Virtual physical therapy visits are making it possible for patients to complete their physical therapy appointments from the comfort of home.
What is a telehealth physical therapy appointment?
Telehealth physical therapy is simply physical therapy services that are provided over a technology platform, instead of in a clinic. Utilizing video conferencing through a computer, tablet, or smartphone, a licensed physical therapist will work one-on-one with you to assess your condition and provide real-time feedback. They can also provide modifications and recommendations on current programs and exercises, and help you continue your therapy progress without disruption or regression.
What are the benefits of telehealth physical therapy?
Prior to your session, your clinician will send you an introduction email with tips for the session and a link to join the telehealth visit. You can join the visit on your desktop or mobile devices. If you want to join it on a mobile device, make sure you download the MedBridge GO app beforehand. App download can be found here:
