What are telemedicine physical therapy services?

Telemedicine physical therapy services

When you are suffering from an injury or chronic pain and stiffness, one of the treatment choices you have is physical therapy. However, when you can’t travel due to self-isolation because of the COVID-19 virus or because of your physical condition, it’s hard to get the treatment you need at a clinic. This is where telemedicine physical therapy services come in.

Telemedicine physical therapy services are offered by physical therapists like those at Peak Performance to help you receive physical therapy treatment from the safety and comfort of your home. Telemedicine physical therapy appointments take place on a live, one-on-one video connection through a secure platform. Using telemedicine, your physical therapist can guide you through your treatment at home so you can treat your aches and pains when you are unable to travel for treatment.

Preparing for telemedicine physical therapy services is simple

Anyone can prepare for a telemedicine physical therapy appointment, whether or not you have experience with video calls. You need a few basic items:

  • A communication device with video capability, such as a laptop, smartphone, tablet or a PC with a webcam
  • A reliable internet connection
  • Comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows for freedom of movement for exercises and stretches

Additionally, you’ll need to make sure you are set up for your appointment in a room with space that’s free of clutter. Your physical therapist will let you know if you need anything else for your appointment, like a sturdy chair to help with balance exercises. 

Telemedicine physical therapy services can benefit many people

Telemedicine physical therapy services can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Chronic headaches
  • Post-surgical recovery and more

If you’re stuck at home dealing with aches and pains, talk to your doctor or physical therapist about telemedicine physical therapy and how it can help you get the treatment you need.
