— Telehealth Therapies in Neurological Diagnoses —
Patients with neurological diagnoses are discovering easier access to important therapies. Through the virtual use of real-time video and audio sessions, telehealth therapies are increasing the ability for neurology patients to connect with clinical specialists across America.
Rural areas often suffer limited access to specialty care. In addition to medical evaluations and treatments, telemedicine provides rural patients convenient access to licensed professionals in neurological care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and medical specialties.
Also, for patients living in Florida cities like Tampa or Sarasota, telehealth appointments via phone or computer promote safer care for those staying home due to their health conditions or COVID-19 risks.
Connecting Care Teams of Neurologists, Therapists, and Specialists
Florida Neurologist Dr. Deborah Boland is one of only a handful of Movement Disorder specialists in the Tampa Bay area. As founder of Be Mobile Neurology, she pioneered Central Florida’s mobile delivery of at-home neurological services. To fully meet patients’ needs, Dr. Boland also developed innovative Direct Pay Care options and affordable memberships offering unparalleled telehealth access via calls, videos, texts, and e-mails.
During prior years as a Physical Therapist and as Neurologist in a hospital-centered practice, Dr. Boland identified how therapies helped patients achieve the best possible outcomes. Skilled therapy services improved functional movement, range of motion, speaking, writing, swallowing, and other activities.
As a wholistic approach for current patients, Dr. Boland may provide referrals or involve other healthcare professionals, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, or nutritionists.
Treating Neurological Conditions to Improve Quality of Life
In addition to improving performance of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and providing neurological rehabilitation for brain injury or stroke patients, skilled therapies can be vital for relieving symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, as well as other neurological diseases, movement disorders, and conditions of the nervous system.
Conveniently, patients and caregivers can leverage telehealth for asking questions and achieving a full understanding of neurologic disease diagnoses and therapy options. Unlike traditional office settings that may rush patients, Dr. Boland’s at-home care model and telemedicine services extend ample time for explaining individualized treatments, discussing plans of action, managing medications, and initiating treatments and therapies to support patients in achieving the highest quality of life.
