Optimal Health Center + Telehealth

What is telehealth?

Telehealth is almost exactly the same as a regular doctor’s visit -- but by video chat.

Top doctors around the world rely on telehealth to help their patients who can’t physically come in to see them. This is especially valuable right now during our current social distancing restrictions.

Of course, as your doctor, telehealth doesn’t allow us to use certain manual therapies with you.

However, a large majority of the therapies you (and most of our patients) need -- can be easily done yourself, in the safety of your own home. All you need are the right instructions!

Don’t think that’s possible? Rehab homework – teaching our patients about things they can do at home specific to their issue – is often a normal part of how we take care of our patients after in person appointments. Based on feedback from our patients we know for certain how much this has helped them feel better and get them out of pain or discomfort.

This ‘rehab homework’ is exactly what you get after each of our telehealth video chats -- adding new ‘tools’ to your toolbox, so you can work towards fixing yourself, until you are able to come see us!

If you’re here on our website, you probably found us because of our reputation for getting patients well. We are famous for teaching you how to get out of pain quickly, and most importantly -- how to keep it from coming back.

We always expect the same great results from our telehealth patients as we get with our ‘face-to-face’ patients.

What is a telehealth visit like? It’s easy!

Here’s what to do:

Call us! We can help you pick a time for your video session that works for you: (215)-493-4463

What kinds of problems do you fix? We are a full service Chiropractic wellness practice, our main goal is to help optimize how you move, how you think and how you exercise and care for you body through our comprehensive approach. If your in pain, you don't need to be. Our virtual visits can assist in guiding you to self care for back, neck, knee, shoulder pain...and much more!

Fill out & return your paperwork: If you’re a new patient you can access online forms here.

What you’ll need: Laptop (ideal), tablet or even mobile phone (well charged, or with a charging cord, so you don’t run out of battery). A fairly clear room in your home (I’ll need to see you perform certain movements, exercises, etc.). Comfortable clothing (we’ll be checking your mobility, but nothing strenuous!)

What’s the visit like? We’ll have questions about your pain, to help us learn about your injury (the consult). Then we’ll see how well you perform certain movements (the exam). Then we’ll be able to tell you why you’re hurting (your diagnosis), what it’ll take to fix you (your treatment), and exactly how quickly we expect you to get better (your prognosis).

Your ‘rehab homework’: We’ll explain each of your home therapies, and you’ll try them out during our visit, so you know how to do them. Then we’ll email your personalized list of exercises, stretches, etc. -- with video clips showing you how to do each one (in case you forget!). Each session you’ll get new, updated ‘homework’, as you improve.

How many sessions? It depends on your personal issue and our Doctors will be able to give you a better idea after your evaluation and determine the best care plan for you.

If you’re in pain right now -- or maybe you’ve had pain for years -- do something about it today.

Give us a call today! We’re looking forward to meeting you, and hoping to see you get back to the pain-free life you’ve been missing!
