The physical therapists of Rehab Access in Gretna, Louisiana believe everyone should be able to benefit from physical therapy. Patients that are homebound or unable to secure travel may believe that physical therapy is out of their reach, but the compassionate therapists of Rehab Access are willing to help you reap the benefits of home therapy treatment.

Conditions we can treat from the home

Sometimes it just isn’t possible for a patient to come to the rehab facility after a serious injury or operation. You may not be medically cleared or at an elevated risk of infection. It is also possible you may be homebound and do not have the means to make it in. Whatever the reason, Rehab Access of Gretna, LA can help treat people from home with the following conditions:

  • Total hip or knee joint replacement
  • Stroke
  • General weakness
  • Post-hospitalization visits

In addition, the physical therapist is able to make recommendations to help the patient move around in their own home. This may involve identifying tripping or falling hazards, rearranging home layout to be ergonomic and help improve your level of function in the home.

Scheduling home physical therapy with Rehab Access
