Finding a physical therapist near you may feel tricky depending on where you live – you might have overwhelming options in busy cities or very few if you live in a more rural area. How can you find the right PT clinic nearby that also fits your needs and schedule? Luckily, OneStep takes the guesswork out of finding a physical therapist perfect for you regardless of where you’re located. There’s no need to search tirelessly for “physical therapy near me!”
The closest physical therapy clinic is actually physical therapy at home!
You might be wondering, “how will I find physical therapy near me?” Technology has made us closer than ever, and healthcare is no exception. Now you can receive excellent physical therapy at home on your own schedule. Going to a physical therapy clinic nearby is not as simple for everyone, which limits the number of times they can actually attend in-person visits. It can be difficult finding the time to commute to and from the PT clinic, arranging transportation, hiring childcare, or taking time off work for appointments. Not to mention you can’t control bad weather or unforeseen life circumstances that make attending in-clinic PT nearly impossible at times.
Remote at-home physical therapy is safe and effective
There’s no reason to be hesitant about receiving physical therapy at home remotely. Studies have shown that people who do their exercises and touch base with their physical therapist at home using remote tools still achieve excellent results and meet their therapy goals. Your physical therapist will first meet with you virtually to perform an initial evaluation that assesses your mobility, needs, and goals just as if you were at a PT clinic. Your physical therapist will also ensure you are an appropriate candidate for remote physical therapy at home and assign you a home program that is safe and effective. Remote in-home physical therapy can be used for:
- Post-surgical recovery
- Injury prevention and recovery
- Sports performance
- Strength and conditioning
- Gait and balance training
- Fall risk assessment and prevention
- Pain and limited mobility
- Osteoarthritis and bone health
- Neurological diagnoses
- Pelvic floor therapy
- And more!
