Telehealth/Virtual Visits

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we as medical professionals are diligently trying to serve our patients in the best ways possible without risking the spread of this disease. We have increased our cleaning protocols for in-home appointments, but also wanted you to know:

We are offering Telehealth!

By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we are able to keep both our patients and PT providers safe.

What is Telehealth?

 

You may be wondering what exactly Telehealth is. Essentially, it is a way for us to make sure that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location. 
 
Telehealth will consist of a 1:1 physical or occupational therapy session with our therapist through a secure HIPAA compliant video and voice call. Telehealth services can be accessed via your smartphone or computer, and you will be able to perform your PT or OT treatments from the comfort of your own home during this quarantine.
 
There are numerous conditions that can still be treated and improved via Telehealth services, including, but not limited to:
  • Arthritis pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Post-surgical rehab
  • Respiratory issues
  • Sports medicine/athletic training
  • Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, and other chronic conditions
  • Injury rehab
  • And much more
In addition to allowing for the practice of social distancing, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Telehealth also has other benefits for patients. As stated by the American Physical Therapy Association, just a few of these include:
  • Patients typically in clinical or hospital settings could be managed from their homes
  • Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes
  • Telehealth can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education
