“The initial assessment is key in providing the right therapy program,” said Dr. Jason Garrett of Airrosti. “Diagnosis from a skilled therapist ensures you are taking the right steps in addressing the root cause of pain and helps you avoid exacerbating injuries from self-treatment.”

To assist patients who need care but are unable to come into the office due to Covid-19, Airrosti has launched a telehealth option to complement in-office services. This is an especially critical offering for patients with chronic or acute injuries who need relief now but prefer, or are required, to stay home.
Telehealth appointments allow Airrosti providers to continue treating patients experiencing chronic and acute pain from soft tissue injuries. Through video appointments, providers work to diagnose the root cause of pain, then employ specific therapy and rehab exercises to correct and prevent future injuries. The therapy plan is flexible and allows patients to utilize telehealth throughout a treatment plan or a combination of telehealth and in-person appointments.
An initial trial of more than 1,500 telehealth appointments reports 80% improvement in patients with less than three visits. Telehealth appointments have also garnered a 100% referral rate showing that patients value Airrosti's telehealth service model. Results have been so successful that telehealth services will continue after the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The initial assessment is key in providing the right therapy program,” said Dr. Jason Garrett of Airrosti. “Your neck may be hurting but the root cause could be your back, or vice versa. Diagnosis from a skilled therapist ensures you are taking the right steps in addressing the root cause of pain and helps you avoid exacerbating injuries from self-treatment.”
Providers conduct a series of diagnostics tests via video chat to accurately pinpoint the cause of pain. Then, they create a guided treatment plan that includes therapy instructionals using at-home tools such as foam rollers and lacrosse balls. These items can be ordered from Airrosti if patients do not have them on hand.
Patients who are not sure if Airrosti can help with their specific pain or injury, can request an assessment. In cases where the provider determines a different course of action is warranted, patients will be provided with guidance on where to go for help.
Currently, most insurance companies are covering telehealth visits. Telehealth FAQs are available on the Airrosti website at http://www.airrosti.com/telehealth. Appointments can be made at http://www.airrosti.com or by calling 1-800-404-6050.
