Three benefits of telehealth for your aches and pains

An aching back. A sore knee or hip. A painful wrist. These are all common aches and pains that people commonly either wake up with or develop as they go about their daily routines.

Dealing with such aches and pains might not be so bad if they happen occasionally. However, they can be tougher to deal with if you feel them every day. Unfortunately, it’s reported that about 25.3 million Americans had pain every day for the preceding three months. Telehealth physical therapy, or virtual PT, can offer many benefits to people living with chronic pain.

Three ways chronic pain sufferers can benefit from telehealth physical therapy

Telehealth physical therapy (PT) is a physical therapy service that takes place over a live online video feed. Using this service can offer chronic pain sufferers benefits like:

  1. Accessibility — People dealing with chronic aches and pains want to get help for their discomfort quickly, and this is one benefit of telehealth PT. In some cases, getting a virtual PT appointment can be up to 60% faster than getting an in-person appointment. In addition, these appointments take place online. This means you can do them from anywhere that you have internet access, including your own home.
  2. Reduced pain — The main goal of seeking help from a physical therapist is to decrease your chronic pain. Working with a physical therapist in a virtual PT session can help you meet this goal. One telehealth PT provider found that 93% of their patients experienced a decrease in their pain after their virtual PT.
  3. Lower cost — Medical services are notorious for being very costly for patients. Even those with health insurance may spend thousands before they reach their deductible. However, you may be surprised how much less virtual PT costs compared to other medical services. For some patients, using telehealth PT led to a 47% cost savings per episode of care.
