Virtual Physiotherapy

WSM provides virtual physiotherapy appointments to the comfort of your home, with the same high-quality physiotherapy care that people expect from Waterloo Sports Medicine.

What is Virtual Physiotherapy or Tele-rehabilitation?

Virtual physiotherapy is an online appointment where a video call is used to connect both the physiotherapist and the client. The video call is encrypted and the data is not stored anywhere at any time. This ensures that the virtual appointments are PIPEDA and HIPPA compliant which addresses the major concerns surrounding telehealth.

Why choose Virtual Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists are experts at exercise prescription, client education and observation of human movement and function, all of which are accessible through video consultations.  During the appointment, a Registered Physiotherapist observes your range of motion and functional movements equivalent to an in person assessment. Our mission is to continue to provide high quality, client-centered care via video consultations.
