At LHMPTI, we understand that accessing quality healthcare services is important, even when circumstances make it challenging to visit a physical therapy clinic in person. That’s why we’re excited to offer Telehealth, a convenient and effective way to receive expert care from the comfort of your own home. 

What is Telehealth Physical Therapy? 

 Telehealth Physical Therapy, also known as virtual physical therapy or online physical therapy, is a form of healthcare delivery that allows you to connect with our experienced physical therapists remotely using video conferencing technology. Through secure and confidential video consultations, we can assess, diagnose, and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and movement disorders. 

 How Does Telehealth Physical Therapy Work? 

 Initial Evaluation: Your journey begins with a virtual initial evaluation, where you'll meet with one of our skilled physical therapists via a video call. During this session, we'll discuss your symptoms, medical history, and goals. You'll also have the opportunity to raise any questions or concerns you may have.
 Assessment and Diagnosis: Using video conferencing, our physical therapist will guide you through a series of movement tests and assessments to evaluate your condition. We may ask you to perform certain movements, demonstrate range of motion, or provide information about your pain or discomfort. By closely observing your movements and listening to your symptoms, we can develop a thorough understanding of your condition and make an accurate diagnosis.
 Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment findings, our physical therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. We'll explain the goals of the treatment plan and discuss the recommended interventions, exercises, and strategies to address your condition.
 Virtual Treatment Sessions: Subsequent treatment sessions will be conducted via video calls. Our physical therapist will guide you through a series of exercises, movements, and self-care techniques to help you manage your symptoms, improve mobility, and promote recovery. They will provide detailed instructions, demonstrations, and real-time feedback to ensure you're performing the exercises correctly and safely.
 Education and Self-Management: Throughout the telehealth sessions, we'll provide you with education about your condition, self-care strategies, and techniques to manage your symptoms. We'll empower you with the knowledge and tools to take an active role in your recovery process.
 Transition to In-Person Care: If your circumstances change, your physical therapist will work with you to develop a plan to transition to in-person care at one of our LHMPTI clinic locations.

Benefits of Telehealth Physical Therapy: 

 Convenience and Accessibility: Telehealth Physical Therapy allows you to receive expert care without the need to travel to a clinic. It eliminates transportation time and costs, making it a convenient option for individuals whose schedules or mobility limitations do not lend themselves to in-person care.
 Improved Access to Care: Telehealth removes geographic barriers, making it easier for individuals in remote or underserved areas to access specialized physical therapy services. You can connect with our experienced therapists in your area regardless of your location.
 Comfort: Telehealth appointments can be conducted from the comfort of your own home, creating a relaxed environment for your sessions.
 Personalized Care: Our physical therapists will provide one-on-one attention and personalized care during each virtual session. They'll tailor the treatment plan to your unique needs and adjust the interventions as necessary to ensure optimal progress.
 Continuity of Care: If you've already started in-person physical therapy at one of our clinic but are temporarily unable to attend in-person sessions, Telehealth Physical Therapy offers a seamless transition, allowing you to continue your care and progress towards your goals.
 Cost-Effective: Telehealth Physical Therapy can be a cost-effective alternative to in-person visits, as it eliminates the need for transportation expenses and reduces time away from work or other commitments.
