Moving Our Program From Your Home to Your Home Screen

Joel Digris and Telehealth Physical Therapy with Achieva Rehabilitation.

What is Online Physical Therapy and How Can It Help Me?

Simply put, “Telehealth Physical Therapy” (or “Virtual Physical Therapy”) refers to physical therapy services that are provided over a technology platform, rather than our normal one-on-one visits in your home.  

​Don't miss a beat in your health during this unprecedented time when health is the most prized asset of all!  This program came about at the onset of the epidemic.

 

People were afraid, uncertain and doing their best to stay present with their family and kids. They needed physical therapy but had no great option until Telehealth. 

What happened was the advent of a system of delivery of physical therapy that is really effective...we can still give you amazing advice, education and one-on-one guidance to help you move better, feel better, and live better.  

5 reasons Online Physical Therapy is a great option:

​1. Feel Your Best: When it's time to leave your home, leave feeling your ultimate best. This is going to give you the confidence to thrive throughout the year. 

2. Save Time: Online Physical Therapy visits only take a computer, tablet or phone. You don't have to drive anywhere or buy equipment. You get to meet with the PT and then start implementing all the tools, exercises, techniques and routines right away. Your transformation is only a click or two away. 

3. Privacy: Maybe you have concerns about walking into a clinic or what other people may think of you. You may worry that others will be watching you doing new or intimidating exercises. 

 

Well guess what? Now you don't have to worry about what anyone thinks. It is simply only you and your PT. Privacy is our number 1 concern and you will conduct your visit on a HIPAA safe platform.
 
4. Accountability: The number one reason people love doing the online PT sessions, is because it holds them accountable to the program they are doing to help transform their bodies. This allows them to be consistent. We all know that transformation takes consistency and we are so excited to be able to hold you accountable in the comfort of your own home.

 

This holds especially true when most folks are succumbing to vacation mode way of living. But we all know how we feel after vacation.... usually we want or need to get moving again and clean up our diets after that. I challenge you, Why Wait?

5. It REALLY WORKS: Most people are skeptical at first and think that it won't work for them. Maybe they think that they need hands on their bodies to get better. Well guess what, there is so much we can do now that you will get you to your transformation. Outcomes are great and studies are proving this...ask us for proof!

 

Other phrases referring to telehealth physical therapy might include:

Here is how Telehealth works…

  • As long as you have internet service, it's literally as easy as turning on your phone, your tablet, or your computer and clicking on a few buttons.  You see us and we see and hear you just like we would if we were together in your home. 

 

  • Each session will last about 30 minutes-60 minutes depending on your specific needs and the quality of life outcomes we are moving towards. During the session we will get an update on your progress and move your program ahead just like in a normal PT session.  We will have you go through your exercises with 1-on-1 instruction and correction if needed.  And of course, upgrade exercises as able.

  • The treatment will be conducted using a simple video system on your phone, your tablet, or your computer.  Our program uses Zoom.com

Will you help me find out if my insurance will pay for this?

  • Please message us here for your FIRST ONLINE PT SESSION and we will contact your insurance company to get your detailed benefits.  With the current times, most insurance companies have approved this program without question.

Can I use my laptop or an iphone or ipad?

  • We've been using our Online Physical Therapy Program with many different devices with our patients.  This includes all types of laptops, computers, ipads, iphones, android devices.  As long as you have internet, we are 99.9% sure it will work.  The only thing we are more certain of is that you will get better!

Will I need equipment?

  • Our program rarely requires equipment.  You should set up in a room with a comfortable amount of space to move, comfortable clothes and we will figure out the rest.

Will this work with people like me? I'm a little skeptical...

  • Studies support what we've seen... great results with patient with pain, dizziness or vertigo, mobility challenges from movement disorders, balance issues, joint replacement.  We will be able to determine your likelihood of success during the FIRST ONLINE PT VISIT.

I'm sure that I will have questions...can I call you to get quick answers?

 

  • Our biggest policy is our Grandma Standard, meaning that we are going to treat you with the same care and advice and attention that we would give to our own Grandma.  So, anytime Grandma calls, we answer...same with you.  We are available at 1-888-929-7677 before you start, during your time with us, and after you meet your goals.

How can you help me get better if you don't have equipment?

  • We have never needed equipment.  You get better because you care more about your health than being in a gym with fitness equipment.  Our experience in our In-Home PT Program has proven 100s of times that our teaching, assessment, and education are way more valuable than gym equipment.  See what our past patients have to say to support our methods...We always think their words are more important that what we say anyway...Click HERE.
