Why choose a physiotherapist home visit?

Clients have many reasons for choosing a physiotherapist to come to them for an in-home visit, rather than travelling to a clinic. Home visits usually provide the same services as one would receive by traveling to an external clinic.

Physiotherapy home visits cut down on waiting and travelling times for clients, so a home visit is usually more convenient for a client that is time poor. It also provides an opportunity for the physiotherapist to better understand the home environment of the client which, in turn, helps the overall therapy process.

Other patients who may choose to have a physiotherapist come to their home include those who are advanced in age, or have mobility issues. Increasingly these patients are maintaining their independence by being able to stay in their homes longer by utilising mobile physiotherapy home care.

What ever the reason may be, Home Visit Network will make the process of finding a local independent physiotherapist that will come to your home quick and easy for a home visit.

What does a home visit from a physiotherapist entail?

A physiotherapist is a medical practitioner who help patients recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury, usually by means of massage and exercise.

In order to properly address the specific issue and to evaluate a proper recover and management plan, the physiotherapist will usually ask a series of questions about the client’s medical background, how the injury occurred, what their daily activities/movements involve etc. Once this has been run through, the physiotherapist will then examine the patient physically via observation and examination of the affected joints/muscles. Finally, the physiotherapist may then demonstrate any exercises or discuss any other course of treatment that the client could participate in, in order to facilitate pain relief and recovery.

What Physiotherapy treatments are usually covered?

Most home visit physiotherapists will usually cover treatments such as pain management, falls prevention, general rehabilitation and gentle reconditioning. They will help the patient improve their range of motion and their strength, and may provide advice and education about their health condition.

Some physiotherapists may also discuss exercises which can aid in weight loss, which in turn can improve the underlying condition and speed up the recovery process.

They may also assess the mobility of the client and prescribe the use of mobility aids.

It is important that you confirm with your physiotherapist which treatments they provide before any home visit.
