Physical Therapist Andrea Leifer was recently evaluated and treated LIVE inside the Telehealth Facebook Providers Group.
This is the uncut recording that shows how the right knowledge can provide massive improvements, even in chronic "tough to treat" cases, no hands required.
From Andrea directly:

For the past ten years, I have not known a day without aching, numbness and burning in my right arm, face and leg.
I thought this was the start of another decade feeling like half of myself was either missing or screaming for attention.
Office exams, imaging, repeated nerve conduction studies and brain scans left me exhausted or in tears when again I was told “nothing is wrong.”
𝘼𝙩 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙨, 𝙄 𝙬𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙬𝙖𝙨...
I’ve sought out more physical therapists than I can recall, only to leave them behind when I had worse pain after their “advanced” hands-on techniques or I didn’t see the changes I was hoping for. I’ve started and stopped countless home exercise programs not because I’m non-compliant but because they were focused on helping me warm up for the gym or for orchestra or other things I loved instead of how to face another day in pain when my bed was my only solace.
I was ashamed that as a physical therapist, I could not see my own way out of it. I didn’t think anyone else could help me find a way either. So I suffered silently. For years.
It took me stepping outside of what I knew as physical therapy and into another world, a digital world, to radically change my relationship with my pain. 🤯🤯🤯
I was skeptical and was not ready for what came next. With my cell phone propped on my coffee table and a friendly and caring voice on the other end, in under an hour, a live video assessment and treatment left me feeling everything and nothing again, like I was myself from ten years ago. 🤸🏻♀️
The areas of numbness and cold became warm. The burning and aching were nowhere to be found. And trust me I looked. 🕵🏻♀️
I did my homework as prescribed without hesitation, doubt or uncertainty that night. 🧘🏻♀️
I was up most of that night, trying to figure out who I am if I am not in pain. 🤔

🔹If you’ve read this far, and didn’t know any of this about me, it’s okay. How could you know? I went out of my way to make sure you’d never find out. I didn’t want you to think less of me as a physical therapist, or ask me how I was doing because I just didn’t know how to respond anymore.
🔸If you’ve read this far and want to help change the face of physical therapy through Telehealth but aren’t sure what that means or even how to do it, that’s okay.

Be ready to learn and be ready to help even one more person feel like themselves again before another ten years goes by.
