For many, starting physical therapy can seem like a big commitment and a bit overwhelming.
Whether it’s because adding yet another task to an already busy schedule seems unfeasible or because physical exercises are daunting – don’t worry, we get it. OneStep has built its app with you in mind.
Even though adding something to the schedule can be intimidating, the OneStep recovery program makes it as convenient as possible. With our app, the physical therapist comes to you. No more needing to get in a car and sit through traffic or make a commute to your appointment. To make the good news even better, scheduling has never been easier. You don’t need to wait to schedule your appointment or google a physical therapist in the area. Whenever you know what time works best for you, just use the schedule platform in the app or send a message to your physical therapist and they’ll get back to you as soon as they see it.
It’s not just scheduling that can be a barrier to starting physical therapy. Many are also intimidated by the prospect of starting a rehabilitation program. It can seem large and overwhelming. No need to worry, OneStep was built with you in mind. Your personalized physical therapy course is broken down into daily personalized bite-size exercise sessions, adjusted to your goals and physical state. It takes about 10-15 minutes to exercise each day, and you can complete your daily plan on your terms from the comfort of your home. You don’t need to do it all at once or go past your comfort zone, we take rehabilitation one step at a time.
If you feel discouraged to start because you don’t know whether you’ll see results - don’t worry. An incredible feature OneStep offers is our Walk Score and gait analysis reports, which are sent to you and your physical therapist after every walk you take with the app. This shows your daily and weekly progression and often you’ll see your walk improve before you feel it! This also helps your physical therapist adjust your courses and exercises, as they view and monitor your progress every day.
Sometimes, OneStep patients feel defeated from exercising or are in pain. This is a very natural part of the process. When this happens it's a great time to reach out to your physical therapist. They will get back to you quickly and offer alternatives in addition to words of encouragements and support. And even if you don’t reach out, we’re here for you. Your physical therapist consistently checks in with you, supports you, answers any questions you might have, and maintains daily communication with you.
The recovery process is full of ups and downs. Sometimes we forget to exercise or can’t seem to find the time to exercise. When that happens, your physical therapists are notified and they will reach out to you. They will never try to make you exercise! More to the point, they will want to hear how your day is going and how you’re doing. Together, you will work to find the best path moving forward.
All of these features make for a supportive recovery network that’s right there by your side, guiding you one step at a time in your recovery journey. Download OneStep today to get started.
