What are some benefits of virtual physical therapy?

Virtual Physical Therapy Benefits

Telemedicine is a category of health care that has been expanding in recent years. It involves the use of mobile and internet technology to provide video visits with health care professionals. Remote patient monitoring is also typically included in the telemedicine category. 

Virtual physical therapy is a type of telemedicine offered by physical therapy specialists. The coronavirus outbreak has led to increased use of this service, which is also called telehealth physical therapy. We are offering virtual care services in addition to in-clinic visits so our team can continue to treat your aches and pains if you need to remain in your home. 

Virtual physical therapy has been shown to offer many benefits to patients.

Three benefits offered by virtual physical therapy

The methods used by physical therapists are designed to offer many benefits. Virtual physical therapy is no exception. There are three benefits in particular that virtual physical therapy can offer: 

  1. Getting you moving after surgery — If you’ve recently had surgery or are expecting to have surgery soon, physical therapy afterward can help your recover. Surgery takes a toll on your muscles and soft tissue. Physical therapy helps you rebuild the strength and flexibility of the muscles and soft tissue so you can get back to doing the things you love with less pain and increased mobility.
  1. Personalized treatment — At Advent Physical Therapy, we always personalize our treatments to the needs of each individual patient. Whether in the clinic or at home via virtual physical therapy, our team will assess your condition and develop a personalized treatment designed to help you reach your recovery goals. 
  1. Decreased dependency on medication — Many people turn to pain medication to deal with pain from injuries and chronic conditions. The problem with this is that medication causes unwanted side effects and can be addictive. Physical therapy helps you manage your pain and recover more quickly so you don’t need to rely on medication as much or at all.
