Interested in virtual physical therapy? Here’s what to expect

What to expect from virtual physical therapy

With the current crisis surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and coronavirus, social distancing and self-isolation have become the norm. However, that hasn’t stopped people from needing the care they had been previously receiving, especially in the case of physical therapy. If you are confined and sheltering at home, it’s absolutely critical to remain physically active to help the recovery process for your injury or condition. 

To help our patients stay safe during this public health crisis, Holland Physical Therapy is now offering virtual physical therapy services with the help of remote technology. Telemedicine is a growing trend in physical therapy, and now it’s more relevant than ever. We understand this is likely a new experience for most patients, and we want to help you have a better understanding of what to expect. 

What to expect from virtual physical therapy with a professional therapist

In many ways, virtual physical therapy is surprisingly similar to an in-clinic therapy session. You can still have in-depth discussions with your therapist about your condition and treatment goals, and you will still be able to receive detailed instruction and feedback for therapeutic exercise. 

Patients undergoing virtual physical therapy sessions at Holland can expect: 

  • An easy and user-friendly platform — Our virtual physical therapy appointments are designed to be simple for our patients. All you need is an internet connection and a communication device capable of video and audio communication. 
  • Safety and security — While social distancing practices are in effect, you can receive the care you need from the comfort of home. Our virtual physical therapy is secure and designed with your privacy in mind. 
  • A convenient and budget-friendly cost structure — Virtual physical therapy is covered by most insurances as it is with an in-person visit. You can also cover your services with credit and debit as well as Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) payments for Medicare, Medicaid and self-pay patients. 

Of course there will be some differences. For example, manual therapy and other interventions are not available through virtual physical therapy, but the benefits and motivation you can get from consulting with a therapist and performing exercises can be substantial in the current health environment.
