Online Physical Therapy Telehealth Treatments
Telehealth Physical Therapy is an effective form of online treatment that can help you reduce pain or recovery from injury from the comfort of your own home. Julie has been practicing Telehealth Physical Therapy for over two years now and was one of the first Physical Therapists in this area to venture into this type of treatment.
Julie will personally guide you through a full evaluation to determine exactly what is causing your pain or limitations and teach a customized home treatment program to address the impairments found in the evaluation.

Manual Therapy techniques are skilled hand movements and skilled passive movements of joints and soft tissue and are intended to improve tissue extensibility, increase range of motion, induce relaxation, mobilize or manipulate soft tissue and joints, modulate pain and reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation or restriction.
Manual therapy is what sets Dr. Julie FitSmith apart from other clinics. Julie has a manual therapy certification, extensive training in the application of manual therapy and years of experience in patient care.
Therapeutic exercise is the systematic performance or execution of planned physical movements or activities intended to enable the patient to remediate or prevent impairments of body functions and structures, enhance activities and participation, reduce risk, optimize overall health, and enhance fitness and well-being.
Therapeutic Exercise is key in getting you back to your life without pain or limitation. While manual therapy is necessary for healing, therapeutic exercise will give you the strength back to return to your every day life. Now, most of the therapeutic exercises can be performed outside of the clinic so once you have a very good understanding of the exercise it is the patient’s responsibility to continue doing this exercise. When patients are in the clinic they will not spend time on things they can do on their own. It is a waste of time and money to do things you can do on your own time in the clinic.
