Top four benefits of using a virtual physical therapy service for work injuries

There are many reasons so many people are choosing to use virtual physical therapy services. It’s more accessible to many people. It’s often easier to get a virtual physical therapy appointment, and the list goes on. However, one of the main reasons that millions of Americans are turning to virtual physical therapy services for help with work injuries is they can offer many benefits.

Four benefits that virtual physical therapy services can offer for your work injuries:

  1. Doesn’t impact your work schedule as much — Work schedules are often filled with budget meetings, client calls and many other tasks. Your work schedule may be so full that you just don’t feel there is time for physical therapy for a work injury.

Fortunately, virtual physical therapy sessions can have a decreased impact on your schedule. They don’t require driving time or waiting in a room to see your physical therapist. This means that virtual physical therapy can fit more easily into your busy schedule.

  1. Helps you and your company save money — You and your company may both be partially responsible for the costs of your virtual physical therapy sessions. You’ll have to take a look at your health insurance policy to see exactly who is responsible for what. However, doing virtual physical therapy tends to cost less than in-person physical therapy. One medical study found that virtual cardiac rehab had 58% lower costs than in-person rehab.

  1. Can help get you back to work faster — A primary goal of virtual physical therapists is to help you recover from injuries as fast as possible. This can be especially helpful for patients with work injuries, since prolonged absences can lead to decreased paychecks and other issues.

  1. Works to reduce your risk of future work-related injuries — Virtual physical therapists can diagnose your work injury and help you address it; they can also help you avoid similar injuries in the future. Your physical therapist can show you therapeutic exercises that can strengthen your body and improve your mobility, which can reduce injury risk. They can also offer ergonomic advice that is designed to improve posture and decrease posture-related work conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
