Providing virtual physiotherapy service to enhance recovery
*Virtualphyisio partners mobile network to provide a link with patients in Nigeria
Global virtual physiotherapy service provider, Virtualphyisio, has appointed renowned practitioners in different countries to provide simultaneous multiple treatments for Nigerians requiring physiotherapy.
Consequently, the firm has signed an agreement with mobile telecoms operator, MTN to facilitate the link between patients in Nigeria and specialists in different parts of the world through short message services and other virtual platforms.
The firm in a statement signed by its Media Consultant, Sam Eferaro, said: “This means that people requiring treatments for physical conditions such as stroke, arthritis, spinal pain (including neck, mid-thoracic, and low-back pain of neural and muscular origin), among others, now have the opportunity of being assessed by different specialists across the world just in one session and in the comfort of their homes.
“Our Consultants and frontline practitioners standing by in Nigeria, South Africa, Florida (USA) Dublin (Ireland), Rwanda, Belgium, among others, will provide comprehensive evaluations and follow up treatment, where possible, thus saving scarce foreign exchange by reducing financial implications of overseas treatment and reduction in health tourism. This will also result in a reduction in hospital burden of care, unnecessary waiting time, overcrowded hospitals and clinics, consultation time, and costs of treatment.”
The statement further disclosed that the organisation has registered partner outlets in different parts of the country where patients could also be referred to continue a wide range of therapies when necessary.
“All that is required is for clients to reach us through short message services (SMS) to +27739898869 and our physiotherapists on standby in different parts of the world will attend to them through phone calls, WhatsApp, and other virtual platforms,” it noted.
