With one-on-one therapy, most patients can be seen for regular physical therapy by the team at FAST Physical Therapy. But if you are unable to travel due to the quarantine, work or kids at home, the team at FAST Physical Therapy as developed effective physical therapy programs that can be done via remote office visits for many musculoskeletal problems. These services are 100% covered (no out of pocket expense) by most insurances and due to the COVID-19 outbreak, since these telehealth visits are preferred to help us flatten the curve on the COVID outbreak.

We are so excited to announce the most comprehensive podiatric remote medicine program in our region. Our new telemedicine program connects our physicians to you in the safety and comfort of your home. Using videoconferencing technology, our providers can assess and initiate treatment of many foot and ankle conditions. We can also offer expert opinions of patients that may be outside of our region in areas such as advanced reconstruction, amputation prevention/limb salvage, wound care, 3-D bunion correction, forefoot reconstruction, ankle instability, or lower extremity trauma.
Now, not everything can be treated this way but it is a simple and safe way to start treatment especially with the current risk of COVID-19. Your treatment plan may include a prescription, dispensing medical devices or even establishing remote physical therapy with our partners at FAST physical therapy. Call today or contact our scheduling team through our webpage.
