Tips for a Successful TeleRehab Session
- Ensure your device is connected to a strong/stable internet connection. If using a cell phone, being connected to an internet source can provide a better connection
- Look to connect ~5 min prior to the start of your appointment. If you get into the session before your provider, please wait until the provider joins you.
- Ensure you have ample space needed to complete your session and make yourself comfortable. Choose a location in which you can be most comfortable both physically and emotionally. You will be asked by your therapist to move during your visit so make sure you have room to move. You want to be able to share information freely with your therapist so chose a location that is private and without distractions. The more comfortable you are in your surroundings the better the outcome of the visit will be.
- Choose a consistent location. Using the same space for every visit allows for your provider to know what equipment and furniture is available for treatment.
- Be prepared that you may potentially need to move your device into a position in which full visionary field can be achieved throughout the video call.
- Wear comfortable clothes you typically would wear to engage in physical activity, that allow for movement that can be seen over video. Having appropriate attire allows for your provider to assess how parts of your body move to determine the best intervention.
- If you are unable to connect with your clinician, please call the clinic where you made your appointment and they will re-schedule. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, many networks are experiencing high volume that can cause disruption
Research Supporting Telehealth
- There is a high level of agreement between an in-clinic PT diagnosis and a diagnosis obtained via telehealth using a remote diagnosis and a functional movement screen (FMS)
- A review of 75 systematic reviews and 71 Cochrane reviews revealed that the most effective interventions for low back pain (LBP) are patient self management, psychosocial interventions, and therapeutic exercise.
- A UC Irvine School of Medicine study recently revealed that telehealth PT was as effective as in-clinic therapy for improving upper extremity motor control post-CVA.
