What Is Home Health Physical Therapy?
Staying within the comfort of your own home while still receiving the care that you need can be a boon for some individuals. Whether there are challenges with transportation to a remote therapy location or whether physical activity is difficult, it’s good to know that there are home health physical therapy options available to meet your needs from the professionals at Santé. There is a wide range of benefits to physical therapy, and having the flexibility provided by receiving this care within your own home means that it is more available for those who need it most.
What is Home Health Physical Therapy?
In-home physical therapy occurs when a therapist visits your home to provide PT services to aid in healing or rehabilitation. Patients who find home health physical therapy beneficial include those who are bedridden with acute or severe risks to their health, individuals with limited mobility or those who simply desire to receive these beneficial services within their home instead of traveling to a separate location.
Benefits of Receiving Physical Therapy at Home
Depending on the type of physical therapy that you are receiving, it can be extremely strenuous and stressful. Completing your activities within your personal environment may allow you to relax and reap the greatest benefits from your work with a physical therapist. Post-surgical conditions such as stroke, hip or knee replacement, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease are only a few of the conditions that often derive benefits from ongoing support from a licensed and trusted physical therapist who is able to provide services within the home. Physical therapy has been shown to improve mobility, enhance strength and improve overall endurance in individuals.
