Under Federal Guidelines and Governor Steve Bullock’s Executive Order, we are classified as an Essential Business and will remain open to provide health care services to the Helena Community. Under these orders, patients are permitted to travel to physical therapy visits as this is an essential activity for health and safety.

Telehealth and E-Visits
Telehealth is a method of delivering healthcare through the use of telecommunication tools including a telephone and/or computer. A telehealth visit can be scheduled with your physical therapist in lieu of an onsite clinical visit. This is an excellent way to continue with your rehabilitation and stay in contact with your physical therapist while remaining in the comfort of your home. To participate in telehealth, it is strongly recommended that you have a computer with a web camera and internet connection. Our telehealth visits are HIPAA compliant and all of your personal healthcare information will be protected as if you were at an onsite clinical visit. If this is a service you are interested in, please discuss this with your therapist or contact our clinic at (406)502-1782 or firstname.lastname@example.org
