TELEHEALTH: SERVING PATIENTS IN THESE TROUBLING TIMES We are grateful that physical therapy has been deemed essential in Massachusetts during the Covid-19 crisis. Elliott Physical Therapy’s five locations are open and seeing in-clinic visits when needed. However, the approval of telehealth physical therapy has been extremely beneficial because we can now also provide physical therapy services remotely. that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location.

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 during this quarantine. You will also be able to track your progress and see how you are improving throughout your treatments – without coming directly to our clinic. At Elliott Physical Therapy, our telehealth services offer live consultation where you can meet and chat with your physical therapist about your treatment plan. You can follow your exercises and stretches that you are expected to complete each day through doxy.me, FaceTime and Skype. You can also use this app to access ongoing helpful tools and tips, such as our blogs – you can even use it to send these tips to a friend or family member who may also need help!

Because of this, telehealth services are the best possible option for us at this time. By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we are able to keep both our patients and PT providers safe. For more information on our telehealth services and how they may benefit you, feel free to call us, schedule a telehealth appointment with our website chatbot, OR go to our telehealth appointment page link to schedule your virtual appointment!
