Ascenti is an established provider of remote and online MSK physiotherapy services and has been providing these services to select corporate clients for a year already, having specially trained our 300 clinicians to treat patients through our Ascenti Physio app.
From this week anyone can book an online video consultation with a certified Ascenti physiotherapist directly through our website booking system. We are also offering free sessions to the over 65s who can apply for a free first appointment subject to availability. This offer is running for a limited period and appointments can be booked by completing a special form here.
The coronavirus outbreak has forced people to make enormous changes to their daily lives, such as working and exercising from home. These changes are necessary to protect us all against the spread of Covid-19, but also have the potential to negatively impact on the nation’s health.
With NHS resources rightly directed towards managing the Covid-19 pandemic, our online physiotherapy services can offer people rapid access to professional treatment and advice that can help with a range of related issues, including:
- Injuries, long-term conditions such as back pain or mobility issues that have deteriorated due to the change in lifestyle and being unable to access treatment.
- Pain due to working from home with a poor ergonomic set-up, for example back pain, neck pain, or a flare-up of an old injury or condition.
- Preventing injury and managing the mobility and health of those who may have less support accessible to them, for example if self-isolating due to age or disability.
- Pain or injuries related to new physical activities, such as lifting children or unsupervised online exercise classes.
Our online physiotherapy appointments are live one-to-one video consultations delivered using our Ascenti Physio app, where you will see the same certified and highly trained Ascenti clinicians that you would see in one of our clinics.
Our Ascenti Physio app also incorporates a variety of tools to help patients get the most from their treatment with us, such as goal-setting, exercise reminder notifications, demonstration videos and diaries that can be shared with our physios so that they can track progress.
Stephanie Dobrikova, CEO of Ascenti, commented: “The UK is going through a huge adjustment right now and the latest Government lockdown measures mean that more services need to be delivered virtually.
“We already know that our online physio service is successful, so we’re very excited to be able to now launch it to consumers through the Ascenti Physio app and to use this initial period to offer additional free support to people over the age of 65.
“We’re an organisation that’s motivated by making a difference to the lives of our patients, so the prospect of helping thousands of people to maintain their health in these difficult circumstances and whilst we all work together to prevent the spread of Covid-19, is hugely rewarding.”
Ascenti’s online physiotherapy appointments cost £35 for 30 minutes and can be booked here.
Free sessions for the over 65s can be booked here but are limited to one free session per person and are subject to availability.
