Telehealth

Tewkesbury’s local experts in clinical chiropractic & remedial massage.

Call today on 01684 291 261 to arrange a free chat with Aidan (our chiropractor).
We'll let you know if we can help you, and if we can't, who can.

We have signed up with Zoom, video conferencing software; and can now offer "Telehealth" - remote consultations by video.
Yes, if you’re in pain, but can’t leave the house, I can still help!
If you're thinking about phoning NHS111, your GP clinic or visiting minor injuries – then please, instead of increasing the NHS workload, contact us instead – triage (our equivalent of 111) is free, and we are still available for hands-on treatment when necessary.

Zoom Telehealth

We're very new to this, and are still working things out; but it means that we should be able to provide you with some level of care and advice remotely; and to minimise face-to-face time where appropriate.

Most of what we do in your chiropractic appointments isn’t about the hands-on treatment – it’s about helping you manage the pain and the injury through advice and coaching, exercise prescription and pain management ideas etc.
 

If you wish to book a virtual consultation, please let us know by email (backinaction[ANTISPAM]@live.co.uk), or via Facebook; as we are “working from home” the clinic phone line will no longer be answered. If you know anyone who is in pain, and considering phoning NHS111, their GP clinic or visiting minor injuries – please ask them to reduce the NHS workload, and contact us instead – triage (our equivalent of 111) is free, and we are still available for hands-on treatment when necessary.


Initially, I will be offering 3 levels of online telehealth appointment.

1. A short consultation to assess and “triage” your musculoskeletal case – judge how serious it is. We can then decide if your case can be dealt with remotely, in person, or in a prescribing/hospital setting.
The primary purpose of this is an attempt to reduce the load on the NHS, as they have bigger fish to fry right now. If you would normally call your GP practice for something muscular, boney or jointy, consider calling us instead.
There will be no charge for this consultation.

2. We will also be offering long sessions for new patients, where we can take a case history, assess the quality of your movement, have you point to the painful area etc, and get as close to a diagnosis as possible. From there we can discuss options, such as home-exercises and self-care, reassurance and education as to what’s going; or potentially, to come into clinic and finish the case file with a physical examination and hands-on treatment.
This will be charged at £40 - ⅔ the price of a new patient consultation
If you then have to come in for hands-on care, then that will simply be the remaining £20.

3. The final level of remote consultation will be of medium length, for existing patients, wanting to touch base, tinker with the home care, reminder of the situation, assess the safety of a proposed activity etc etc
This will be charged at £26 – ⅔ the price of a follow-up appointment.
