A Therapist WhereYou Need Them
Physical Therapy is an Essential Home Health Role
Physical therapists (PT) are essential to the recovery of a variety of patients and help to prevent weakness and muscle atrophy that can hinder healing. PT is an integral part of your care plan and treatments may include strength training exercises, stretching, walking, and fitting or use of mobility devices. PT may be aggressive if you are recovering from a recent orthopedic surgery to improve outcomes and reduce complications and may include the use of thera-bands, continuous passive motion (CPM) machines, exercises, and mobility devices including cane or walker. The best part is, you can get the PT you need at home, either after leaving a skilled nursing facility, or in lieu of an inpatient rehab stay.
Physical therapists can also perform safety assessments and offer suggestions for managing your chronic condition. Whether you need PT several times a day or just a few times a week, your PT team will work diligently to create a plan that helps you meet your goals and improve your overall health.
Occupational Therapy Optimizes Outcomes
Occupational therapy (OT) works in conjunction with physical therapy to help you learn to apply your strength to care for yourself. OT focuses on performing daily tasks and incorporates the use of adaptive equipment if needed, all for the purpose of helping you regain independence. Whether you suffer from a chronic condition such as MS or Myasthenia Gravis, you’re recovering from a stroke, or you are experiencing general weakness, OT can be the critical element to healing.
Speech Therapy Paramount to Thriving
Speech therapy is important for both speech disorders as well as swallowing difficulties. For those with expressive aphasia or dysarthria caused by brain injury, stroke, ALS, MS, Myasthenia Gravis, or Parkinson’s disease. Your in-home speech therapist can help with mouth and jaw exercises, speech and memory exercises, and appropriate modifications to help with your swallowing issues.
If you require food or liquid modified textured requirements, your speech therapist can help you and your family with how to make the right consistency yourself.
