Are you in need of Telehealth services?
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been causing numerous health care facilities to shut down, we as medical professionals are diligently trying to serve our patients in the best ways possible without risking the spread of this disease. Telehealth therapy has presented itself as a great way to allow patients to continue receiving medical care in the comfort of their homes. By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we are able to keep both our patients and PT providers safe and healthy.

What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a way for medical providers, including physicians and physical therapists alike, to make sure that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location, such as their home.
At Fit Rehab Physical Therapy, our telehealth services offer a live appointment where you can meet and chat with our physical therapist about your treatment plan.
Telehealth services can be accessed via your smartphone or computer, and you will be able to perform your PT treatments from the comfort of your own home. You will also be able to track your progress and see how you are improving as your treatment goes on.
At any point, you can also message one of our physical therapists to ask questions or get advice about your condition.
You might be wondering what kinds of conditions can be treated and improved via telehealth services. Here are a few:
- Injury rehab
- Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, and other chronic conditions
- Sports medicine/athletic training
- Respiratory issues
- Post-surgical rehab
- Back pain
- Arthritis pain
- And much more
If your condition is not listed above, feel free to contact our office during business hours to find out if telehealth physical therapy is a good fit for you.

More benefits of Telehealth
In addition to allowing for the practice of social distancing, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, telehealth also has other benefits for patients.
As stated by the American Physical Therapy Association, just a few of these include:
- Patients typically in clinical or hospital settings could be managed from their homes
- Telehealth can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education
- Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes”
