Telehealth refers to electronic communication between a healthcare practitioner and a patient for the purpose of facilitating, improving and enhancing treatment he/she is currently receiving. With Telehealth, the patient will be able to communicate successfully with the practitioner when it is physically impossible to visit a practice.
By no means should Telehealth replace or be used as an alternative to physical therapy, but as a guide to assist the patient in managing their pain until physical therapy can continue.
With Telehealth consultations, Dr Jacques will discuss your current discomfort and dysfunctions and be able to guide you to through the bio mechanics of the dysfunction and how to avoid, isolate, manage and strengthen the affected area. It is a great tool for assisting with home- care and exercises, advice and second opinions.
