We are now offering physical therapy services via Skype or Facetime. With this service, we will be able to evaluate shortfalls in range of motion, balance/stability, and strength, which in many cases are the underlying root cause of pain.
Based on diagnosis, corrective exercises are provided and pictures/instructions are e-mailed to the patient. The patient will performs the exercise routine at home for one week with follow-up Skype sessions scheduled to assess progress and progress the exercise program. We can alternate between video physical therapy and the occasional office visit for other services, if you have access to the office.
