SPEAR is offering Telehealth PT services for all of our patients (new and current) that are unable to come into the clinic. It's a great way to connect, coach you on your exercises, and help make sure you're still making progress while you're stuck at home. Here's the quick version:
- Sessions are 30 minutes long through video chat and would be with a licensed physical therapist
- You can use a cell phone, laptop, tablet, etc - anything that can browse through Chrome or Firefox
- Cost per session is the same rate you would pay for an in-office visit, depending on your copay/coinsurance. Self-pay rate is $75 per session
- We can schedule pretty much anytime that works for both parties involved
