Editor-in-Chief Alan Jette interviews Andrew Post about his study on the efficacy of physical therapy delivered via telehealth in people with chronic Achilles tendinopathy.
The study — which found that the telehealth-only group demonstrated no worse pain outcomes than those who received the same intervention through in-person and hybrid models — suggests how telehealth can help clinicians prioritize patient preferences and ultimately increase accessibility to care. Post is author of the article “Efficacy of Telehealth for Movement-Evoked Pain in People with Chronic Achilles Tendinopathy: A Noninferiority Analysis.”
