Make Your Physical Therapy Practice Mobile During COVID

Taking Your Physical Therapy Practice Mobile During COVID

The recent COVID-19 outbreak in the United States and around the world has changed the way many of us go about our daily lives as well as the ways in which we interact with others and operate our businesses. For those working in industries that require face to face or even one on one contact with customers and clients, transitioning to the ‘new normal’ has required a lot of changes and a lot of creativity to stay afloat.

Outside PT with Masks

One such industry is Physical Therapy (PT). Generally requiring close contact between client and therapist, PT is not necessarily ideal during a pandemic. Many practitioners have transitioned to utilizing telehealth to communicate with their clients. However, technology has its limits and may not be the best option for those who are in need of more assistance or are looking for more personalized, in-person treatment. Because of this, some Physical Therapists are adopting the idea of a mobile practice and have begun bringing their services safely to their clients at home. Though both telehealth and mobile PT practices can be effective, taking the extra steps to meet your clients in their home provides a level of convenience and personalization that will definitely be appreciated.

For those who have opted to provide mobile services, or who always have, it is important to not only ensure the safety of both your client and therapists but to also have the necessary tools to take your practice on the road during a pandemic.

Here are our tops product picks for mobile Physical Therapists:
