Many patients find physical therapy (PT) an important part of an inter-disciplinary homecare team. It helps them resume their daily activities and improves their overall health. This is for patients who are unable or unwilling to travel to physical therapy. The therapists and their assistants help patients with mobility and lifestyle issues, monitor symptoms, and request interventions to avoid unnecessary visits to the emergency department.
Physical therapy can often help to reduce the severity and duration of disabilities caused by chronic diseases like heart disease and COPD. It also helps patients return to their favorite daily activities such as church and gardening. Patients can also benefit from at-home physical therapy sessions that help them understand how more physical activity and healthier lifestyle choices can result in weight loss, lower blood pressure, and better mental health. A fitness program can also help to reduce future cardiac events and increase mortality.
These conditions may make home-care physical therapy a good choice:
- Conditions that follow a surgery, such as a total hip replacement or total knee replacement,
- After being discharged from an institution, stroke recovery and rehabilitation are possible.
- Management of Parkinson’s disease symptoms
- Multiple sclerosis
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
- After a cardiac event such as a heart attack
- Trauma such as fractures can occur after trauma.
What should I expect from the program in Great Neck?
Everybody has unique needs, depending on their body. There is no one-size fits all approach to health or wellness. One treatment plan might not work for you. Your physical therapist will closely work with you to assess your mobility, balance and range of motion as well as the severity of your pain. When creating your homecare treatment plan, your physical goals and any health risks will be considered. During your initial assessment, you might be asked to do basic movements such as standing, sitting, and walking. You may also be asked to lift, stretch, and perform other motions. Once you have gotten a clear understanding of your needs, your physical therapist will create a treatment plan that will help you relieve pain and reach your goals.
Even if you have chronic pain, an active lifestyle can be more than possible. We can help you improve your strength, health, and physical activity. Get started today on your journey to better health and wellbeing by scheduling an appointment with one of our physical therapists.
What can Home care Physical Therapy do for me?
No matter the reason you seek physical therapy, its purpose remains the same. Maybe you still feel the effects of injury and are suffering from lingering pain. Maybe you’re still recovering from surgery, and are trying to regain your range of motion. You might feel your joints aren’t as strong or flexible as they once were and are seeking relief. No matter what your case, physical therapists can help you relieve your pain and get back to your best level of physical health.
A physical therapist, or movement specialist, is trained to analyze mobility issues in running, walking, jumping, stretching and any other type of activity. A physical therapist will pinpoint the problem areas and develop a treatment plan that targets those areas. Patients can strengthen their muscles, joints, balance, endurance, and feel pain relief through in-office and at-home sessions. All this without having to take the unnecessary risks associated with drugs or surgery.
