Online physiotherapy is an evidenced-based assessment and treatment method that is widely used in the private and public healthcare sectors and can be delivered through video or telephone consultation. .
Whilst it cannot replace all face-to-face hands on treatment, it is an effective and appropriate method of care for the majority of MSK conditions and assessment/ongoing treatment of these.

what to expect
summits online physiotherapy
Summit physiotherapists already deliver virtual physiotherapy assessments and treatments (in line with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and NHS England recommendations) for private clients as well as insurance patients that have difficulties in attending face to face clinical appointments
As part of our planning and response to the coronavirus outbreak, our dedicated Online Physiotherapy Service Lead has devised a comprehensive training programme that has now been rolled out to cross-train all our physiotherapists to effectively deliver high quality Online care
The video call technology that we use allows our physiotherapists to:
Conduct a face to face assessment/treatment sessions digitally
Live stream appropriate exercise videos for the patient to replicate under expert supervision
Our preferred (and default) method of delivery is via our Zoom link video platform but our therapists are also set up to fall back to telephone consultations should this be patient preference.
Benefit to you
Online physiotherapy has been proven to deliver positive benefits to patients and comprises of:
Education and advice to manage and improve patient symptoms
Guided self-management and progression, including:
Exercise therapy and rehabilitation
Self-joint mobilisation techniques
Self-trigger point techniques and other soft-tissue treatment techniques
Functional/movement re-education strategies
Delivering Online physiotherapy as an interim alternative to face-to-face treatment will allow continuity of care for our patients, on-going screening for red/yellow flags and risk factors, prevention of symptom regression, provide ongoing support on how to manage symptoms flare ups, and promote positive outcomes
Frequency of sessions will (as always) be based on the clinical needs of individual patients and will be adapted based on the physiotherapists’ treatment planning. This will be tailored to the knowledge that patients will be receiving on line physiotherapy.
We do not anticipate a change to average session numbers overall.
what to expect...
I'VE SUFFERED VARIOUS RUNNING RELATED INJURIES OVER THE YEARS AND THESE GUYS HAVE NEVER FAILED TO GET ME BACK RUNNING AGAIN. THEY'VE ALWAYS GIVEN GOOD ADVICE TO PREVENT ANY RE-OCCURRENCE OR TO AVOID NEW INJURIES OCCURRING. I'VE BEEN TREATED BY VARIOUS DIFFERENT STAFF MEMBERS AND ALL HAVE BEEN COURTEOUS, ATTENTIVE AND VERY COMPETENT. ANY TIME I HAVE HEARD OF A FRIEND OR COLLEAGUE WHO NEEDED SOME PHYSIO TREATMENT, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN QUICK TO RECOMMEND SUMMIT PHYSIO DUE TO MY POSITIVE EXPERIENCES WITH THEM.
HAVE USED SUMMIT FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS FOR VARIOUS RUNNING AND CYCLING INJURIES. I HAVE SEEN VARIOUS MEMBERS OF STAFF DURING THIS TIME AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS. ALL STAFF ARE COURTEOUS, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ABLE TO EXPLAIN IN SIMPLE TERMS THE TREATMENT REQUIRED FOR THE INJURIES. AFTER RECEIVING TREATMENT, THEY ALSO EXPLAIN HOW TO AVOID REOCCURRENCE WITH THE HELP OF EXERCISES. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRACTICE TO ANYBODY
I SAW ANDY AFTER A SUCCESSION OF POOR ADVICE AND A SUBSEQUENT DISCECTOMY LEFT ME WALKING LIKE FRANKENSTEIN. HE SUPPORTED ME WITH A PROGRAMME OF REHAB THAT ALLOWED ME TO GAIN MY CONFIDENCE BACK AND ULTIMATELY MY NORMAL LIFE. NOTHING IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE AND HE ALWAYS GOES THE EXTRA MILE. EFFECTIVE REHAB IS AS MUCH ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT AS IT IS THE PHYSICAL AND HIS HUMOUR IS PRICELESS IN THIS AREA. I HAVE SINCE WALKED THE 3 PEAKS AND CAN LIVE RELATIVELY PAIN FREE WHICH I NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE. I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT ANDY AND CANNOT RECOMMEND HIM AND SUMMIT PHYSIO HIGHLY ENOUGH
5 STAR REVIEW FOR THE FRIENDLY GREETING AND EFFICIENT SERVICE FROM LOUISE ON RECEPTION WHO BOOKED OUR APPOINTMENT, THROUGH TO THE PROFESSIONAL PHYSIO ASSESSMENT, SERVICES AND AND AFTERCARE FROM CORRINE. THANK YOU BOTH. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
CORINNE IS AMAZING. VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY. I FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE AND I ALWAYS FEEL BETTER HAVE MY SPORTS MASSAGE. I GET QUITE A FEW NIGGLES FROM BEING A STUDIO FITNESS INSTRUCTOR BUT CORINNE ALWAYS SORTS THEM OUT. I WOULDN'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE.
