We understand that some people may not be able to travel the distance to clinics yet they still require treatment and assistance from a physiotherapist.
People avail of this home physiotherapy service for a number of reasons; often people are too injured, too sick or in too much pain to leave the house whereas in other cases people simply prefer to receive physio treatment at home where they are most comfortable.
Our Physiotherapists regularly provide our home visit service to patients with Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinsons Disease. Home physiotherapy is also quite appropriate for Post-Surgical patients like hip or knee replacements as well as those with falls and balance problems. Furthermore palliative care for positioning can be learned at home visits and of course all of the injuries and conditions that we regularly treat in the clinic can be treated in the home.Physiotherapy at home allows the rest of the family to be involved in the treatment and gain a better understanding of the condition, as well as giving them an opportunity to ask the physio any questions and also learn how they can help out.
Home-based physiotherapy improves overall physical wellbeing, enhances social functioning, ensures routine monitoring of isolated clients, and reduces the rate of re-hospitalization and future health care service utilization. rehabilitation programs, as an accessible alternative to home-based physiotherapy services in communities, also produce positive health outcomes.
