Telehealth

What is Telehealth/Telerehab?

Telehealth/Telerehab is a one-on-one session held with you and your physical therapist which takes place remotely on a secure telecommunication platform (ie: video conferencing). This method of treatment would involve either a smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer that has access to a web camera and microphone with internet access.

Our telehealth platform is EASY to use. Just click on a link from the email we send you - and that's all. No account set up, no passwords, no portals.

You'd be surprised at what we can accomplish with telerehab.  We can discover a lot about what is causing your issues from hearing your symptoms and watching you move on video.  There are many tests that we can also get you to do on your own that will assist us in developing a treatment plan for you.  A hands on approach isn't always necessary!

Telerehab can provide us means to:

  • Discuss and evaluate your symptoms including pain, numbness/tingling, weakness, balance loss, joint range of motion issues, post-surgical issues, swelling/lymphedema
  • Perform a detailed assessment
  • Provide a treatment plan including therapeutic exercise (ex. stretching, , strengthening), self-massage techniques, movement modification, home modifications and more
  • Education:  exercise program prescription, proper form with exercises, safety issues, self-management techniques, compression garments

 

 

What our patients are saying:

"I was worried when the COVID crisis hit that I wouldn't be able to keep my appointments for my post-surgical and lymphedema issues.  I am so glad that my care will not be delayed thanks to your telehealth visits!"
