Last year we introduced free Physical Therapy Check ups at APT and had an overwhelming response. This year, due to the current stay at home order in Illinois we think this service is more important than ever, so we have decided to offer check ups virtually!
Besides causing many of us financial and enormous emotional stress, the Coronavirus and stay at home order may also be affecting our physical health. Changing sleep patterns, altered exercise routines, and working at the kitchen table can all contribute to those familiar aches and pains starting to creep back into our bodies. Now is a great time to be proactive and sign up for your annual Physical Therapy Check up, so you stay healthy.
Virtual Physical Therapy may not be something that you have envisioned, but we have found virtual treatment sessions to be an effective and increasingly popular way to rehabilitate in the comfort of your home. Our virtual evaluation is similar to an in-clinic evaluation. But instead of us moving you, we watch you perform specific movements in different functional positions and then evaluate the quality and quantity of these motions.
During your virtual check-up, we will capture an overall picture of your musculoskeletal health that can be compared from year to year. We will check your posture, joint motion, balance, muscle flexibility, and ability to perform common movement patterns. We will identify problems that may be contributing to pain or poor movement quality and/or function before they lead to pain or degenerative changes that impact your quality of life.
