Humans are social creatures.
This quality becomes even more important in the recovery process. As we recover, progress and heal - we need significant help and support. This support is pivotal in getting us through the ups and downs.
Getting injured, experiencing pain, or undergoing surgery can completely derail our lives. Everyday activities that we were accustomed to suddenly need to change and that can be difficult for us to navigate on our own. In fact, many people report levels of depression and loneliness in these states. Part of this can be explained by a lack of an encouraging support network to be there for us as we go through the healing process.
OneStep sought to address this by working to create a platform where communication between patient and practitioner was seamless. As a baseline, our professional PTs are available to provide one on one physical therapy and help guide you in your journey, ensuring you are never feeling lost on the way. With OneStep’s 24/7 chat you can ask any question, share a win or any struggle you might have with your PT. But we wanted to take our support to the next level. If hundreds of thousands of patients are undergoing similar processes, the experience need not be a lonely one.
That's why we decided to offer bi-monthly community classes exclusive to OneStep patients. We wanted to create a space for you to meet fellow OneStep patients in addition to the OneStep physical therapists. These sessions always include a Q&A where you can have a chance to ask any outstanding questions you may have. By participating in the communal session and Q&A, OneStep patients are provided the community setting they need to break the isolation so common in recovery. It also helps that so many people have the same questions - so listening in as someone else asks something relevant to them can often be helpful for many of those listening. Plus, you'll get a chance to experience the wide range of OneStep PTs and their varying specialities.
These features provide you with a supportive network that is by your side, guiding you step-by-step towards recovery.
