Wilton Physical Therapy is excited to offer “telehealth” physical therapy visits! Our staff of qualified physical therapists will be able provide effective treatments virtually in the comfort of your own home.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth is a live, one-on-one video appointment with your PT. In these times of social distancing and public safety telehealth has become a viable option to treat patients. It enables patients to communicate with their physical therapist from the safety and comfort of their own home.
Benefits of telehealth:
Effectiveness: Studies have shown that telehealth visits are just as effective as “live” visits. Telehealth visits maintain patient consistency and compliance with their home exercise program resulting in positive outcomes.
Convenience: Telemedicine gives patients greater freedom to schedule appointments that meet their own specific schedules. There is no need to change your plans, reschedule work or find child care.
Personalized care: During a private telehealth visit, you will work with your physical therapist in a one-on-one setting, without distractions. You also can involve family members or caregivers in your appointment, if you like.
Satisfaction: The majority of patients who have participated in telehealth physical therapy were satisfied with their experience and would do it again. Patients expressed feeling connected and supported by their telehealth physical therapist.
Transportation: Telehealth visits eliminates commuting to the office in, arranging rides for those who are unable to drive and keeps the continuity of care if there is inclement weather.
