Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers involves virtual medical appointments you attend from the comfort of your home, office, or another convenient location. With telehealth, you don’t have to worry about commuting to the doctor’s office or leaving your home if you’re unable to.

Using just a phone, tablet, computer, or another electronic device, you meet with an orthopaedic specialist who evaluates your condition and makes treatment recommendations.

What can telehealth be used for?

If you experience an injury or chronic pain, experts at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers are here for you. They diagnose and treat a wide array of musculoskeletal conditions including:

  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Ankle and foot injuries
  • Neck or shoulder pain
  • Elbow and wrist pain
  • Hip, knee, and ankle pain
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Fractures
  • Tendonitis
  • Other sports injuries

While not all treatments are available through telemedicine, your orthopaedic and sports medicine specialist offers some solutions virtually, such as medication prescriptions and home-care instructions. They let you know the best next steps to diagnose or treat your condition.

What happens during a telehealth appointment?

During your scheduled appointment, an orthopaedic specialist contacts you via phone, computer, tablet, or another electronic device. You can take them in the comfort of your own home or office. Your virtual meetings are entirely secure and confidential, and 

Your provider reviews your symptoms, discusses your medical history, and examines painful or injured areas virtually through your device screen. 

They let you know what’s likely causing discomfort and might recommend further diagnostic testing, such as blood tests or imaging procedures, at-home care, or in-office treatments.

Which orthopaedic treatments are available?

After confirming your diagnosis, the experts at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers might suggest one of the following treatments to relieve pain, accelerate healing, and prevent reinjury:

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE)
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
  • Steroid injections
  • Physical therapy/functional training
  • Sports or post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Massage and soft tissue manipulation
  • Traction and other fracture treatments
  • Ultrasound or laser therapy
  • Wound care and debridement
  • Custom orthotics, braces, or splints
  • Surgical procedures

The specialists at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers personalize each treatment based on the type of injury or disease you have. They recommend conservative treatments when possible and offer surgery for severe injuries.

Don’t let the inconvenience of in-office appointments prevent you from meeting with an orthopaedic specialist. Schedule a telehealth appointment with the experts at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers by phone or online today.
