Here’s what to expect when attending a virtual physical therapy session

What to expect from virtual physical therapy

Social distancing and shelter-in-place orders have quickly become the norm as we all work to stop the spread of the coronavirus. However, people in need of physical therapy need to be able to stay committed to their treatment. Even if you are self-isolating, it’s essential to stay physically active to promote a successful recovery for your injury or condition. 

Peak Performance is dedicated to helping our patients stay safe during this continually changing situation, which is why we’re now offering virtual physical therapy services with the help of telemedicine technology. Through our secure web-based platform, we’re able to provide personalized sessions with a professional therapist. 

Telemedicine is a growing trend in physical therapy, and there is good evidence that it can help patients get results and stay committed. Since this is likely a new experience for many people, we’re sharing this overview of what to expect from virtual physical therapy. 

Virtual physical therapy with a professional — what to expect

Virtual physical therapy is very similar to an in-clinic therapy session. You can have a thorough discussion with your therapist to ask questions about your condition and treatment. This is also an ideal platform for getting instruction and feedback for active therapeutic exercise. 

Patients attending virtual physical therapy sessions with Peak Performance therapists can expect: 

  • Safety and security — With virtual physical therapy, you can receive the care you need from the comfort of home. Our communication platform is secure and designed with the needs of therapy patients. 
  • A user-friendly experience — This software is compatible with most mobile devices and computers on all major browsers, with no need to install and configure a separate application. 
  • Pricing for every budget — Virtual physical therapy is covered by most major insurance as it is with an in-clinic visit. Our team also accepts credit and debit as well as Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) payments for Medicare, Medicaid and self-pay patients. 

You should also expect some minor differences between virtual physical therapy and in-office sessions. Any hands-on treatments or interventions will not be available virtually. But what you can expect is the same commitment to exceptional patient care from our talented team of therapists.
