Telehealth

VIDEO TELEHEALTH

An alternative or supplement to in-person care

 


"ThriveAgain Physical Therapy & Wellness's telehealth option has been a life saver during the pandemic. I have been seeing my therapist for a while now and it is a huge relief to know that I can get the help I need even though I can't attend a session in person. The check ins keep me on task with my at home exercises, help to make sure that I am executing them correctly and also allow access to new exercises that I can incorporate into my routine. Highly recommended. My wife and sister are also currently taking advantage of the telehealth option. Thank you, ThriveAgain Physical Therapy & Wellness!" -Anthony


"I was skeptical how much telehealth physical therapy would work, but thanks to my therapist, I went from being in constant excruciating pain and being unable to walk or bend without difficulty to normal and improved range of movement and no pain." -Amanda K


"Working with my therapist via telemedicine at ThriveAgain PT has been a life-saver! Towards the end of my pregnancy, I started experiencing round-ligament pain that made it difficult to walk or do basic activities. Through online PT, my therapist helped me see vast improvement in the condition so that I can now walk about 1/2 mile and get around the house without pain. She has also given me helpful exercises to prepare for birth." -Laura B.

We are pleased to offer video telehealth as an alternative or supplement to in-person care. Telehealth sessions are available to new and existing patients.
 
Telehealth sessions take place over a HIPAA compliant secure video interface (Theranest) and allow for many of the treatments that you might receive in our office. 
 
Some examples include:
  • Exercise Instruction
  • Functional Retraining
  • Education 
  • Postural Re-education
  • Ergonomic Training
  • Practical Advice
  • Troubleshooting
In addition, having a view of your home environment provides your therapist a unique opportunity to evaluate ergonomic and environmental factors that may be impacting your symptoms.  
 
Examples of home activities, positions, and areas that may benefit from our input:
  • Sleep positioning
  • Workstation set-up
  • Your favorite chair 
  • Breastfeeding positions
  • Bathroom set-up
  • Running or walking form (you’ll need a friend to video you for this one!)
  • Any other home task that’s giving you trouble
For new patients, telehealth evaluations include a thorough history taking, movement assessment, and personalized treatment plan. As always, therapy sessions are one-on-one and private. Telehealth sessions last 45-55 minutes for initial evaluation and 20-30 minutes for follow-up. Please note, while telehealth is fully compliant with healthcare laws and regulations, health insurance companies may not reimburse at the same rate as they do for in-person visits. Under current law, your therapist must be licensed in the state where you are located during the telehealth session. All of our physical therapists are licensed in Maryland and the District of Columbia. We also have therapists licensed in Virginia and Pennsylvania. If you do not see your state listed or have questions about seeing a particular therapist for telehealth, please check with us as regulations and requirements are quickly evolving.
 
If you are unsure whether a telehealth visit is right for you, feel free to contact us for input from one of our therapists.
