Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth uses modern communications technology to allow you to meet with your health care provider from the comfort of your home. 

The team at Shift Wellness uses a secure video conferencing service that you can access on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. You need a private room and a reliable internet connection. Then you can meet with your provider without having to come into the practice.

The team at Shift Wellness can diagnose many conditions by talking to you about your symptoms and observing you online. If they think that additional testing or in-office treatment is necessary, you can schedule an appointment at your convenience. They also offer ongoing care through telehealth.

What services are available through telehealth?

While many of the services offered at Shift Wellness are hands-on therapies delivered in person, the team can offer modified appointments through telehealth. For example, they offer:

Physical therapy

You can meet with your physical therapist via telehealth. They can instruct you to move through your exercises and stretches. The video allows them to observe your movements and provide advice and modifications to maximize your session.

Functional medicine

You can also meet with the functional medicine specialists through telehealth. You can discuss your symptoms and follow-up on how your nutritional adjustments and supplements affect your health. Checking in on your weight loss program is also possible.

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care includes more than manual adjustments. The chiropractors at Shift Wellness offer holistic health plans. You can meet with your chiropractor and discuss your symptoms. They can provide instructions on exercises and stretches to practice at home. 

Personal training

The team at Shift Wellness also offers one-on-one conditioning, yoga, and Pilates sessions via its telehealth program. You can practice in the comfort of your home, while still under the careful supervision of your trainer. 

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Telehealth provides many benefits. It’s incredibly convenient. You can schedule your appointment when it is best for you and don’t need to take time off work or away from your family. 

You save time with telemedicine. You don’t have to worry about unreliable public transport or traffic. You also save money by not having to pay for gas, parking, ride-shares, or other fees or fares. Telehealth also reduces your risk of coming into contact with sick people to protect your health and wellness.
