The clinic, situated at the University of Kent Sports Centre on the Canterbury campus, remains physically closed while following government coronavirus guidance. However, Vicky has a wealth of physiotherapy experience and expertise and is continuing to assist and support people.
What to expect from an online consultation
You can choose from a variety of online methods including Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp, or a simple phone call.
You will be asked questions regarding your injury and depending on the symptoms, a tailored assessment will be completed. We will then discuss a treatment plan to help you to work on your symptoms at home. We have videos on the Kent Sport YouTube channel and exercises that can then be emailed to you afterwards to help remind you of technique.
Although some of the best results come with a combined manual therapy and exercise approach, we must adapt to the current situation and it is important to keep niggles and pain at bay, so that when Kent Sport re-opens, we can continue moving forwards rather than starting from scratch.
“I have recently taken advantage of the free online consultations that are available through Kent Sport Physiotherapy clinic. Although I was unsure whether Vicky would be able to help me online, she diagnosed my problem almost straight away during our first Zoom meeting. She then sent me some exercises which I have been doing daily and which have been helping to reduce the pain I was in. Vicky has also given me a follow up consultation just to check that the exercises are working. It has been really good to know exactly what was causing my pain and to be able to talk to someone so knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you Vicky for all your help!”
