COSPT Telehealth treatment for your musculoskeletal conditions works the same way as an appointment with any other medical provider. You will need a device with a forward-facing camera (smartphones are preferred due to the convenience and ease of device movement during the appointment if found necessary).
COSPT is able to treat patients with the same clinical quality and success rate as in-person treatment because of our conservative approach to the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. The COSPT care model is based on MDT McKenzie Methodology, which is a movement and position based treatment process which very rarely requires any hands-on intervention of your condition.

Setting up your COSPT Telehealth appointment:
powered by JointStrong® and IMC
To start using JointStrong®, you must have an invitation link from COSPT, so begin by calling (850) 656-1837. This special link tells JointStrong® which practice you'll communicate with once you have signed up for and completed your profile in the app. Typically your clinician will send the invitation link via a text message or by email. Here are the steps to accept your clinician's invitation and set up your JointStrong® account.
Accepting the invitation from a text or email:
The JointStrong® APP can be managed from any smart mobile device or computer with a forward-facing camera that is able to receive a text message or email.
Open the email or text message that contains the invitation link. The link will come from the address email@example.com and may be located in your junk mail folder. Open the message, and click the hyperlink provided. You may have to click the link twice.
Your smart device or computer's internet browser will open to the JointStrong® webpage.
If you do not yet have a Google account, you will also be prompted to sign up for one at this time. Click continue and follow the prompts to either sign in or create a new account.
You may also need to enter a verification code depending on your browser and account. Select Next, and enter your profile information to complete your setup within the JointStrong® App. You can begin messaging with your provider once you have completed these steps!
