Stamford Physical Therapy now offers Telehealth for new and existing patients! Safely meet with Sarah or Shani from the comfort of your own home, from a smartphone, tablet or computer with a webcam.
Setting up for your virtual appointment
Sessions will vary from 30 – 60 minutes. We have put together a list of guidelines to help you navigate the new platform and get the most out of your virtual physical therapy session:
You need a device with both a microphone and a webcam(built into most laptops).
A well-lit room is preferred, so we can see you clearly!
Room to move! We will need to see you full body and close up, so make sure you have room to back up from the screen.
Ability to angle your screen, it will help you to show us different parts of your body, such as legs vs. neck. So, laptop or webcam/desktop which can be moved or angled, work much better than a tablet which cannot be angled/tipped easily.
Ability to sit, stand and lay down: we will walk you through multiple positions, such as sitting, standing and laying down. We recommend you do the session in a room where you have access to all three positions. A yoga mat, couch or bed will work for laying down.
Props! Please have 2 pillows and bath towel available. If you have other items such as a yoga block, yoga strap, or resistance band, please collect and have available(but they are not essential).
Audio: if you are wearing a headset, you will be tethered to your device and unable to fully participate. Please use speaker or bluetooth/wireless headphones. If you will be using the speaker, please arrange for a quiet room(to the best of your ability).
About a Telehealth Session:
Our sessions will include history-taking, functional training, posture/body mechanics and prescription exercises. We understand that this is not the same as in-person, but we are confident that we can provide value with our Telehealth option.
