Access Safe and Effective Physical Therapy Through Telerehab

At ProFysio Physical Therapy, we are proud to offer telerehab as an alternative to coming into the office. Because of the effects of COVID-19, this service has become more popular than ever, and many patients are able to receive the care they need out of the comfort and safety of their own homes. Although we have taken extra precautions due to the pandemic to make our office as safe as possible, we are happy to provide this service to offer our patients an added level of comfort. Telerehab offers a variety of physical therapy solutions using innovative, patient-centered technology. All you need to attend your appointment is Wi-Fi, a mobile device, laptop, or desktop.

It’s never a safe idea to put off your medical visits, especially when you have an ongoing bodily injury that requires physical therapy. It is also necessary to keep your therapist updated on the state of your condition. Although this year has come with its challenges, getting the necessary physical therapy you need in a safe environment can help make things just a bit better. Some of the benefits of attending a virtual visit for physical therapy include:

  • The technology is so simple – anyone could set up an appointment!

Our platform is intuitive and simple. You can do your physical therapy on your own schedule when it is convenient for you. If you need any assistance at all with setting up your appointment, feel free to call us at (732) 812-5200 or contact us online and a member of our team will assist you within 30 minutes.

  • Virtual sessions can provide treatments for a wide variety of injuries.

Although not every treatment will be able to receive virtual care, any type of injury that prevents you from moving properly can be helped through a virtual physical therapy session as long as the patient is cleared for active movement. These are typically injuries that are muscular or skeletal. However, injuries that need to remain immobile in order to heal, like an open wound or a fractured bone, would not do well in virtual therapy. Because our therapists are highly trained in this, actions that once required touch and feel can now be accomplished by giving specific instructions to the patient and carefully monitoring how their bodies respond.

  • It is a safe way to engage in your long-term health.

Many of the patients who are able to benefit from this service are those who are most vulnerable to the consequences of COVID-19 and who want to take an extra step to protect themselves. Not only are patients able to become more in tune with the needs of their condition during a virtual appointment, but we are also able to educate them on preventative measures.
