Introduction

We understand that living with a bleeding disorder can present unique challenges. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce a specialised programme tailored for people in Scotland over the age of 18 and living with a bleeding disorder: Virtual Physiotherapy. This innovative initiative is designed to empower individuals, enhance their physical well-being, and elevate their overall quality of life.

Overcoming Accessibility Hurdles:

For many in the bleeding disorders community, attending regular physiotherapy sessions can be a logistical challenge. Whether it’s the distance to the nearest clinic, scheduling conflicts, or the ups-and-downs of life with a bleeding disorder, in-person visits can be daunting. It’s time for an inclusive solution that prioritises flexibility, accessibility, and personalised care.

Introducing Virtual Physiotherapy:

Our Virtual Physiotherapy Project brings the clinic to your home through secure Zoom video calls. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Interactive Group Exercises: Connect with an experienced physiotherapist and up to eight other participants for dynamic group exercises designed to address specific bleeding disorders and associated challenges.
  2. Personalised Plans: Receive individualised exercise and therapy plans, tailored to your unique needs, under the expert guidance of our physiotherapist.
  3. Convenience: Say goodbye to long commutes and waiting rooms. Access the group exercises from the convenience of your living room.
  4. Supportive Community: Connect with peers who share similar experiences. Share knowledge, tips, and encouragement as you embark on this transformative journey together.
