Stay on track with Bodyneed physiotherapy



The Bodyneed team are excited to offer you the popular 'Telehealth' service! This means you can continue to receive the excellent Physiotherapy injury support and advice from our Senior Physiotherapist, Sonya Ginty, from the comfort of your own home.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a convenient way of delivering medical related services, such as physiotherapy. Your Consultation is conducted using the secure and renowned Doxy.me platform. All you need is an internet connection and screen with camera (laptop, tablet, or mobile). You will be sent an appointment time, and with a simple click on the link you will be taken into Sonya's waiting room, ready to begin your private one-to-one video consult with her.

How a Telehealth Consultation Works 

You do not need to suffer with physical pain due to injury without a plan forward whilst you are in Lockdown! 

Telehealth Consultations ensure that you receive the correct diagnosis, plan, and follow up that you need for your injury when you are not able to physically see your physiotherapist. The expertise, compassion, and experience of our Physiotherapist, Sonya Ginty is transferable through the platform of Telehealth.

Sonya will discuss your area of concern, asking and assessing your answers to her diagnostic questions.

In your face to face remote consult you will be able to demonstrate to Sonya where your pain is, and together review what your triggers are. When recommending your injury management and recovery plan forward, Sonya will be able to demonstrate the exercises she would like you to undertake, and review your interpretation of those.

Benefits of a 'Telehealth' Consultation 

  • Telehealth offers a convenient, viable solution when you are not able to physically meet in person.
  • By nature of this respected online service, it means you will have no commute time, no trying to find a car park. 
  • Instead you have instant online access to your private one-to-one scheduled consultation from the comfort of your own home.
  • You will be able to book a time that fits in with your current at-home schedule.
  • You will receive ongoing support to ensure effective injury management and recovery.


What to expect to receive in your Telehealth Consult 

Your face to face video Consult offers you:

1. A comprehensive, professional assessment and diagnosis of your injury
2. Advice on the management of your condition, including demonstration of exercises (both by the physiotherapist, and your interpretation of those)
3. An at home exercise programme tailored to your injury, including access to specific comprehensive exercise videos
4. Follow up Consultations to review your symptoms, your progress and exercises as needed
5. Live review of your exercises, offering you tips on adapting and adjusting your technique for best results
6. Referral onto additional health professionals, X-rays and specialists where appropriate.

Why book a Telehealth Consultation? 

When it is not feasible to have a meeting with your Physiotherapist in person, a Telehealth Consultation will ensure that you are not feeling left adrift, uncertain, and in pain with your injury. You’ll leave your Online Consultation with a feeling of comfort, and a treatment plan relevant to you, your injury, and current situation. Any exercises we give you to carry out at home are designed to accommodate your level of mobility and your lifestyle.

Sports Physio


Does your Physio do Sports Massage?

Yes if its appropriate for your condition. We no longer employ sports massage therapists and as such no longer offer it as a stand alone service. 

How is physiotherapy different to sports massage?

Physiotherapists are Healthcare Professionals, Sonya Ginty is a sports injury specialist.

Physiotherapists are trained to diagnose your condition and form an appropriate management plan according to your goals and needs.

Treatment can include a variety of techniques including massage, acupuncture/dry needling, taping, joint mobilisations, and tailored exercises. 

What can I expect from my first appointment?

First appointment will include a consultation and physical examination. Sonya will diagnose the condition you present with, and suggest a Management Plan (Treatment & Exercises).

Your Management Plan also begins within that first session.

Your Management Plan can typically include hands on treatment, in the form of joint mobilisations, acupuncture or massage, combined with taping.  

You are likely to be provided a tailored exercise programme to complete in your own time.
All treatment varies according to your injury, medical history and personal preferences. 

If Sonya thinks physiotherapy is inappropriate for your condition she will refer you on for investigation, or to see a specialist or suggest a different route of enquiry. 

Does your Physio use acupuncture?

Yes if you have no contra-indications and it is agreed appropriate for your condition. 

Does Your Physio do dry needling?

Essentially yes, dry needling is a form of acupuncture and Sonya is a trained acupuncturist for the treatment of pain.

Dry needling and acupuncture are used to help reduce muscle spasm and reduce levels of pain. Dry needling acupuncture facilitates the release of your body’s own endorphins and chemical mediators of pain into your system. 

Why do I need a 45 minute initial appointment?

See answer above re 1st appointment , 30 minutes will mainly involve the consultation and diagnosis. 
Shorter follow up appointments can be completed in 30 minutes if requested. 

Can I have taping as a stand alone treatment? 

Yes this can be organised as a stand alone treatment with short consultation in a 30 minute appointment. Typically this is appropriate preceding  sporting events and competitions.
