In-home physical therapy allows a therapist to assist you in gaining strength to take care of your daily living activities and to improve your overall health. Some patients may not be able to leave the house for physical therapy so this option is safer and more convenient. The therapist will teach the patients exercises to increase physical activity which can help with weight loss, lower blood pressure, and improve their mental health. You may need physical therapy after a hip or knee replacement, a stroke, multiple sclerosis, a heart attack, a traumatic bone fracture, and more.
Benefits Of Receiving Physical Therapy At Home
Receiving physical therapy allows injured or ill patients to improve their movement and manage pain all from the comfort of their homes. It is very convenient since the patient may not be able to drive, they will not have to be an inconvenience to others in order to get to and from physical therapy appointments. It also helps them save their energy to focus on their daily activities or exercises instead of wasting it on getting in and out of the car or going up and down the stairs to get to their appointments. Finally, when a therapist is teaching you different exercises and techniques while in your home it is more practical and realistic, which may increase the chance of the patient improving faster.
