In an effort to meet the orthopedic needs in our community, OrthoCarolina began increasing access to their clinics on Monday, May 4, 2020. As an essential business, their decision to increase access to care is based on careful consideration and understanding of the needs of the orthopedic and physical therapy patients in the communities they serve. They understand that orthopedic conditions are not put on hold during a pandemic, and they appreciate your patience as they navigate solutions to provide the same world-class care you’ve come to know in the safest way possible. Here are all the steps they are taking to ensure your safety:

Virtual Therapy: What to Expect
 
During this time when limiting the spread of COVID-19 is critical, virtual therapy makes it possible for patients to continue their recovery safely. Through telemedicine video visits, patients can progress toward their physical or hand-therapy and pain-management goals with support from their therapist, all while minimizing social contact.
 
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Virtual therapy allows patients to complete their therapy without ever leaving home. During a video visit, your therapist will assess your needs and lay out an individualized home exercise program for you. Your therapist will also ensure you understand how to perform each exercise and how each exercise supports your recovery. This way, you can continue the exercise routine on your own to build strength and make progress until your next visit. WATCH OUR VIDEO VISIT TUTORIAL.
