Telehealth for Brooklyn-based Physical Therapy

 

Technology Meets Quality Care – Telehealth Physical Therapy

Telehealth for Brooklyn-based patients who need Physical Therapy is rolling out at Park Sports!

“Telehealth” is a buzz word that has been getting a lot of attention lately, and we believe, for the right reasons! Telehealth is an innovative way to make high quality care more accessible to patients. Park Sports is thrilled to announce that we are now able to serve orthopedic, post-operative, and pelvic floor needs through a HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform. All our clinicians are available for the video appointmentTelehealth Physical Therapy in Brooklyn

 

How It Works

Call our office today to schedule an appointment with one of our well-respected Doctors of Physical Therapy. A friendly receptionist will help to verify your insurance coverage and set up a time slot. You will receive an invitation link with your scheduled appointment time, which will also provide any pre-appointment instructions. Make sure that you have good internet access and are in a safe place to perform exercises! Once you are in your virtual session, your provider will assess your injury and create a treatment plan. They will then provide home exercises and help to answer any questions, as well as make follow up appointments. To learn more about it please visit the American Physical Therapy Association webpage https://www.apta.org/PTinMotion/News/2020/3/16/TelehealthCOVID19/
