Physical therapy is an essential service for anyone who has been physically disabled because of an illness or injury. The job of a physical therapist is to help restore a patient’s mobility while managing their pain at the same time. There is no telling how long it will take for mobility to be restored. It depends on the extent of the injury or illness and the preexisting health conditions of the patient.
Health Care of South Florida offers in-home physical therapy services at affordable prices. We realize how difficult it can be to leave your home and travel someplace when you’re battling an injury or illness. That is what makes our physical therapy services so special because we come to you instead of the other way around. You will receive all the necessary physical therapy treatments and services in the comfort of your own home.
What is Involved?
Our physical therapy services involve a comprehensive series of steps. The first step is the evaluation process. It is where our physical therapist will evaluate the current condition of the patient and study their physical limitations carefully. These could be patients who cannot walk, raise their arms, or move around without assistance.
Once the physical therapist learns what the patient can and cannot do, we will create a physical therapeutic exercise regimen for the patient. The exercises will be customized to fit the specific physical limitations of the patient. They will be designed to help the patient increase their mobility and strengthen their muscles in areas of their body that have been stagnant for too long.
The physical therapist will have the patient work with light hand weights and home exercise equipment. If the patient has trouble lifting or pushing weight around, the physical therapist will be there to assist them. The idea is for the patient to exercise their muscles, joints, and bones to some extent. That is how they become stronger and healthier.
We Accept Everyone
We accept patients of all different ages and health conditions, including patients with prosthetic limbs. Our main objective is to help get patients strong enough to move around more and to do more things for themselves. Extra care and sensitivity are given to each patient to ensure their condition improves quickly.
As the patient’s functional mobility gets better, they will hopefully get to a point where they will no longer need a physical therapist. In most cases, physical therapy is a temporary rehabilitation service to help a patient recover from an illness or injury. It can also be requested as a form of sports therapy if the patient was injured while playing sports.
Benefits of Physical Therapy
Physical therapy can save your life and return it back to normal again. If you work with the physical therapist and never give up on your exercise regimen, then you should at least make a partial recovery. All physical injuries and illnesses are different, so there is no way to know how long it will take to recover. But your chances of making a full recovery are far greater when you work with a physical therapist regularly.
