Transforming Pain Management: The Power of Virtual Physical Therapy


WAYNE, PA — In the realm of pain management, the advent of virtual physical therapy is reshaping conventional approaches to care, offering a more accessible and personalized solution for chronic pain sufferers.

According to Dr. Meredith Mayes, Vice President of Physical Therapy at HUSK, “Virtual physical therapy through telehealth with a licensed physical therapist can eliminate the inconveniences that may be standing in a person’s way.”

Dr. Mayes emphasizes the importance of consistency in exercise to alleviate joint and muscle pain, stating, “We work with patients to address neck, back and jaw pain, headaches, shoulder and arm pain, hip and leg pain, injuries from sports such as tennis, golf and pickleball, and so much more.”

Highlighting the merits of virtual therapy, she notes, “Time-saving virtual appointments make it easier to adhere to the program and commit to the number of appointments necessary to achieve goals. The required attention to daily exercise typically takes 15 minutes or less.”

The tailored guidance and comparable outcomes of virtual physical therapy not only enhance patient experience but also pave the way for a more efficient and effective approach to pain management.

Moreover, Dr. Mayes highlights the financial accessibility of HUSK’s virtual physical therapy services, stating, “In many cases, HUSK virtual physical therapy is covered by wellness benefits already provided by an insurance company or employer.” This affordability aspect further underscores the inclusive nature of this innovative healthcare solution.
