Here Are Some Questions People Frequently Have About Virtual Sessions:

How does Virtual Sessions work when you can’t physically see me?

It is still the same. We can see you, assess how you are moving and guide you through the movements so we can determine what is going on and what needs to be done to help you. Nothing changes, we would do the same thing if you were physically with us.


How is a virtual visit different than an in-person visit?

There is no difference, other than the computer or phone screen. We listen to you and then I ask a series of questions to find out what’s wrong. Based on what you tell me I will have you demonstrate some simple movements and we will know from our extensive experience what is causing the problem. From there I will tell you the right things to be doing to get relief and prevent the problem from getting worse and prolong the suffering and worry.


How can a Virtual Session help with Back Pain?

No matter if your back pain has come on suddenly or you have suffered for years and have “tried everything” we can help you. Back pain can be frustrating and a lot of people lose hope that it can ever be “fixed”, that’s where working with a specialist is different and we can help you.


How can a Virtual Session help with Knee Pain?

If you are being slowed down or are worrying over increased pain, swelling, stiffness or catching in your knees we can certainly help you. If you want a natural solution to finally fix your knee situation and to not have to depend on painkillers, injections, braces or needing surgery then you are just the person we love to help!


How can a Virtual Session help with Neck Pain?

Neck pain can be very debilitating whether it is a nagging ache, stiffness, limited motion, fatigue or if it has started to bring on headaches or numbness and tingling. We help people all the time who are struggling with neck pain, limited mobility, difficulty sleeping and being as active as they want. 


How can a Virtual Session help with Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain is often more of a matter of “when” and not “if” it will happen in one’s lifetime. The important thing is to take action and work with a Specialist right away. We have helped countless clients avoid having to go down the path of injections and surgery. And importantly we help them so they can sleep soundly at night(even on their side), reach overhead, work and keep active exactly how they want.


How can a Virtual Session help with Sciatica, Hip and Pelvic Pain?

Many people struggle with being able to sit, stand, bend over, walk , get in and out of the car, sleep and stay active and fit like they want because of sciatica, hip or pelvic pain. As experts we look at you as a whole person and are able to identify exactly what is contributing to your pain and fix it, for good.


How can a Virtual Session help with Arthritis, Osteoporosis and Poor Posture?

Many people are told that they have “bad joints or bones” without much direction on what they can do beyond just masking the pain with pills and injections. It is critical to work with a Specialist to be assessed and get the best plan to keep your joints and bones healthy so you can avoid joint replacements, fractures and having to stop doing the activities you love.


How can a Virtual Session help with Balance to protect against Falls and Fractures?

These sessions are excellent for people that are worried about or have noticed a decline in their stability and balance. Especially since a majority of falls occur in the home, no better way to develop a program is to work virtually with a Specialist. We can see how your home is set up and create a strength, stability and balance program that is customized for you and safe to complete in your home!


I don’t have any workout equipment at home. Can I still use Virtual Services?

Absolutely. No equipment is needed. Based on the resources you have available, the demands of your schedule we construct a personal program that is best for you and one that you WILL be able to do on your own. No need to buy expensive equipment or worry your program will go on for hours and you will never “do it.” We work with you to make certain you are successful and your custom program is perfectly fit to you, your preferences and the realities of the demands you encounter daily.


What technology do I need to know how to use for my Virtual Sessions?

We take care of everything and only use the best specialized secure software and systems. If you have a phone, tablet or computer and can open an email then you are all set. 🙂 Just click the link we send you a few minutes before your session and that’s it!


How can I make sure the session is a success?

Try to close other streaming applications ( Netflix, video games, etc…) Wear comfortable clothes you can move in and we can see your form, alignment and movements easily. Make sure you have room to move around and there’s plenty of light. Try to be in a quiet space and limit distractions or interruptions the best you can. Show up ready  to expect an amazing experience and get the help you want!!


Will I be recorded?

No. But, you can ask to have the session recorded and sent to you. Many clients find this helpful so they can review exactly what we talked about, keep track of their progress and celebrate in all their improvements. Your journey to start fixing and finding freedom from aches, nagging pain and worry over your health and ability to be active can start today from the comfort of your own home. 



There’s no need to take two hours out of your day to get ready and go travel to see a specialist. Virtual visits give you the ease, convenience and comfort, of getting the care you need from the place you are most comfortable- your home.
