COVID-19 Treatment Options for Patients 

Updated May 14, 2020 

Live Appointments at Progression PT

We are offering a limited amount of in-clinic appointments at our 601 Ewing Street location. To minimize the likelihood of one’s exposure to COVID-19 during treatment at PPTP, we will only schedule in-clinic therapy sessions for patients who are considered as having a low risk of potential COVID-19 complications. Patients
must verbally acknowledge that PPTP may reschedule or cancel their appointment if it is determined they have not met our Patient Screening Requirements.
Updated Patient Intake Protocol*

● Must be actively practicing social and physical distancing guidelines
​● Has had no contact with confirmed, potential-positive, or recently recovered cases of COVID-19.
● Must not have traveled to a COVID-19 hotspot within a two week (14 days) period.
● Free of all symptoms of COVID-19 and have been symptom-free for 14 days (fever, cough, or
shortness of breath, and others.
● Has access to a homemade or medical-grade face covering, and agrees to wear it for the full
duration of time spent in the clinic. We do not have extra masks on hand for those who might forget, and unfortunately, we will have to  reschedule your appointment if this is the case.

Updated Practice-Space Precautions
  • ●Patients will not share a common waiting space.
    ●Patients will be seen with ample degrees of separation between treatment areas.
    ●All non-treatment surfaces (doorknobs, countertops) will be sanitized each hour.
    ●All treatment tables, therapy tools, and exercise equipment will be sanitized after every use using a medical-grade viral/bacterial disinfectant.
    ●Alcohol-based hand rub is strategically placed throughout the clinic.
    ●Helpful educational signage regarding hand washing, sneeze, and cough etiquette is strategically placed throughout the clinic.
    ● In order to reduce the likelihood of COVID communal spread, pre-packaged therabands are
    available for purchase, and will be safely stored at the clinic. Each patient will have their own
    band to use at every visit.

Remote Appointments at Progression PT

Telemedicine is like a virtual house call that allows you and your therapist to discuss and treat certain physical issues. We are utilizing an online platform that is easy to use, secure, and HIPAA Compliant. Telehealth sessions have been successful for patients wanting to maintain or improve their mobility, strength, flexibility, balance, ergonomics, posture, and core strength. Patients, particularly those considered high-risk, who require these treatments should be scheduled with a remote appointment option.

Who's Covered for Telemedicine?
During the public health crisis, Medicare and other private insurers have expanded their coverage to include telemedicine treatment options. Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, Medicare, and United Health Care have each expanded coverage at this time.
