Telehealth With Core Physical Therapy

How can you assess me without seeing me in person?

Doctors of physical therapy are trained to assess patients by verbal communication and observational measures to assess the function of the musculoskeletal or neuromuscular system. This may include joint active range of motion, postural and biomechanical function, locomotion, gait analysis, and overall functional abilities. From there, we will develop an individualized plan of care with collaboration between you and the physical therapist to achieve your goals. This is similar to the clinic setting with the PT inquiring further about details regarding your concerns, as well as social and work factors limiting you from doing the things you enjoyed prior to the injury/surgery. After assessing your condition, deeper discussion may determine if you could benefit from an on-site physical therapy clinic visit that may include manual therapy or additional treatments. If that is the case, we will provide you with locations near your area to seek alternative treatment.
