The best care
The outbreak of the Coronavirus has seen a necessary shift in the way we work at Houlbrook Physiotherapy from face to face treatments into a more virtual world in order to keep our patients, many of whom are within the vulnerable category of the over 70's, safe.
We understand that this is not always an option for everyone and as such we have been trialling different technologies in order to make it as accessible to as many as possible. We are hoping to do the majority of treatments via conference calls either with Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp chats but where these aren't available then we will also be able to speak to patients by telephone.
These are very uncertain times and we are acutely aware that many of our patients are feeling very vulnerable. It's essential that we take care of our mental wellbeing in times like this. If you are feeling anxious we can offer you a range of advice relating to anxiety management and techniques that you can use to help reduce this.
We will also be hosting a once weekly balance and strengthening group aimed at over 65's, via Zoom. Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others - either by video, audio only or both. All you need is Wi-Fi and you will be able to access the group via the zoom link that we will provide. The class is approximately 45 minutes in duration and runs in a 7 week block. You get 7 classes for the price of 6 which is £45*. We hope that it helps everyone to stay on track with their physical fitness, maintaining
strength and balance and reducing the risk of falls but in the comfort of your own home.
If you feel you would benefit from a more personalised programme then please get in touch so we can make a bespoke programme for you to follow remotely under our guidance through virtual/ telephone treatments.
*If you join mid way through a block you will be charged for the remainder of the classes at £7.50 per class.
