Telehealth | One on One

One positive development that originated from the pandemic is we learned how to successfully execute many of our services in a virtual format.
With the proper camera set-up, we can appropriately assess your posture, movement and breathing patterns in addition to guiding you through therapeutic exercises and techniques.
Bringing us into your home also allows us to simulate how you would perform your home exercise program and ensure it is being carried out just right. Given many that of us are now working from home we can also directly assess your workstation to ensure it is ergonomically correct and efficient. This can make a huge difference in the cumulative stress and strain placed on your body.
A virtual format also lends itself well to:
Preparing for your Virtual Visit
  1. WIFI connection – In order for your virtual visit to run smoothly, please ensure that the WIFI / connection is running smoothly in the room you would like to use
  2. Device – It is extraordinarily helpful to use either a smartphone, laptop, or iPad/ Tablet in order to be able to move the video so that the therapist can get the best view of your body and movements! It is optimal to use a device that can be easily transported onto different surfaces depending on what angles the therapist needs to see. 
  3. Helpful hint – We have found that a laptop is the most useful device because you can tip the screen to angle upwards/ downwards for best visibility. 
  4. Where to set up in your home – Prior to your appointment, please set up a couple of spaces in your home for viewing. 
  5. Have a section in your room either on an elevated surface like a bed or a yoga mat on the floor in order to do exercises.
  6. Make sure you can set up your video so it can view the surface you will be demoing the exercises. It is helpful to have a chair that you can perch your camera/ laptop/ tablet on. 
  7. Please set up an alternate area in your home where you can walk down a longer hallway or in a bigger room back and forth. The video angle that we will need to see is from the front/ back (not a side view!). Watching you walk is one of the most important observations that we can have! Example: Set up your computer/ phone/ tablet on a chair or small table on the end of one hallway. Make sure visibility is clear (hallway lights turned on, etc.) 
  8. Exercise equipment – Your therapist may also want you to have a chair, pillow, toilet paper roll (or little ball), and some bath towels handy for supports for exercises. If you have exercise equipment it is also nice to have that near to tell your therapist what you have available at home so we can best put together a program for you.
