TeleRehab Now Available
Dear Physician and Referral Partners,
In the wake of recent events, STAR Physical Therapy is taking every precaution to contain the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. As outpatient physical therapy has been defined by the CDC as an essential medical service during this crisis, all 67 of our outpatient physical therapy locations remain open to safely serve both new and existing patients. We continue to follow all CDC guidelines in every location to ensure the safety of our patients, our staff, and the community.
To ensure that patients who are ill or at risk continue to have access to essential physical therapy, occupational therapy, and workers compensation services, we have launched our new TeleRehab program.
What is TeleRehab?
TeleRehab is an alternative to traditional clinic-based outpatient rehabilitation that can be completed in the comfort of the patient’s home. Our TeleRehab visits utilize a platform that ensures HIPAA / HITECH compliance and utilizes 128-bit encryption for patient privacy.
How does it work?
TeleRehab occurs on a scheduled date and time just like a traditional clinic visit. However, TeleRehab visits have patients meet one-on-one with a therapist virtually. During these virtual visits, our therapists can provide many of the same skilled services we offer in the clinic including an assessment of the patient’s condition, patient education, and progression of exercises to help improve:
Range of Motion
Patients simply receive an email with a personalized link to click to begin the appointment at their scheduled time. The only requirements of the patient are that they have:
Smartphone, Tablet, or Computer with Camera and Microphone Enabled
Internet Connection to access Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari
Access to E-mail
A comfortable, well-lit space in their home with room for movement and exercise
Comfortable clothing that allows for movement and exercise
Depending on their condition, TeleRehab visits typically last 30 minutes to an hour.
How to schedule?
To schedule a TeleRehab visit, patients can simply call their closest STAR Physical Therapy location or our central referral number at 1-866-568-9752.

Thank you and stay healthy,
Dear Physician Partners and Staff,
In the wake of recent events, I want to assure you STAR Physical Therapy is taking every precaution to contain the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. We are currently still treating patients and accepting new patients. We are taking extra measures to ensure sanitation at our clinics and we are following all CDC guidelines for patients and staff.
During this time, we are going to step back from having a physical presence in your office; however, I am available to drop off prescription pads or anything else your office may need. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.
