La Plata Physical Therapy Now Offering Virtual Therapy

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused major disruption within the U.S. and worldwide. With this ever-changing current climate, it is essential that we are able to adapt our routines to make the best out of these difficult times. At La Plata Physical Therapy & Wellness, we too have made adaptations to enhance our services, in order to maintain contact and provide the best care possible to our patients.

On March 30th we decided to temporarily close our doors at both our physical therapy practice and our wellness center following tighter restrictions implemented by Governor Larry Hogan. While we did not take this decision lightly, the health and well-being of our patients and staff is paramount. In substitute of this, we have been maintaining contact with our patients, and providing virtual therapy through the use of telehealth, and video communication. Telehealth allows our therapists to have a focused interaction with the patient allowing assessment, personalized health advice, and delivery of home exercise programs from the safety of their own home. Our early response to this method has been extremely positive and boasts a range of other advantages.

Staff at our wellness center continue to contact clients and provide exercise guidelines and home exercise programs while our gym is closed. 

Towards the end of last year, we expanded our practice adding additional treatment rooms and increasing therapeutic floor space. In light of the recent global events, and with social distancing likely to be advised for some time, we are fortunate to have the extra space and look forward to utilizing it once reopening is safe and advised. When we do, we will maintain focus on patient safety, and will continue to take every precaution necessary to do so. 

If you would like more information on the services we provide you can access our website at laplatapt.com, call us at 301-392-3700 or email at lpptwell@yahoo.com. For other updates and health related content follow us on Facebook and on Instagram. 

All of our staff at La Plata Physical Therapy & Wellness wish a safe and healthy quarantine and we look forward to reopening our doors in the not too distant future!
