Telehealth Physical Therapy in Nyc
What is Telehealth Physical Therapy?
Telemedicine is the the practice of offering healthcare through digital communication. Patients are able to schedule appointments with their physicians (whether it be in the physical therapy practice or otherwise) and then communicate with them via phone call or video chat. Services that can be provided through telehealth include information pertaining to your condition, an assessment of your current symptoms if you're suffering from a condition/injury, and instruction on how to perform at-home treatments in your current living space.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic that is presently sweeping the country (especially here in New York) telemedicine has now become a crucial service that is being offered to patients who require medical attention.
Physical therapy is no exception, which is why Llin PT is proud to announce that we are now offering patients telehealth physical therapy in NYC and the surrounding New York area.

There are actually many exercises that you can do on your own at home. If you’re feeling pain in any of these areas, these exercises are a great way to target them and feel some relief!
Exercises For Knee Pain
If you experience any knee pain, these exercises may be beneficial to you. Knee issues may include a hard time balancing, sharp knee pain, pain when you move your leg. If you have any of these symptoms, these may work for you!
Quadriceps Stretch- Stand straight with both feet on the ground. Next, Bend one leg towards your back and hold it with the corresponding hand. Hold for 10 seconds, then switch to the other side.
Half Squat- Stand with your feet about a foot apart. Keep your back straight and sit into a squatting position. Hold this stretch for 15 seconds.
Leg Extensions- Sit in a chair with your feet on the ground. Next, straighten one leg and then put it back down. Do this as many times as you can for each leg.
Exercises For Hip Pain
Hip pain is very common and can be extremely painful. These exercises target your hips and not only stretch them but they can also strengthen your hips!
Side Leg Raises- Lay down on your side with your legs straight out. Lift the leg that is closest to the ceiling as far as you can and put it back down. Do this as many times as you can on each side.
Glute Lifts- Lay on your stomach with both legs straight. Lift one leg straight towards the ceiling as far as you can.
Hamstring Curl- Stand straight with both feet on the ground. Curl one leg backward at the knee, bringing your foot towards the ceiling.
Exercises For Your Shoulders
Just like hip pain, shoulder pain is very common. It can be caused by many day-to-day activities or even just bad posture. These shoulder exercises can help relieve this pain if they are done often:
Superman- This exercise is done laying on your stomach. Its name comes from the position of your body, it looks as if you’re flying like superman. From this position, you will lift your arms and legs while keeping your stomach planted on the ground.
Scapular Rotation- Stand straight and without shrugging your shoulders, lift your arm at a 45-degree angle and lift as high as you can without moving your shoulders.
Shoulder Tap- Get into a push-up position. You will stay with your arms straight and instead of pushing up and down, you will tap your left hand to your right shoulder. Repeat for both sides 10 times each.
