A lot of our patients have seen great results through our #telehealth offering, but many others still question its effectiveness and whether or not they truly stand to benefit. Through a recent study, data indicates that telehealth sessions are in fact successful in increasing and enhancing physical activity, particularly in older populations. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we’re seeing proof in our own telehealth treatments that both exercise and remote care play complementary roles in helping others stay healthy.

The body is an amazing thing. Did you know regular exercise is proven to help stabilize and even strengthen the immune system? Empower your body even further with today’s at-home fitness tip.
Use your body weight: Many exercises don’t require equipment, aside from your own body. Burpees, lunges, squats, push-ups and sit-ups (to name a few) can be combined for quite an effective workout. And, don’t forget to incorporate cool-down stretching to exercise your flexibility.
You may be isolating at home with little or no gym equipment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t work out.
Be creative at home: With a little imagination, everyday items like soup cans can be weights, towels can serve as resistance bands and a set of stairs can be your cardio machine. Even young kids can offer added weight (when they aren’t squirming!) during resistance exercises.
April is American Heart Association’s #MoveMore Month, and while many people's exercise routines have been disrupted due to COVID-19, it’s important to remember that “moving” doesn’t only mean working out – it simply means “moving.”
Get stuff done: Don’t overlook the exercise benefits that come with doing home projects. Set time aside to do some deep cleaning and organizing, or finally get to those maintenance projects you’ve been putting off. Yard work and gardening also make for great workouts.
As an essential healthcare service, we’re open and seeing current patients, as well as accepting new patients.
Patients, especially those who have undergone a recent major medical procedure, continue to need comprehensive and personalized rehabilitative care. And as hospital systems across the country shut down their ancillary services to focus on treating COVID-19 patients, our front-line physical therapists continue to provide new and existing patients with options for care.
With safety as a top priority, we’re actively taking the necessary steps to ensure patient care is met with strict infection control measures. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions about your treatment or need to schedule an appointment.
Stress Awareness Month couldn’t have come at a better time. During this uncertain time, it’s of the utmost importance to check in our your physical, mental and emotional health. Below is a perfect way to combine two great stress reducers – exercise and nature.
Become one with nature: While some of the more popular parks and trails in your area may be closed, plenty of less-populated parks and wildlife areas are still open for hiking, running, cycling and more. Enjoy the fresh air and natural sites, but still be sure to keep your distance from other people enjoying the great outdoors.
As we continue practicing social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, many of us may be having a difficult time maintaining a regular exercise routine. And yet, this is a time when exercise and physical fitness can do us a lot of good. Over the next few weeks, we will share exercise ideas you can do at home to help maintain both your physical and mental health.
Our first tip: Try virtual classes and apps. Not only are there a number of free and paid services and apps available that will take you through a variety of daily workout routines (i.e., cardio, yoga, stationary cycling, etc.), but a few higher-end services are offering extended free trial sessions during the current pandemic. Some gyms are even streaming daily workouts during their closures.
Because telehealth therapy sessions take place virtually, my results will be different than if I were working with a therapist in-person, right? Not necessarily.
A: Success of telehealth treatment depends on you! Our physical therapists will provide telehealth patients a safe and effective home treatment program according to specific needs and goals. As always, to have a successful and effective recovery, we strongly encourage our patients to continue following their treatment program on their own even after completing session(s) with their therapist.
Visit our website – www.prnpt.com/telehealth – to learn more about telehealth success.
Telehealth appointments may sound complicated, but the technology needed is actually quite straightforward.
A: To participate in a telehealth session, you’ll need an email address and access to a computer or device that has a video camera and microphone. Our physical therapists are happy to advise you on everything needed in order to ensure a successful treatment.
If you have additional questions or concerns about participating in a telehealth therapy session, please visit www.prnpt.com/telehealth.
With all the information we’ve been sharing about telehealth, you may be wondering if it’s the right choice for you. We’re here to help you make that decision.
A: Anyone – regardless of age, medical condition or symptoms – may be eligible to participate in a telehealth treatment program. Telehealth is especially beneficial for patients needing:
• Orthopedic therapy for conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, including joints, muscles, bones ligaments and tendons.
• Geriatric therapy treatment for conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, hip joint replacement and balance disorders.
• Neurological therapy for conditions resulting from neurological injuries, infections, degenerative diseases, structural defects and other circulatory system injuries affecting the nervous system.

Next up in our telehealth Q&A is an insurance-specific question. We’ll be providing answers to additional questions throughout the week, but you can visit our website – www.prnpt.com/telehealth – for more information in the meantime.
A: More insurance carriers are accepting telehealth services as a covered treatment in light of the pandemic. However, we recommend you consult with your healthcare provider to determine if the treatment will be covered and the degree to which it will be supported. Our team is happy to assist in this process as well if you have questions.
Your “new normal” of working from home might mean new pain. Since physical therapy is considered a front-line essential service, our clinic remains open to new and existing patients to help you feel your best during this time. You can give us a call or schedule an appointment online for either telehealth or in-person social distancing therapy. If you choose to visit us in-person, please know your health and safety is our top priority. We’re closely following CDC guidelines, which include screening patients and staff members when they arrive, and regularly cleaning equipment and countertops.
We fully understand you may have some questions about telehealth, our new offering that allows patients the option to undergo their physical therapy treatment from the safety and convenience of their home. Over the next few days, we’ll provide answers to some of the commonly asked questions we’ve received.
A: Similar to an in-clinic experience, telehealth offers patients private one-on-one treatment sessions with their PT and follows their specific program’s exercises and requirements. The only difference is the lack of hands-on support that would be received in the clinic, as the appointment will take place over video. Please visit our website for more information on telehealth: www.prnpt.com/telehealth.
We’re beyond thankful for all the doctors, physicians and healthcare professionals who continue to lead the way in our fight against COVID-19. Our country is immensely grateful for your incredible service and bravery, today and every day.
We’d also like to acknowledge our physical therapists for their dedication in putting their patients first and continuing to provide high-quality care during this uncertain time. We’re so proud of their contributions to the health of their communities. #NationalDoctorsDay
