Teletherapy is a remote clinical service capitalizing on technology for patients seeking a time effective way to receive physical therapy. Physical therapy services include health-related information, advice, and education, as well as health promotion activities, training, and intervention for those who find it’s an economic disadvantage and inconvenience to leave their workplace or home for physical therapy treatment sessions.
Additionally, this model is beneficial for those seeking a specialist when there is not one located nearby. Not only is Dr. Chasse a women’s health clinical specialist, but she also specializes in treatment approaches for lymphedema, Matrix Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Franklin Method, and Integrative Systems Model. Please review information about these specific treatment approaches under the Services tab on her website.
Dr. Chasse will begin Teletherapy by determining:
- If you are qualified for remote services or if an in-person intervention is necessary.
- Your safety during services.
- Receive written and oral informed consent to receive Teletherapy.
- Determine the form of communication that will be used.
- Obtain 2-3 means of contacting the patient.
Telemedicine is the way of the future, according to the World Market of Telehealth, with a projection of 1.8 million users in 2017, and doubling in 2018. Telemedicine literally means, “Healing from a distance,” according to the World Health Organization. Telehealth refers to an extensive array of remote healthcare services delivered by technology. Dr. Chasse will continue to personalize treatment to meet the needs of each patient using Telephysicaltherapy for patient care.
