Have you heard about Telehealth therapy?
In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused the closing of many health-care centers, we as medical practitioners are working tirelessly to provide the best quality care to our patients while limiting the transmission of this illness.
Telehealth has arisen as an excellent way for people to continue seeking medical services while being in the privacy and safety of their own homes. Through delivering treatment online rather than in person, we will keep both our patients and PT services comfortable and stable.
For more information on our telehealth services and how they may benefit you, feel free to call us, schedule a telehealth appointment with our website chatbot, OR click here to schedule your virtual appointment!
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a way for service and medical professionals such as doctors and physical therapists, to guarantee that our patients continue to get the best treatment available from a distant area, such as their home.
At Joint Effort Physical Therapy, our telehealth services offer a live appointment where you can meet and chat with our physical therapist about your treatment plan.
Telehealth programs can be accessed by smartphone or device, allowing you to complete physical therapy sessions from the convenience of your own home. You’ll also be able to track your results and see how you’re doing as your therapy progresses.
At any point, you can also message one of our physical therapists to ask questions or get advice about your condition.
Is Telehealth safe?
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
- Telehealth can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education
- Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes”
What issues and conditions can Telehealth therapy treat?
There are tons of conditions that Telehealth therapy can help to treat. Some of the most common ones are:
- Back pain
- Arthritis pain
- Post-surgical rehab
- Injury rehab
- Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, and other chronic conditions
- Sports medicine/athletic training
- Respiratory issues
If your condition is not listed above, feel free to contact our office during business hours to find out if telehealth physical therapy is a good fit for you.
