Online physiotherapy is a type of physiotherapy, which has experienced a full flowering during the pandemic of the new coronavirus COVID-19. The purpose of the research was to carry out a study of the implementation of the online physiotherapy in a medical institution, which was based on the literature review. In the theoretical part, the descriptive or the descriptive research method was used and in the empirical part, the quantitative research method was used. Within the study a non-standardized questionnaire was used, developed according to the set of the research goals. The data was obtained from patients who performed a physiotherapeutic medical service in a medical institution with the help of the physiotherapists. The results were processed with the program Microsoft Excel. In this study 17 respondents were included and of these 14 were female respondents (82,35 %) and 3 were male respondents (17,65 %) ranging from 18 to 73 years. We found out that all participating patients were satisfied with online physiotherapy and even the use of technology did not cause them problems. Tele-physiotherapy in certain circumstances may be an alternative approach to the classical physiotherapy or at least as a complement to it in specific circumstances (COVID-19).
