Hillcrest Physical Therapy Offers Telehealth Services

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a lot of events being canceled, but that doesn’t mean you have to cancel your therapy appointments. With telehealth services, Hillcrest Physical Therapy can now bring the therapy you need to the safety of your own home. Through your smartphone, tablet or computer, your therapist can guide you through your therapy sessions through video appointments. Setting up telehealth is easy and our trained telehealth therapists are happy to help you every step of the way.

“Telehealth is a great way to provide clients with greater access to care, especially during this time when patients may not feel comfortable leaving their homes for appointments,” said Sarah Blomenkamp, PT, GCS, CEEAA, a physical therapist at Hillcrest Physical Therapy. “We are able to provide full treatment sessions with consistent input and coaching throughout.”

Telehealth services are more accessible than ever. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has made it easier for health care professionals to use telehealth services. Consequently, more and more insurance providers have begun covering telehealth services as the need for them has spread.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it even more difficult to stay active. According to the CDC, inactivity increases with age. More than 1-in-4 adults in America over 50 do not engage in physical activity regularly. Right now, with so many places closed and fewer opportunities to stay active, it’s more important than ever to continue benefitting from physical and occupational therapy.

Don’t let COVID-19 stop you from staying active and healthy. Simply call us at (402) 682-4210 and we will help you determine if telehealth is the right step for you.
