“Don’t you have to use your hands to stretch people or help them exercise?”

Some cases can be treated just as effectively via Telehealth as in-person. Many cases can at least be started via Telehealth until the client is able to get an in-person appointment at a clinic or if the client and clinician decide together an in-person appointment might be more beneficial.
