Carolyn Vandyken and Darryl Yardley recently recorded a live telerehab experience completing a spinal and peripheral assessment to assist you in this transition.
Meet Emily. A young high school teacher with a four year history of low back pain. Previous pelvic health physiotherapy and chiropractic treatment contributed to a loss of hope that her back pain could ever improve. What can we do for her on telerehab? As it turns out, a lot!
Meet Dino. A cross-fit athlete with a five-month history of shoulder pain. Is it structural? Can we effectively assess a peripheral joint and address high-level function through telerehab? Darryl does a thorough assessment taking Dino into his gym to look for comparable signs. Observe Darryl has he develops loading strategies that will help Brendan restore his capacity for ring dips and hand-stand pushups.
Watch these two telerehab assessments. Develop your confidence in providing this service to your patients.
Trust your skills. Build new ones. Ask yourself, what can I do differently?
