Telehealth or telemedicine is a rapidly growing part of healthcare today. It improves access and allows for greater efficiency. Although the majority of what physical therapists do involves their hands, we can still treat and educate you on your symptoms via video chat resources such as, Facetime, or Skype, or via phone call. Over 80% of diagnoses are made after obtaining a good history of your symptoms. This means you can describe your symptoms, answer our questions, and we will know the best course of action for you afterwards.
What can telehealth do?
After setting up an appointment, we will conduct an examination with you via phone, Facetime, or Skype. This allows you to inform us of the nature of your symptoms and allows us to ask the important questions. All of this can be conducted in the privacy of your own home. All you need is a good phone or internet connection.
After the examination, we will determine the best possible plan of action for you. We can prescribe exercises to alleviate your symptoms and address the source, educate you on daily medications to help you live more comfortably, give you advice as to the best plan of action to take, assist in setting up follow-up appointments with specialists near you. You don’t leave a telehealth consultation empty handed.
Telehealth can benefit many and is perfect for treating people in regions with limited access to healthcare. We can address chronic issues and sudden injuries, especially when information is needed immediately.
Please give us a call to set up a consultation or if you have any questions. We can save you time, money, effort and give you answers in one setting
