Physiotherapy is an important part of your health and recovery. Whether you want to work on your fitness, recover from an injury, improve your overall well-being, or prevent future injuries, physiotherapy can help you reduce pain, reduce the need for over the counter (OTC) or prescription pain medications, and possibly avoid surgery in some cases.
At True Life Wellness and Physiotherapy, our qualified team of physiotherapists can bring our services to your door. Regardless of whether you need treatment for a sports injury, motor vehicle accident, or pain management, we are here for you.
We also offer virtual physiotherapy consultations to patients that want an initial visit with a physiotherapist in the comfort of their home or office. Call us today to book your appointment!
In-home physiotherapy treatment is tailored for patients that have difficulty accessing physiotherapy in a clinic setting. These patients might have mobility issues, are recovering from a recent surgery or injury, or chronic pain. They might also be elderly patients or individuals that don’t have a way of commuting to the physiotherapy clinic.
With in-home physiotherapy you receive the same quality of care and professionalism you expect from a visit to the clinic. While at-home physiotherapy visits are typically reserved for patients exhibiting a significant amount of difficulty coming into a clinic, some patients might also choose in-home physiotherapy simply because it’s more convenient, especially during our present pandemic.
Home physiotherapy visits can also bridge the gap between hospital and in-clinic care.
How Does In-Home Physiotherapy Work?
In-home physiotherapy offers the same level of treatment and exercises as one can expect when attending a physiotherapy clinic. The only difference is that your physiotherapist comes to your home or office instead of having you visit their clinic. It offers patients another way to connect with a physiotherapist and receive the treatment they need to improve their health and well-being.
To schedule an in-home physiotherapy appointment, you can either contact the physiotherapy clinic directly or book your appointment on-line in most cases.
When it’s time for your in-home physiotherapy appointment, your physiotherapist will arrive at your door with the equipment they need to provide you with care. They will help you through various exercises that can help you recover from your injury, reduce pain, and restore mobility in your body. Your physiotherapist might also recommend other treatments as a part of your plan, such as massage therapy.
Why Should I Consider Physiotherapy At Home?
You might have a certain condition, mobility issues, an injury, or are actively recovering from surgery. In these cases, it might be difficult for you to travel and access physiotherapy treatment from a clinic. In these cases, at-home physiotherapy provides you the treatment you need to improve your health and well-being without having to leave the comfort of your home.
Here are some other benefits of in-home physiotherapy:
Highly Personalized Care
When your physiotherapist visits your home, they can provide recommendations on how you can incorporate exercises into your daily routine using the equipment you already have. It gives you more opportunities to discuss your treatment plan and improve your recovery. .
Time and Cost Savings
At-home physiotherapy saves you time and money because you don’t have to travel to the physiotherapist’s clinic or spend money on gas or public transportation. You also eliminate wait time and don’t have to worry about traffic or appointment delays.
What Conditions Can I Receive Treatment For At Home?
You can receive treatment for a variety of conditions such as:
- Motor vehicle injuries
- Chronic neck and back pain
- Joint, bone, and muscle issues
- Loss of mobility resulting from a stroke
- Sports injuries
