Telehealth Physical Therapy From Home During COVID-19
Last Update 5/13/2020
What is Telehealth Physical Therapy?
Telehealth is a live video appointment where you connect with us remotely using technology from home such as a telephone or computer.
What can the therapist do for me if we are not meeting in person?
Therapists will address and help you manage your symptoms, create home remedies for your impairments, ensure you are set up with a proper home exercise program, modify your home program, and progress your home program – much like we would do in person.
Therapists can also use video to analyze, correct, and modify movements, exercises, functional activities, and even address obstacles or issues at home that may be otherwise unknown or difficult for you to describe to us.
How does Telehealth work? What do I do?
We will schedule a telehealth therapy appointment time with you. You will then get an email or text with a website link that connects you to us through a secure online healthcare site. Click on it, and we will be there with you on your device!
