Telehealth services include, but are not limited to: • Arthritis pain • Back pain • Headaches/migraines

In times like these, with increased stress, pain, and limitations in movement, can make life miserable. However, just because you can’t get out to physical therapy, doesn’t mean that we can’t come to you, right through your own computer or mobile device! We are now able to offer you a way to continue the benefits of your physical therapy treatment, in the comfort of your own home with cutting-edge Telehealth services. For more information on our Telehealth services and how they will benefit you, feel free to call us and schedule a Telehealth appointment with our website chatbot, OR go to our Telehealth appointment page link to schedule your virtual appointment! How will I benefit from Telehealth? You may be wondering what exactly Telehealth is. Essentially, it is a way for your therapist to evaluate your movement, discuss your symptoms and progression, and work with you one on one, with functional movement exercises to relieve pain, and improve your ability to move pain-free, all from a remote location. Telehealth is a tool we are using at our clinic to get you the physical therapy you need, so you can feel better during these uncertain times. With Telehealth, everything you need from your physical therapist can be conducted from the comfort of your own home via your smartphone or computer. Have a question you need to ask your physical therapist? Looking for advice about your current condition? Want to track the progress you’ve been making? Telehealth makes all of this possible for you, while still ensuring that you are safely distancing at home! With our TelePT services, we are able to treat any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing. Some common conditions treated through

• Post-surgical rehab • Respiratory issues • Sports medicine/athletic training • Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, and other chronic conditions • Injury rehab • And much more 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 • Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes

• [TelePT] can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education

WE’RE STAYING CLEAN!

PATIENT SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT EXERCISE ESSENTIAL In order to be healthy, there needs to be a large emphasis on movement. When your body is flexible, strong, well-balanced, and fueled by a nutritious diet, it is able to fight infection and reduce the impact of viruses. We are dedicated to helping you live the best life you can. During this time, if you cannot make it to your physical therapy appointments, continue your exercises at home. We care for you and remember you are part of our physical therapy family. The best way to keep your body healthy during this time is to stay moving and reduce inflammation. Being sedentary and making poor diet choices has the potential to hurt your immune system and make you a target for sickness and disease. 9 ways to strengthen your body against viruses like COVID-19: 1. Wash your hands. 2. Decide to get up and get moving. 3. Eat nutrition rich food. 4. Drink plenty of water. 5. Don’t smoke. 6. Get a good amount of rest. 7. Stretch. 8. Take frequent breaks for breathing exercises. Inhale and exhale deeply. 9. Continue your home exercise program 2-3 times per week.
