Three big benefits of virtual physical therapy at Panther Physical Therapy

Telemedicine is an exciting trend in the health care field at large, and many experts believe that physical therapy is one of the most ideal applications for this technology. In the same way that video conferencing allows you to connect virtually with friends, family and co-workers, it can also let you consult and receive treatment from a licensed and experienced physical therapist. 

As the coronavirus outbreak and COVID-19 pandemic continue to evolve, government agencies are recommending social distancing, self-isolation and sheltering in place. For patients who still need to receive physical therapy treatment, virtual physical therapy offers an opportunity to receive a high level of individualized care from the safety of home. 

At Panther Physical Therapy, we’re offering virtual physical therapy in addition to in-clinic visits so you can treat your aches and pains from the comfort and safety of your home. To understand how virtual physical therapy can benefit you, take a moment to review the following information. 

What are the benefits of virtual physical therapy? 

By connecting with a therapist, you can interact and receive instruction as if you were right there in the clinic. Here are three primary benefits of this form of treatment that you should be aware of: 

  1. Convenience — Virtual physical therapy allows you to meet one-on-one and in real time with a professional and licensed therapist. Because our platform is browser based, you don’t need to install additional software and can connect with your online device. 
  2. Affordability — Panther has virtual physical therapy sessions that are covered by most major insurance plans the same way as an in-person visit. Our team also accepts credit and debit as well as Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) payments for Medicare, Medicaid and self-pay patients.
  3. Safety — For patients with limited mobility, in remote locations or who need to practice social distancing, virtual physical therapy can benefit these groups by offering services over a secure platform without the need to leave the comfort of home. 

With virtual physical therapy at Panther, we’ll deliver the same benefits and level of care that you would receive at our offices.
