On the heels of our recent launch of HelloPT — an innovative digital PT tool that combines telehealth tech with tailored injury prevention and virtual access to licensed physical therapists — our president and CEO Dr. Joe Smith spoke to Orthopedics This Week about the importance of offering innovations in the way that people engage with therapy.
“Physical therapy can do wonders, from helping someone understand what causes their musculoskeletal problems, all the way to helping them resolve it,” Dr. Smith told OTW. “It just shouldn’t be so hard to access. We are trying to change that by providing an easy and informative on-ramp to the physical therapy experience.”
The publication also spoke to physical therapist Marc Mirisch about HelloPT and its power to improve patient access to therapy solutions. “The biggest question people have when they get injured is ‘what am I supposed to do?’” Mark said. “HelloPT helps people to get the answers they need conveniently and without any hassle.
“Whether they are seeking preventative care or trying [to] help an injury, they can access HelloPT to get answers to what steps they should be taking next. They may just need to do some exercises to get better, or they might need to access a physical therapist through HelloPT to evaluate them. HelloPT gives them the freedom to easily seek out the help that they need.”
