Marquette, MI – (06/09/20) – Active Physical Therapy’s Laurie Smith joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to talk about the role of telehealth in physical therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Smith explained that telehealth allows a patient to be evaluated and treated from their own home, which is important for those that are high risk for severe illness or death from Covid-19, or they live with someone who is high risk.
She added that parents schooling children and working from home have appreciated the flexibility of telehealth, and patients who have a long drive to physical therapy have also utilized telehealth services.
Smith outlined the process of using telehealth in delivering physical therapy services to patients and how it can be used most effectively. She also shared information about the technical requirements needed to make it all work.
Smith said the office staff at Active Physical Therapy can answer any questions at (906) 226-0574. There is also information on their WEBSITE, including a sample visit for folks to view as they consider if telehealth might work for them.
