COVID-19 restrictions are forcing more of us to do our work virtually. However, there are still plenty of patients who think in-person sessions are the only way to get the physical therapy they need. Fortunately, we are offering virtual care services in addition to in-clinic visits so our team can continue to treat your aches and pains if you need to remain in your home.
Virtual physical therapy is intended to help you get the care you need when you can’t leave the comfort of your own home. Moving to virtual physical therapy can be very beneficial for you, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.
Three benefits patients can expect from virtual physical therapy
Three ways virtual physical therapy benefits you include:
- Affordable costs — Virtual physical therapy care is covered by most major insurances in the same way as an in-person visit. 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.
- Reduced anxiety — Getting to the therapy clinic on time. Seeing people you know in the waiting room. These and many other factors can cause anxiety for patients who use in-person therapy. Virtual physical therapy removes these sources of anxiety by allowing you to do sessions in your own home.
- Decreased commuting time — Driving anywhere can be a hassle in busy cities or suburbs. Traffic can cause you to lose precious time getting to and from the therapy clinic. Additionally, rural patients are less likely to have a therapy clinic nearby. One study reports that there are about 30 therapists per every 100,000 rural patients; this can mean they spend more time driving to and from their sessions. Virtual physical therapy cuts out the drive time. This gives patients to spend more time doing other necessary tasks.
