Three big benefits of telemedicine physical therapy

benefits of telemedicine

When you’re dealing with aches and pains, one of the best choices you can make is visiting a physical therapist for treatment. Physical therapists are licensed health care professionals who specialize in a variety of treatments to help you recover from pain and improve your range of motion. However, it’s hard to get the physical therapy treatment you need when you can’t leave your home.

Fortunately, for people who can’t leave their homes or prefer to stay home, there is telemedicine physical therapy.

Telemedicine physical therapy is a service offered by physical therapists in which they can communicate with you and treat you through a live, one-on-one video call. There are many benefits to treating your aches and pains this way. Take a look below at three of the big benefits of telemedicine physical therapy that we think you’ll like:

1. Telemedicine physical therapy is safe

Some people have injuries and conditions that make it dangerous to drive or to deal with public transportation. Some people can’t leave their homes due to social distancing or self-isolation protocols. Regardless of what your safety concerns are, telemedicine physical therapy can help you still receive the treatment you need.

2. Telemedicine physical therapy is convenient

Telemedicine physical therapy is easy to set up and use. All you need is:

  • A working communication device with audio and video capabilities, such as a laptop, smartphone, tablet or computer with a webcam attached 
  • An open, clutter-free space where you can safely exercise and stretch
  • A reliable, high-speed internet connection
  • Loose-fitting, comfortable clothing in which you can exercise and move freely

3. Telemedicine physical therapy is affordable

Telemedicine physical therapy is covered by most major insurance providers as would be an in-person physical therapy session. Our team at Border Therapy Services also accepts credit and debit payments, as well as flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) payments for Medicare, Medicaid and self-pay patients.
