Clinics Are Open
COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed the way we live our everyday lives, hasn’t it? One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is Physical Therapy Now and our dedication to helping clients feel their best.
We have had to make a few adjustments, but we are thrilled to tell you that our clinics are all open and ready to help whether you need to begin or continue physical therapy. You may have a few questions, however, so keep reading to see how Physical Therapy Now is adapting to this “new normal.”
The Precautions We’re Taking
We take the coronavirus pandemic very seriously and are taking several precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of both our clients and our staff while still providing you with the essential physical therapy you need right now. Among the measures we are taking at this time are:
- Limiting the number of healthy clients in our clinic at one time. We are adhering to all social distancing guidelines by only allowing a limited number of people (including staff) in the clinic at once. Those who are not feeling well and/or are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will kindly be asked to reschedule or sign up for one of our in-home physical therapy sessions online.
- Cautiously and properly disinfecting and cleaning all of our equipment. When you come into one of our many clinics, we want you to feel safe and reassured that we are maintaining the cleanest facility possible. We are thoroughly cleaning all equipment after every therapy session and then going back and cleaning again throughout the day.
- Offering several sanitary and cleansing solutions. We have plenty of hand soap and hand sanitizer on hand and ready to use for all our clients and staff. Plus, if you feel safer with gloves, we are happy to provide them as well.
- Providing teletherapy. Everyone deserves physical therapy if they need it. That is why we are proud to offer teletherapy to any of our clients who have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, or those who have traveled or have been in contact with someone who has traveled. This ensures they get to continue their progress from the comfort and safety of their homes.
What Is Teletherapy?
Teletherapy–also known as virtual therapy/rehab, telemedicine, cyber rehab, cybertherapy, telehealth, telerehab, and tele-physical therapy (among others)–is a way for clients to keep their physical therapy appointments and maintain the progress they’ve made, but from the comfort of their homes. We are also scheduling new clients for cybertherapy sessions. All it takes is an internet connection and a phone, computer, or tablet with a camera.
During your teletherapy appointment, you will receive the same level of attention and dedication from one of our professional physical therapists as you would in our clinics. The teletherapy service is free of charge, and we are working very closely with insurance companies to ensure your insurance covers your teletherapy sessions. If there are any issues with your insurance coverage and in-home physical therapy, we will make sure you know BEFORE your session begins.
