How To Continue Your PT Treatment In The Age of Covid-19  

Sep20th 2020

COVID-19 has brought many things to a grinding halt. Your treatment doesn’t have to be one of them!

Reading the words “the age of COVID-19” might seem strange, but we have to face the facts. This is the age we’re living through, a time where masks and hand sanitizers are more commonly purchased than sunglasses and tanning lotion. A lot of things have had to change in our lives because of this virus, and many things have had to stop altogether, but you know what doesn’t have to? Your physical therapy treatment.

 Many people are unable or too nervous to venture out of their house for doctor appointments right now due to COVID-19, and reasonably so! This virus has spread rapidly throughout our country, and it’s understandable if you are not comfortable enough to make a trip to see your therapist in person. NY Physical Therapy & Wellness is happy to offer our telehealth services, as well as our in-home therapy services for our patients who are unable to visit our office or would just feel more comfortable at home.

Contact our office today to learn more about beginning your physical therapy treatment, or continuing it from the comfort of your own home. Don’t let COVID-19 scare you away from keeping up your strength and taking care of your body!

NY Physical Therapy & Wellness’s In-Home Therapy Services are Open – Even During Covid-19  

Are you stuck at home due to pain, immobility, travel issues, or feel uncomfortable leaving your home right now? The skilled physical therapists here at  NY Physical Therapy & Wellness are so committed to your progress and recovery that we will come to you!

Because we don’t want you to lose any progress or continue dealing with painful symptoms, we are happy to provide our complete physical therapy services in the privacy and convenience of your home. Our dedicated therapists at NY Physical Therapy & Wellness provide safe and effective care and will create a customized plan of exercises suited to your specific pain condition and needs. 

Our treatment plans are created to help ease your pain while working on balance, strengthening, and walking. Our therapists will arrive at your home with all the necessary equipment, so no hard work for you! Another plus? While your therapist is in your home, he or she can even check the place out to make sure you don’t have any areas that pose fall risks or other injuries.

If you’ve never been in physical therapy treatment before, it’s not hard to get the ball rolling. Even with the threat of COVID-19 hanging over our country, we are still here to relieve your pain and help you get back to your life! If you’re suffering from neck pain, back pain, knee pain, have a degenerative condition (such as arthritis), or have recently sustained an injury, contact NY Physical Therapy & Wellness to learn about how physical therapy can provide long-lasting relief.

Telehealth Physical Therapy Services 

NY Physical Therapy & Wellness also offers telehealth services for our physical therapy patients, as recommended by the APTA. Telehealth is a great option for patients who are not leaving their homes and are not comfortable with having any visitors over because of COVID-19. You might be wondering what telehealth is, and how anyone could continue physical therapy treatment virtually. It’s pretty simple! 

Telehealth services can be accessed via your smartphone or computer. You will meet and talk with your physical therapist about your treatment plan during your appointment. You will be able to perform your exercises and stretches from the comfort of your own home as well as track your progress to see how you are improving. All of these can happen without you having to make a trip to our clinic, or have an at-home visit.

Several conditions can be successfully treated and improved via telehealth services, including, but not limited to:

  • Arthritis pain
  • Post-surgical rehab
  • Back pain
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Sports medicine/athletic training
  • Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, and other chronic conditions
  • Injury rehab

Don’t Let Covid-19 Stop Your Treatment!

Here in our clinic, it will always be our top priority to make sure patients are still meeting their goals and making ample progress in their physical therapy treatment. COVID-19 has rocked our world on many different levels, but we shouldn’t let it control our lives! Your treatment can continue, and we’re here to help every step of the way. If you or a loved one needs physical therapy, there’s no better time than the present to start getting help.
