Many physicians have closed their doors to healthy patients who have issues like joint pain, back strains and other musculoskeletal issues because all focus is on COVID-19
and preventing the spread. All elective surgeries like knee replacements have been put on indefinite hold also. Our offices
are essential, open and following CDC guidelines to keep everyone healthy but if you do not feel comfortable coming in, many insurances will pay for live telehealth visits over your computer or smart phone.
How does Telehealth PT really work?
- Even without putting our hands on you, PTs are experts in evaluating joint and soft tissue injuries. By asking the right questions and instructing you through different movements to test for weakness or pain we can often make the right diagnosis over the phone.
- We also know when it is something that needs immediate medical attention and can then get you to the right healthcare professional.
- We can provide instructions on ways to decrease your pain and advice on what not to do to avoid further injury. We can also demonstrate, prescribe and email home exercises to help you heal.
- Telehealth Physical Therapy is also ideal for those patients who are waiting on surgery. We can keep you safely exercising so you are best prepared for the big day
