Physical Therapy When & Where You Need It.FOR PHYSICAL THERAPY PATIENTS
Effective, Affordable Treatment
at Your Convenience
Physical Therapy is an effective treatment for many orthopedic conditions ranging from tendinitis of the shoulder to total knee replacements. The key to a successful outcome is the physical therapist developing a customized treatment plan, guiding the patient through the process, and holding the patient accountable.
But, what if you’re always on the go, or out of town and in need of timely and effective care?
TeleTherapy Direct is building a network of accredited physical therapists to deliver quality care when and where you need it. Now, instead of traveling to their office, they’ll come to you through your phone, tablet or desktop. Simply log into our network and you can schedule an appointment within 24 hours (excluding Sundays and holidays). And, your privacy will be protected, because every session is streamed through a secure HIPAA-compliant web connection.
Receive physical therapy at a time and place that is convenient for you.
Today, video conferencing now enables communications between the patient and physical therapist with both convenience and consistency. No longer do you have to face the challenge of making physical therapy appointments to fit your schedule. Our nationwide network gives you more providers to choose from and quicker appointments. You can now have quality care at your fingertips without disrupting to your busy lifestyle. All it takes is a high-speed Internet connection.
A realistic alternative for dispensing physical therapy services.
Due to expanded access and greater convenience, telemedicine, in general, has quickly become a viable alternative to traditional office visits. Numerous studies have shown that patients are becoming more accustomed to, and satisfied with, telemedicine. In 2009, a pilot study of the effectiveness of telerehabilitation for post-knee arthroplasty (total knee replacement) was conducted and showed that teletherapy was a realistic alternative for dispensing rehabilitation services to discharged acute care patients.

What Services Do Our Physical Therapists Provide?
Our physical therapists primarily treat orthopedic injuries. Specifically, those involving the shoulder, lower back, hip, knee, foot and ankle. An online session is, essentially, the same as an office visit, but from the convenience of a location of your choosing. You will be asked about your current symptoms, potential factors contributing to these symptoms, your history and what you would like to be accomplished through therapy. Using all of this information, your therapist will come up with a thorough assessment and exercise plan recommendations. This will be an ongoing conversation and can change if your needs change over time.
