Virtual physical therapy offers many benefits — here are three of them
All of us have plenty of things to be nervous about right now due to coronavirus. Getting laid off. Maintaining the appropriate social distance. These are just some of the things on many people’s minds. One thing you don’t need to worry about is getting the physical therapy you need.
Franklin Rehab is choosing to address such worries by offering virtual physical therapy in addition to our in-clinic services so you can get treatment for your aches and pains from the comfort and safety of your own home
Virtual physical therapy allows patients to interact with therapists over the internet. It’s also called telemedicine or virtual physical therapy, and sessions often use live video and audio links similar to a Skype call. Getting physical therapy virtually can have several benefits for patients.
Three benefits that virtual physical therapy can offer
COVID-19 has made it less safe for everyone to go out right now. However, the risks for many therapy patients are much higher than average. This is because many patients have issues that can weaken their immune system. In turn, this can make them more susceptible to infections. Here are three benefits that virtual physical therapy can offer people:
- Treatment in a safe and comfortable environment — Everyone should feel relaxed and safe in their treatment environment. Whether you need to stay at home to self-isolate during the viral pandemic or are unable to travel safely, you can stay at home and get the treatment you need in an environment you’re familiar with.
- Personalized treatment — Our physical therapists at Franklin Rehabilitation always personalize our treatments to each patient. This is no exception for those who use virtual physical therapy. During your virtual physical therapy session, you will follow a personalized plan your physical therapist will develop for you to help you reach your recovery goals.
- Affordable costs — Virtual physical therapy care is covered by most major insurances. Franklin Rehabilitation 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.
