Pain and injuries are a part of life, and they don’t just stop during a pandemic. It is our mission to provide convenient and individualized Physical Therapy care to promote a healthy lifestyle in an atmosphere that serves our client first. This couldn’t be even more true today with our new normal. If you have been experiencing pain or an injury and are ready to do something about it, then check out our tips below to fix your injury and decrease your exposure to COVID-19 at the same time.
Take advantage of direct access.
You do not need a doctor referral to see a physical therapist in the state of Wisconsin – we have direct access! Avoid the doctor’s office and an extra visit, and see your physical therapist first. At Geromove, we provide one-on-one care and have no more than three people present in the clinic at any given time including you, the front desk coordinator, and the physical therapist. Resolve your pain and stay safe all at once.
Get treatment sooner rather than later.
Getting treatment quickly and soon after an injury requires less total visits and therefore decreases your exposure risk. It also requires less time on your end and prevents the issue from becoming chronic, which can require additional visits to your primary care physician or other specialists. The sooner you feel better, the sooner you can return back to activities and exercise without pain!
Receive virtual treatment.
If you feel uncomfortable receiving in-person treatment for any reason, virtual physical therapy is a great option to still get the care you need, but from the comfort of your own home. Virtual care has been shown to offer the same level of care as in-person treatment. All you need is an electronic device with a camera and microphone, such as a smartphone, laptop, or tablet, and internet access. Log on at your appointment time and you are all set.
Try a hybrid care model.
If you liked the sound of virtual treatment above but still want the in-clinic experience too, then consider a hybrid treatment model. With this type of care, we recommend that the first visit is completed in-person and treatment visits thereafter can be a combination of virtual and in-person. You have the flexibility to decide what works best for your schedule.
Make a decision today, and act on it!
Whether your injury or pain is new or old, doing something about it is always the best choice. Decide what is best for you to get your problem addressed, and then act on it! You will be glad you did.
