We provide 24hr Emergency ONLINE Contact via iPhone FaceTime:
as the changes in Manitoba Emergency rooms happen, clients have stated they just don't know where to go upon any orthopedic injury; back pain, car accident, sports injury, fall at home
...most take a number, and wait at Pan Am (where you will receive excellent care)
We would like to offer another option for those orthopedic injuries, minus the 'wait time'...as we can
listen your story, like any other orthopedic interview; your patient history
observe your injury site, your movement or lack thereof, evaluate immediate function
and is return to activity possible, or is a next day physical assessment necessary?
You may need a brace, heat or ice, crutches or just a first aid kit.
ACUTE care; for that 'weekend warrior', injured during a sporting event without sports medicine coverage, in pain after gardening or snow shovelling at the cottage or those that require basic first aid or taping consultation.
EXERCISE planning; for those that require specific, post surgical or return-to-activity exercise planning to get back to their normal activities of daily life, possibly functional training training specific to a sport or task or even onsite, as you exercise, personal technique education.
ERGONOMIC education; for those that want individual, immediate ergonomic solutions when the pain arises, an appropriate task evaluation at that given moment can provide tremendous, immediate insight into the cause n effect of your biomechanics at work, rest and play!
Even if you've made it to the ER,
you're probably waiting at the pharmacy for your prescription; we can make a referral
to a Sports medicine professional (with an actual appointment time) or
we can refer you to a service partner;
to have your prescription filled and delivered,
or provide the appropriate brace to enjoy the rest of your weekend, and not worry about waiting in ER
If you are in the majority and use an Apple iPhone with FACETIME capability; I can provide immediate and appropriate, education services to get you through the day, until you can see your healthcare provider. You will have to allow yourPhysio to take live photos via Facetime (adapt your Facetime settings; to allow 'live photos').
