What is Tele-PT?
Magnolia Physical Therapy is now offering Tele-PT in which a patient and physical therapist can conduct an initial evaluation and on-going treatment virtually via a cell phone, tablet or computer. The patient can participate in the session from the safety and comfort of their home or other remote location. The service is completely confidential, private and meets all HIPAA regulations.
What to expect from your virtual appointment?
Your physical therapist will conduct a comprehensive one on one session in which all of the usual problem solving takes place. Each treatment will involve an in-depth interview and special testing to determine the most appropriate exercises and activities for that telehealth visit and for ongoing home exercise until the next virtual meeting. Patients will be able to demonstrate the exercises and postural activities for the therapist who will provide guidance and correction of form as needed. Your therapist will adjust the treatment plan by discontinuing exercises and stretches that are becoming too easy and adding more advanced activities as appropriate.
