Why Choose Telehealth for Your Physical Therapy
Now you can do physical and occupational therapy from the safety and comfort of your home. Connecting with a physical therapist through a secure, two-way video-call system on a computer, laptop, smartphone, iPad or tablet. All you need to do is schedule an appointment! We’ll give you a link and you’ll be ready for your therapy session.
Telehealth is just like coming in for a visit to our clinic but, it is done through a computer or smartphone. Whether you underwent a recent knee replacement surgery, have any sort of chronic condition, joint pain, or chronic pain, this cutting-edge technology will allow an experienced physical therapist to treat you virtually. In this virtual environment, a physical therapist will educate you and give you the exercises and training you need to improve your current state and reduce pain. This patient-centered program is all about you; you’ll be empowered and trained by a professional physical therapist who will give you the activities and strategies you may need to do the exercises properly. Through this secure video call system, they will be able to provide monitoring and evaluation to ensure a quality experience that allows you to feel better, and faster with long term results.
Whether you’re staying home, out of town, or can’t make your appointment, telehealth has:
- Seamless interface with a licensed clinician throughout your appointment
- Real-time feedback, assessment, and guidance from therapists
- One-on-one care with your physical or occupational therapist
- HIPAA compliant, encrypted video messaging assuring your virtual safety
