Many industries have adapted their business models to meet the demands of customers while insuring their health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. The healthcare industry has aggressively met this challenge with the introduction of online healthcare options including physical therapy.

Virtual physical therapy sessions are a way for patients to keep on track with their treatment, bringing their sessions to their home. More than 1,000 patients at ATI Physical Therapy, one of the nation’s largest physical therapy providers, have used its telehealth service since the program’s launch in March.

Virtual PT also is an effective way to help manage pain, with the goal of keeping them out of the doctor’s offices and emergency rooms during this critical time. It is particularly valuable for seniors, who generally have the most pain and are most at risk of contracting COVID-19.
