If your loved one has had an injury or illness requiring hospitalization, their doctor will likely recommend physical therapy to speed their recovery. A well-designed physical therapy plan boosts mobility and strengthens muscles, two important ingredients in any recovery program. Our trained physical therapists can provide this treatment right in the comfort of home. As your loved one grows in strength and flexibility, daily tasks will become easier, resulting in a more active and independent lifestyle.
Physical therapy is recommended in a wide variety of situations, including:
- Injuries sustained in a fall or other accident
- Regaining strength after a hospital stay
- Chronic pain
- Recovery from surgery
- Trouble with mobility – such as rising from a chair or walking
- Balance and coordination issues
- Parkinson's disease
- Heart disease
- Other conditions impairing physical function
Physical therapy can even play a role in preventing some of these conditions. For example, a trained physical therapist can teach seniors of all abilities how to exercise safely. An exercise plan may include anything from exercises designed to be done in bed to a weight-lifting routine and daily walks. Seniors that get regular exercise are both less likely to fall and less likely to suffer from severe arthritis symptoms. So you needn't wait for a problem or issue to arise for your loved one to benefit from our physical therapy services!
