When you need help with managing pain from a chronic condition or an injury, it is often a good idea to visit a physical therapist for treatment. However, sometimes traveling to visit a physical therapist in person is not the safest choice because of obstacles like the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thankfully, you can do tele-health PT from your home instead.
What you need to know about tele-PT
Tele-PT is a service that enables physical therapists and patients to connect over a live, one-on-one, secure video call. Through this call, your physical therapist can verbally guide you through exercises, stretches and other motions pertinent to your treatment. They can visually demonstrate how to perform these activities and can provide instant feedback to your performance to make sure you get the most out of your treatment.
Tele-PT is also:
- Recognized — Telehealth has been a recognized health care service since 2019. Tele-PT strives to maintain compliance with HIPAA guidelines and is practiced within legal and ethical standards.
- Safe — Tele-PT can help reduce risks associated with traveling. For example, if your condition makes it unsafe for you to operate a vehicle, it is safer for you to stay home if you cannot arrange other transportation. Additionally, doing physical therapy at home through tele-PT reduces your exposure to public health risks, like the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Convenient — Tele-PT can fit easily into your schedule. You don’t have to take as much time to prepare yourself, to travel, to complete your appointment, and to return home.
- Effective — Studies find that the results of tele-PT are effective in helping people like you reduce pain, improve range of motion and recover from injuries.
