How Do Telehealth Physical Therapy Services Work?
Physical therapy via telehealth enables physical therapists to deliver high-quality treatment to their patients both conveniently and safely. At a time when treatment and progression toward individual rehabilitation and wellness goals can easily be interrupted, modern software makes it possible to help patients implement a plan of care without the need for in-office visits. All you need is access to video communication (FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, Google Duo, WhatsApp, etc.)
Most insurance plans cover telehealth physical therapy, and copays are typically lower than in-person visits. When you schedule a telehealth appointment, please select the ‘Telehealth’ option in the location field.

Who Should Consider Telehealth Physical Therapy?

- Chronic pain management
- Cancer rehabilitation

What to Expect From Your Telehealth Visit
Your first telehealth appointment will be very similar to coming into the clinic. One of our expert physical therapists will perform an initial evaluation to fully understand the scope of your injury or condition. In many cases, our therapists can diagnose virtually. Afterwards, they will guide you through a series of stretching techniques, strengthening exercises, and other treatment methods to administer to yourself.
If this is a follow-up visit, you will check in with your physical therapist, discuss the success of your home exercise program, and ask any questions you have regarding treatment. Your therapist may have you demonstrate some of the prescribed exercises to ensure proper form. You can expect initial assessments to take approximately 30 to 60 minutes and follow-ups to take 15 to 20 minutes.
