● Athletes and others with good body awareness - being on your own for your home exercise program requires you to be in tune with your body and how it is moving.
● People with common orthopedic or sports-related injuries - things like sprains, strains, and overuse injuries are commonly treated by physical therapists. This can make it easier for your PT to select assessment and treatment techniques that are more readily translated across the online space.
● People who are comfortable with technology - you do not need to be a technology whiz but having some familiarity with online video communication helps!
● Existing and returning patients - if your physical therapist knows you, it is easier to work with you virtually.
