Introducing Telehealth Physical Therapy Treatment Options Available During COVID-19
As the situation with COVID-19 evolves, you may be aware that several city, county or state entities have implemented or are in the process of implementing ‘shelter in place’ orders for all non-essential activity. Physical and Occupational Therapy have been deemed “Essential healthcare services”. We have been permitted and encouraged to continue to operate in order to reduce pain, improve function and enhance the lives of people suffering from musculoskeletal and other ailments. Delaying treatment could mean additional expense, prolonged pain or further disability. Click here to learn more about the steps we are taking to help to prevent infection and the limit spread of the virus.
While our clinics remain open for in-person visits, we are proud to offer Telehealth for individuals who want to take additional safety precautions, or who are inappropriate or unable to do in-person visits. This is an excellent alternative solution to treat your pain or injury. Please read below to learn more about Telehealth as well as answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
