Reston-based Physical Therapy Clinic Turns to Telehealth

Reston resident Taruna Rijhwani knew telehealth was the way to go when she added the digital service to her Reston-based physical therapy clinic more than two years ago.

Now, as COVID-19 public health emergency prompts the restaurant industry to shift to delivery and carryout, Rijhwani says she’s shifting Health Watchers Physical Therapy and Wellness to video visits and telehealth.

Here’s more from the clinic on telehealth appointments:

They use secure HIPAA compliant platforms to connect with their patients and are able to continue to provide care without asking patients to leave their homes, keeping them safe & healthy.

Physical Therapist, Taruna Rijhwani has specialized training in the advanced system of Physical Therapy called Mckenzie Method which is especially suited for telehealth and guiding patients through right movements to help with their back, neck, shoulder or knee problems.

She notes that the number of patients coming into her office on 11250 Roger Bacon Drive has been steadily decreasing.

“We are making it up by transitioning to telehealth or video visits,” she told Reston Now.

Rijhwani initially began providing the service to keep the business relevant in the digital age.

“Look at Amazon. That’s our inspiration right there. No one goes retail shopping as much as they used to,” she told Reston Now.
