Here’s what you need to know about Motus PT’s Telehealth Services:


  • Telehealth is a live, one-on-one video appointment.
  • You meet on screen with the same highly-trained physical therapist you would have seen in the clinic, but from the comfort of your home or office.
  • All you need is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a microphone and camera, and a good internet connection.


  • When you book a telehealth physical therapy or wellness appointment with Motus PT, Darlene sends you an online link through email or text message.
  • At your scheduled appointment time, you simply click on the link to be connected with Darlene via video and audio. You will be able to see each other and talk as easily as if you were sitting right in the same room. It truly is that simple.
  • Darlene utilizes HIPPA-compliant telehealth software to keep your personal data and therapy session safe and secure.
  • An easy-to-use patient portal allows you to message Darlene between appointments.


  • Convenient, high quality care in the comfort of your home or office.
  • Reduced stress and physical demands on caregivers concerned about or struggling to transport loved ones to/from health appointments.
  • More time efficient with no time lost for travel to/from appointments, traffic delays, or long appointment wait times.
  • Easily accessible to people in outlying or rural areas.
  • Improved continuity of care and treatment carryover as exercises and treatments are completed correctly in the home environment right from the start.
  • Flexible home or office-based appointments ensure no more missed work or school time for therapy appointments.
  • Increased privacy and peace of mind that your health concerns and health information remain confidential and aren’t overheard in a busy clinic setting.
  • Potentially faster recovery time due to self-management of symptoms.


People of all ages and with a variety of symptoms and medical conditions may be candidates for tele-rehabilitation.

A few examples of conditions Darlene effectively treats virtually include:

  • Acute injury or chronic pain management
  • Postoperative care
  • Pelvic pain & disorders 
  • Pregnancy and postpartum wellness
  • Breathing disorders
  • Wellness, fitness, and sports performance


First, Darlene will talk with you and ask questions about:

  • Your current symptoms
  • Activities that are difficult for you
  • Specific goals you have for what you would like to accomplish with

Then, Darlene will ask you to move around and to complete different activities so she can watch your movements. This helps her thoroughly assess:

  • Range of motion
  • Strength
  • Coordination
  • Balance
  • Pain limitations

Finally, Darlene will create a personalized treatment plan to help you manage your pain and achieve your goals.


Darlene verifies your insurance benefits prior to your visit and provides you with a Good Faith Estimate, a statement explaining how much your care will cost.

Darlene helps you navigate your insurance coverage and provides several affordable options for telehealth Physical Therapy and wellness. Here’s some important information to know:

  • Payment is based on each individual insurance policy.
  • Darlene is an enrolled Medicare provider and an out-of-network provider for all PPOs.
  • Darlene verifies your insurance benefits prior to your visit and provides you with a Good Faith Estimate, a statement explaining how much your care will cost.
  • There will never be an additional charge beyond your Good Faith Estimate.
  • Darlene offers several different treatment sessions (variable 30-60 minutes) with different costs respectively. She also offers wellness session packages with discounts for pay-in-full.
  • California is a direct access state, which means in most cases a physician referral is not needed for insurance to cover your therapy. Darlene provides courtesy billing for private insurance. 
  • Darlene accepts Medicare with a doctor’s prescription or referral. Some PPOs also require a physician’s prescription.
  • Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, most PPOs as well as Medicare have approved tele-rehabilitation for their members.


  • Telehealth sessions will all be on Zoom. You will receive a link to Darlene’s personal Zoom meeting room. Prior to the first session, make sure you have downloaded Zoom on your laptop, tablet or phone. To ensure a good connection and to troubleshoot any technical issues, about five minutes before your scheduled appointment time, click the link Darlene sent you to get logged into Zoom. If you see a “waiting for host to start meeting” message, you know you are in the right place! 
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing and be prepared to show Darlene the area where you are having pain or problems.
  • Gather any equipment — such as stretch bands, yoga mat, hand weights, etc. – so they are within easy reach.
  • Be in a space that allows you to move around freely and to possibly even get on the floor so Darlene can complete the most thorough evaluation possible and develop a highly effective treatment plan.
  • Close all other streaming applications on your device and, if you can, be in the room where your internet connection is the strongest. This will ensure the best video and audio quality possible.

All telehealth physical therapy and wellness is not the same.

What does telehealth physical therapy look like?

“I began receiving in-person treatment from Darlene for lower back/sciatica issues and shoulder tendinitis. During this time, I was also treated for a tendon tear in my left hip. Then my treatment had to change to telehealth due to the pandemic where I continued to receive outstanding treatment for my conditions. I remained with telehealth even after vaccinations due to the convenience of home comfort while still getting challenging exercises with the same attentive guidance.”



“I suffered a severe ankle sprain along with a questionable hairline fracture and was struggling to wean myself off of the boot nearly three months later. Darlene was highly recommended to me, but her clinic was simply too far away in LA driving terms. I decided to give telehealth a try even though I was skeptical. Within a month, I was back taking the long walks that I loved to do on the beach with minimal to no pain. Achieving this goal helped me not only physically but mentally!



I was receiving in-person physical therapy for my new hip when the pandemic hit. I was hesitant to convert to Telehealth. After a couple of months of trying to rehab myself, I noticed I was actually having a harder time moving. That’s when I reached back out to Darlene and started my treatments online. I realized quickly how much I enjoyed our sessions together and how practical they were in helping me achieve my movement goals. I honestly can say at this point I don’t ever feel the need to go back to in-person treatments!
