry over to TeleHealth environment as well.
Of course! One of the advantages it can be delivered anywhere! The advantage for local residents to choose us, is that we will be able to transition to in-clinic service on the day after(if neccessary)
