In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we offer telehealth physical therapy services to any patients who reside in the state of Minnesota. Telehealth services are an excellent option for those who need physical therapy but are at higher risk. By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we can keep both our patients and physical therapy providers safer.
Most insurance plans are covering physical therapy visits via telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Telehealth visits for physical therapy are billed to your health insurance at the same rates, just like in-person visits. We will verify your specific insurance coverage and review it with you before any telehealth visits. You must be a Minnesota resident to receive telehealth services from our physical therapy providers.
For more information on our telehealth services and how they may benefit you, please call or text Wellspring Health Center at (952) 933-1150 or click here to schedule a complimentary consultation!
What is telehealth?
You may be wondering what exactly telehealth is. Essentially, it is a way for us to make sure that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location.
You can access Telehealth services via your smartphone or computer, and you will be able to perform your PT treatments from the comfort of your own home. We will also be able to track your progress and see how you are improving throughout your visits.
At Wellspring Health Center, you can also schedule a Free Telehealth Consultation where you can meet and chat with a physical therapist about your pain condition and treatment options with no obligation.
To determine if your pain condition is appropriate for telehealth physical therapy, please contact us by phone or text at (952) 933-1150, or click here to request a complimentary consultation, so we can provide a brief consultation before scheduling your telehealth visits. There are numerous conditions that we can treat via telehealth, including but not limited to:
- Arthritis pain
- Back pain
- Extremity pain (shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, etc.)
- Headaches & migraines
- Neck Pain
- Post-surgical rehab
- Sports injuries
- And many other pain conditions
In addition to allowing for the practice of social distancing, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, telehealth also has other benefits for patients. As stated by the American Physical Therapy Association, just a few of these include:
- Patients typically in clinical or hospital settings could be managed from their homes.
- Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes.
- Telehealth can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education.
