Here’s what to expect from virtual physical therapy with a professional physical therapist

What to expect from virtual physical therapy

While we continue to monitor the spread of coronavirus and follow CDC guidelines, this global pandemic has already changed our lives in some fundamental ways. As businesses close their doors and employees are encouraged to work from home, social distancing has become the norm. This leaves many people who are in need of treatment, including physical therapy, in a challenging situation. 

If you’re confined to your home, staying physically active and focusing on your recovery is just as, if not more, important than it was before. Fortunately, there’s a solution that lets you receive the guidance and support you need while still being able to practice social distancing. With virtual physical therapy, you can connect in real time with a professional physical therapist without leaving your home. To give you a better understanding of what to expect from this new form of treatment delivery, please read over the following guide. 

What can you expect from virtual physical therapy? 

Virtual physical therapy, also called teletherapy or virtual physical therapy, is accomplished over the internet with video-enabled online devices like smartphones, tablets and computers. At Specialists in Sports and Orthopedic Rehabilitation, we use a secure communications platform called designed for the needs of physical therapy.

Here’s what you can expect from this virtual approach to physical therapy: 

  • A user-friendly platform — We want to make it as simple as possible to connect with a therapist. 
  • Privacy and security — Our virtual physical therapy is HIPAA compliant and offers the same individualized one-on-one care you would find in our clinics. 
  • A budget-conscious cost structure — Many insurance carriers are covering virtual physical therapy the same way they would an in-person visit. Contact us to learn more. 

While some treatments, such as manual therapy, are not available virtually, you can expect a seamless experience for core therapy treatments like strength and stability exercises, stretches, balance training and postural therapy.
