PT for Heroes, a national outreach program initiative by Hands-On Diagnostics, has a mission to help ease the stress and pain of doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals on the front lines of COVID-19 with vital, free telehealth physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology services.
When I hear from my colleague physicians and physical therapists about the endless hours and hard work they put on the front lines fighting COVID-19, I feel that we have an obligation to stand on their side and help them in any possible way,” says Dr Dimitrios Kostopoulos, who spearheaded this movement together with Dr Kostas Rizopoulos and their team at Hands-On Diagnostics, an organization that helps physical therapists in private practice establish a variety of diagnostic testing in their facilities.
PT for Heroes is comprised of hundreds of volunteer private practice owners and physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists practicing across the United States, all of whom have signed up to offer their services via telehealth to doctors, nurses and other health professionals in their state.
All doctors, nurses, and other health professionals are invited to sign up for free telehealth at PTforHeroes.com. Once registered, they are immediately sent to a page with participating therapists in their state where they can click to be taken to each practice and book their free telehealth appointment.
These services are free, with no co-payment, as they are donated by each participating provider and private practice.
