VIRTUAL VISITS ARE HERE!
Physical therapists are now allowed to participate in telehealth during the time COVID-19 restrictions are in place!
You can now consult your physical therapist from the safety and comfort of your own home. (We are still offering in-clinic visits during regular business hours as well if you'd prefer.)
Check out the Virtual Visit FAQ section below.
Call us today at 480-361-1127 to schedule either your Virtual Visit or regular In-Clinic Visit so you can stay pain free and enjoying life!
Physical therapists have been given access to provide telehealth during COVID-19 restrictions to ensure you can safely continue your plan of care. Telehealth services can be an effective way for you to communicate with your physical therapist and update your treatment to keep you progressing toward your goals.
During COVID-19 restrictions, many insurance companies are covering telehealth services provided by physical therapists. Your individual plan benefits will be obtained by us as a courtesy to you, but it is recommended you also call and ask if telehealth services provided by physical therapists are covered by your plan and if the visit is subject to any deductible, copay, or coinsurance. If your insurance does not cover telehealth, then you will be responsible for the current self pay rate.

- A laptop is the best choice as it usually has the best internet connection and can be repositioned to make sure you can be seen doing various tests and exercises.
- A mobile phone is possible but does not always offer the best video connection.
- A desktop computer does not allow for repositioning so your physical therapist can see you doing various movements through the camera.
- Be proactive in trying to limit interruptions from kids/family members including pets
- Make sure your electronic device is adequately charged
- Have a strong internet connection including avoiding having other home devices streaming during your visits; close any unnecessary apps on your device.
- You should be in a private space as you will be disclosing health information.
- If available, it can be helpful (but not required) to have a friend or family member present to assist with the video and/or your evaluation/treatment.
- You should be in a well-lit space. Depending on your injury, you may want to have a chair, bed or couch nearby. Your physical therapist will help you determine this ahead of time.
