April 3rd, 2020
Virtual physical therapy benefits

The possibilities of virtual physical therapy have been an exciting topic in the physical therapy field for some time now. And now, the coronavirus outbreak and resulting COVID-19 pandemic have pushed this new delivery method for treatment to the forefront of care. 

Rehab Access is offering virtual physical therapy in addition to in-clinic visits during this ongoing health crisis as part of our commitment to the health and safety of our staff and patients. While there are some differences compared to in-office visits for this approach, it’s important to understand the key benefits that this treatment delivery method can offer. 

Key benefits of virtual physical therapy 

Using an internet connection and the audio and video capabilities already present in your phone, you can meet with a professional physical therapist in real time as if you were right there in the clinic. Although certain treatments, such as manual therapies, cannot be performed over this method, there are a number of important benefits that virtual physical therapy can offer. These include:

  1. Effectiveness — A study presented to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons reported a 91.2% satisfaction rating among patients who received virtual rehabilitation after surgery. This helps to ensure patients like you that virtual rehabilitation is an effective option.
  2. Convenience — You can receive personalized attention from a licensed and trained therapist, right from home. 
  3. Affordability — Virtual physical therapy care is covered by most major insurances. Our team 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.
  4. Safety and security— Rehab Access uses a secure web-based platform built to protect patient privacy. Virtual physical therapy also helps you maintain social distancing to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

 

If you schedule virtual physical therapy with Rehab Access, we promise you will receive the highest level of care from our team as if you were right there in one of our clinics.
