Physiotherapy Blog #1: SportsClinicPlus

 

Evidence-Based Therapy Centre is delighted to make an exciting announcement about a new collaboration with SportsClinicPlus.com.  SportsClinicPlus is a new web-based platform which provides an online library of high definition videos of physiotherapy exercises. EBTC are privileged to be one of a select number of healthcare providers who are trialling this exciting new product. This means that if you attend for physiotherapy and are given exercises to carry out at home, your physiotherapist can show you how to view high quality videos of those exercises. This helps to remind you of the correct technique and also helps to remind you to carry out the exercises. You can even view the videos on your Smartphone.

 

Aoife Ní Mhuirí, founder and CEO of SportsClinicPlus has a vision for the company – “to use multimedia and technology to educate sportspeople in prevention of injury, increase compliance of patients with their exercise programmes, offer targeted advanced functional rehabilitation for sports and deliver faster, more effective recovery from injury.”

 

These goals are consistent with our philosophy at EBTC where we aim to use the very best research evidence to provide rehabilitation strategies, delivered by clinical experts, using innovative methods to help our patients achieve their goals. I think that this is the perfect product for a modern physiotherapy service. Most of us will admit that when we visit the doctor or other healthcare professional that it can sometimes be a bit of a blur. All of a sudden you are out the door and thinking “now what exactly did he say…” or “what is it that is wrong with me again?” or “how many times should I do that exercise?”

 

At EBTC we recognise that this can happen and that during the first appointment in particular there can be a lot of information to take in. That’s why we do our best to keep medical jargon to a minimum and to back-up what we say with written information and video content where appropriate. This can be something as simple as following up the session with an email summarising what is the problem and the strategy for getting it better. Sometimes – with your permission – we take videos of you carrying out your exercises. This is why I am so excited about this new collaboration with SportsClinicPlus which provides a high quality web platform to supplement and consolidate the information from the face-to-face session with your physiotherapist. I would encourage you to take a look at their website www.sportsclinicplus.com and to watch the sample videos.
