MANAGING CHRONIC PAIN
PFO can help address some of the ongoing problems with painkillers and opiate issues. The online environment is ideal to help people manage their chronic pain. We work alongside “The Pain Toolkit” to help promote supported self-management. This is a recognised guide for self-management recommended in Pain management programmes.
NPA members serve a section of community that are non-ambulatory and struggle to leave the home. PFO has a strong focus on patient wellbeing and patient choice, access to online services can be a vital link for such patients and similar to other supporting schemes such as prescription home delivery, we aim to make the patient the centre of focus and help build strong, lasting links to the services NPA members provide.
REACHING BUSY PEOPLE
Additionally, time pressures within busy households means people often struggle to set aside time (fitting around work commitments for example) to attend a treatment session that will improve their situation, especially where interventions are early as possible.r such patients and similar to other supporting schemes such as prescription home delivery, we aim to make the patient the centre of focus and help build strong, lasting links to the services NPA members provide.
Accessible 24/7 helpdesk – email@example.com – for pharmacies and patient’s any query will be replied to within 24 hours and we have a wealth of information freely available on website: www physiofastonline.co.uk.

Watch some patient feedback
|“Yesterday I had my initial 45 minute appointment with PFO and was very pleased with how it went. The physio lovely and immediately put me at my ease. She soon diagnosed the problem I had with my knee and spent time explaining to me the best way forward. The online consultation was very easy and straightforward and worked well. There was a suggested a program of exercises and within 30 mins of our session ending, I had received an email with the exercises.The exercise sheet is very easy to follow with diagrams as well as text and a link to YouTube video. Also included was an exercise diary making it easy to keep track each day. I have just completed my first days exercises and feel pleased that I am finally doing something to regain my fitness after months of limping around. I would recommend this online service to anyone who is in need of professional, friendly advice. I only wish that I had done it earlier.” – Sandy McNeil
|“This was the ideal way to get treatment for my sports injury. The booking process was very easy, and there were no issues with joining the session online. Alex was really thorough and professional in assessing my injury, and the use of the physiology app made it very easy to understand what had gone wrong and what I needed to do to recover. Seeing videos of the exercises I needed to do and having a follow up training plan and app to monitor progress is ideal, as in the past I haven’t been very consistent with following my physio’s advice! Would definitely recommend PFO and the team.” – Michelle Scoones
