Anyone can end up suffering from a physical disability due to an injury or illness. It happens to both younger and older people. After the patient has been treated at the hospital for their emergency care, they will require long-term physical therapy care to help restore their mobility and flexibility. The duration and success of the treatment depends on the severity of their health condition.

We are a home health care agency in Broward County, which means our physical therapists will come to your home to provide our services. Not only is this convenient for the patient, but it keeps our operational costs low as well.

The Process of Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is an essential and sophisticated in-home care service. There are several steps involved in the process. Each step is important to ensure the patient gets the best physical therapy treatment possible. Let’s go over those steps below.
The physical therapist begins by evaluating the current physical condition of the patient. The evaluation will focus on discovering all the physical limitations and abilities of the patient. For instance, is the patient able to walk? Raise their arms? Lift small objects? These are the kinds of things that will be evaluated.
Personalized Exercise Regimen
The physical therapist uses the information discovered from the evaluation to create a personalized exercise regimen for the patient. These are a series of low-intensity exercises meant to accommodate the patient’s physical limitations, while allowing them to strengthen their muscles and boost their mobility and flexibility.
The physical therapist acts as a caregiver and physical trainer at the same time. The patient may work with light hand weights, exercise bands, or perform various stretching exercises. It all depends on what they need to build their body functionality back up again.
Physical therapy is an ongoing in-home care service. It might only require a few weeks for some people but a few months for others. All of our physical therapy services will be delivered right to your home. You can request them anytime you need them. We can set up a physical therapy schedule that is convenient for you.
