In 2020, we initiated telehealth (virtual physical therapy) as a means to continue patient care during the pandemic. It has been such a success that, in an effort to both safeguard everyone's health and provide physical therapy in a convenient and effective manner, we anticipate a hybrid model of care ongoing to include both in-clinic and virtual treatment options.
WE ARE NOW OFFERING
TELEHEALTH PHYSICAL THERAPY TO
CURRENT & NEW PATIENTS!
Contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment:
PATIENTS MUST BE IN ILLINOIS TO RECEIVE TELEHEALTH SERVICES THROUGH VITALITY!
Benefits of Virtual Physical Therapy:
Your therapist will be able to assess your ACTUAL environment and see how you work, play, care for yourself and others, and live your life.
Examples of areas of assessment:
office or home workstation
childcare strategies, including review of feeding postures in the
actual chair/bed that you feed your baby in, and lifting mechanics from your crib, changing table, and highchair
analysis of your exercise space and equipment to promote better exercise in your home
You will save the commute time to an in-person session, missing less work or time with your family.
If you have young children, you don’t have to find childcare or drag them into an appointment. Several patients with infants have timed PT appointments according to nap time.
Patients experiencing acute pain and difficulty with mobility can benefit from more frequent, shorter telehealth sessions to assist in their care.
Telehealth sessions are delivered through a HIPAA compliant platform.
You will receive a link to Vitality's virtual platform in your appointment reminder email or you can go directly to your physical therapist's waiting room.
"I have been having such a positive experience with my telehealth pelvic therapy. I was apprehensive before we started, as I didn’t know how a telehealth appointment would benefit me. My pelvic therapist, Katherine, has really helped my confidence with learning about my body, providing tips on how to help with my specific issues, and giving me exercises to do at home. She has helped me incorporate exercises into my daily routine with my new baby. This in turn has improved my overall pelvic floor. I’m starting to feel like myself again, and I can’t wait to continue my therapy both through telehealth and in person."
