I want to save time. I want to save money. I want less of a disruption in my work schedule. No, these aren’t the reasons people want a standing desk or something. They’re some of the reasons more and more people are seeking digital health solutions like virtual physical therapy (PT).
Fortunately, virtual PT can live up to many of these expectations. For instance, research has shown that patients recovering from a knee replacement can save $2,745 on average on their post-surgical rehab costs. There are even more reasons to turn to virtual PT for your digital health solutions.
Three reasons virtual PT could be the digital health solution you’re looking for
Virtual physical therapists are well versed in the many digital health solutions they can offer. That’s why they can offer you several reasons to try virtual PT that you may not have considered. Some of these reasons include:
1. Pain reduction effectiveness — Many people turn to physical therapy for help reducing a specific type of pain. They may be worried that virtual PT won’t be as effective as in-person physical therapy. Yet more and more medical studies are putting this worry to rest. One Journal of Medical Internet Research study reveals that patients reported a nearly 69% improvement in their pain after using a virtual PT platform for 12 weeks.
2. Its ability to furnish ongoing care — If you have an acute injury, say a muscle sprain, virtual PT can help you recover. For the many chronic conditions that require ongoing care, such as osteoarthritis, virtual physical therapists can help with this, too. They can meet with you regularly to check on your symptoms. In addition, your regular virtual PT visits can help you maintain the highest possible level of strength, function and flexibility.
3. Its high adaptability — New illnesses and conditions are popping up all the time. It wasn’t that long ago that none of us had heard of something called COVID-19, for example. Esports have had a huge rise in popularity recently, but they still lead to injuries. The flexibility of virtual PT allows it to offer people effective treatment for emerging issues like COVID recovery and esports injuries.
