Physical Therapy in Times of COVID-19
St. Lucia pediatric physical therapist, Elaine Clements, works remotely to continue therapy treatments for underserved children with disabilities. The island is under mandatory stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Elaine provides video conferencing with parents and patients using doxy.me.
Elaine said, “We send parents a link and they join me from their home. They show me what they are working on and I am able to tweak what they are doing and add new activities. I’m also able to see the kids in the equipment they have at home which has been useful.”
