Book a telehealth consultation for services during the covid19 lockdown

We will be offering clinical services via telehealth for both existing bookings and new patients/injuries. We will be in touch if you have an appointment booked. Stay safe.

How does an online appointment work using telehealth?

 
We are now utilising specialist rehabilitation software called telehealth so we can continue to work with you remotely, to achieve the best possible outcomes for your health and well-being. Connecting via telephone or video chat is a breeze. If you have any questions or need help we can easily talk to you about this process prior to your appointment. It is a very simple way to keep on top of your injury management. It is an exciting new way for us to work together and support you.

How does it work?


1. Book an appointment: First, you need to book an appointment with us just like a normal appointment you can call, email or book online 

2. We send you a link to connect with us.  The day before your appointment we will send you a text reminder and an email with a link to telehealth services (ensure you check your junk mail). Click the link at your appointment time and your clinician will be there to discuss your needs. If you are using your mobile or tablet you can download these apps ahead of your appointment for better interaction with your clinician – https://www.physiapp.com

3. We chat online, just like we would in person: We can share tailored exercise videos, set goals and routine alerts, discuss your injury and management plan and recommend ways you can utilise everyday items at home to keep you moving and progressing in a positive direction. Watch this video to see how a Telehealth Appointment works 

What services can we continue to provide?

  • Private and ACC Physiotherapy, Initial and Follow-up consultations.
  • Podiatry Consultations
  • Pain Management Services
  • Cancer Rehabilitation
  • Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
  • Osteopathy Consultations
  • Nutrition Assessments
  • Working From Home Ergonomic setups
  • Physical activity and fitness programmes
  • Mental Conditioning and Wellbeing Consultations
  • Vocational Rehab Services – SAW/BTWOnline
  • Pilates Classes and 1 on 1 – please contact gym@activehealth.co.nz

What is the cost?

We acknowledge the very difficult circumstances for all New Zealanders at the moment and wish to offer prices reflective of that for the Alert Level 4 period. 

Our team has worked hard to provide a package of care that will continue to serve the Active Health community. Our mission statement and commitment to you as always is to provide quality holistic health care in a supportive, professional, fun and successful environment.

Find a time that suits you now – and we will reach out with everything you need to connect with us at that time.

Physio Stretches for Gardening Aches & Pains https://activehealth.co.nz/physio-stretches-for-gardening-aches-pains/ Mon, 01 Feb 2021 00:23:39 +0000 http://host2123.temp.domains/~pharmad1/getmorelocalcustomersco/activehealthdemo/?p=163 The post Physio Stretches for Gardening Aches & Pains appeared first on Active Health.

Have you been enjoying the garden this summer? Have you also experienced some aches and pains as a result? Try these stretches from Physiotherapist Brad to help elevate tightness in your hip flexors, and open your chest and shoulder back up. If you are having persisting aches or pains, book in to see us at one of our many locations.

Hip Flexor Stretch-


Kneel down in front of a chair with your back toes on the chair (or without for easier stretch)
Check your front knee is over your ankle.
Squeeze your bottom and push the hips forwards slightly to stretch the hip flexor
Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat on the other leg.

Sliding Wall Angel-
Start with your elbows at shoulder height, press the back of your arms and hands into the wall as you slide your arms up the wall. Keep pushing your back into the wall as you move you your arms. Repeat this 5-10 times.

Lying Back Extension Hold-
Keep your feet on the floor, and squeeze you bottom and core to support your lower back. Then activate your back muscles all the way along the length of your spine to lift your shoulders, head and chest up away from the floor and hold this top position for the required duration. Try 20 second holds.
