Typically, Physical Therapy assumes a “physical” visit in a clinic, however with more advanced education and assessment techniques our virtual evaluation is both effective and reliable.  Our diagnostic algorithm, based on the principles established in the McKenzie Method, is perfectly suited to an online evaluation. There are two underling principles advocated by Robin McKenzie that are most pertinent; First, he stressed the importance of Education of the patient in regard to the cause, resolution and prevention of the issue.  Second, he believed it was important to not put our hands on the patient in the first few visits to allow confidence and independence in self management.  We can educate you and not touch you while you are in the comfort and safety of your own home. Not only have we found no difference in the quality or effectiveness of our virtual visits but in fact, we have found they can actually be advantageous! To be able to see the patient in her/his own home getting up from their chair and on/off their bed, having a family member or friend be present to assist and another “ear” to listen to the education/instructions makes a very positive contribution to the treatment process.
