New Pain Relieving DVDs for At-Home Physical Therapy

Share Article

Insurance no longer a barrier to accessing vital physical therapy treatment. Insufficient insurance prohibits millions each year from receiving valuable pain-relieving physical therapy. Rehab In Motion aims to change that. The company released three new DVDs that offer unprecedented assistance with physical therapy (PT) for individuals who suffer from chronic pain or merely need short-term rehabilitation from injury or surgery. The DVDs offer interactive, instructive demonstrations designed for home use as both an adjunct to clinic-based therapy and an alternative for individuals unable to access PT due to insufficient insurance.

Rehab In Motion was founded by orthopedic doctors Samuel Hess, MD and James McLoughlin, MD. Both witnessed firsthand how insufficient insurance and lack of patient education impaired the kinesthetic recuperation of their patients. The industry standard for at-home therapy or continuation of care typically consists of handing patients archaic drawings of exercises. Rehab In Motion DVDs provide detailed and informative instruction on over 75 stretches and exercises for the back and spine, upper extremity (shoulder, elbow and hand) and lower extremity (hip and knee). Each exercise is demonstrated by a licensed physical therapist in a one-on-one format to ensure the exercises are executed properly and effectively for maximum patient benefit.

Current physical therapy, while excellent in most cases, has many obstacles to success. First, the cost can be prohibitive, as many insurance programs limit the number of sessions to be covered, often not enough to complete the process and there are costly co-pays for the patient. Secondly, access is an issue for many. Therapy involves travel to the therapy center twice or even three times a week, which can be a tremendous inconvenience, leading to missed sessions and incomplete therapy. Finally, after formal therapy is over, the therapist frequently provides the patient with a home program consisting of diagrams on paper of complex exercises to be done on their own. Too often, motivation to complete these exercises is hard to find, and as a result, they are done less frequently and incorrectly as time passes.

Rehab In Motion DVDs are used in the privacy, comfort and convenience of one’s home, and save time and money associated with ongoing physical therapy treatments. The DVDs are not a replacement for traditional “hands-on” therapy; rather, they fill the void of a convenient and cost-effective alternative for patients who will benefit from additional physical therapy or need an alternative to clinic-based rehabilitation due to insufficient insurance.

Rehab In Motion DVDs are available online at The cost of the DVDs are the equivalent of one co-pay for "hands on" PT treatments.
