Two reasons rehab access offers home physical therapy

Home Physical Therapy

Home physical therapy isn’t something that every physical therapy practice offers. However, this service can be helpful to patients for a variety of reasons, which is why you’ll find a physical therapy team that offers in-home therapy in Belle Chasse and Gretna, Louisiana. 

The Rehab Access staff has been providing high-quality physical therapy services in Louisiana since 1999. One thing that we’ve come to understand in that time is that our patients’ needs are everything. That’s why we always ask you what your goals are for your therapy and work with you to get the best possible results. We offer many great services from our two locations, but we also offer a superior-quality home physical therapy services as well.

Two of the reasons we provide home physical therapy services in our community

One reason we chose to offer physical therapy to patients in their homes is we care about the well-being of our patients. This caring spirit is what prompts us to do things like help patients get moving again soon after surgery. But, not every patient is able to come to our office to get moving. In some cases, your immune system may be compromised, and this may not make it safe for you to leave home. For others of you, it may be that you feel extreme fear and anxiety in medical settings. These concerns have made our team realize that in cases like these, our patients may make more progress in their rehabilitation process at home where they are comfortable and feel safe. 

A second reason we provide home therapy is that not every patient is able to get to our office. You may not be able to drive because of your medical condition or a physical disability. It could be that you don’t own a car and taking public transportation is too tiring for you. In these situations, your family and friends are probably willing to help you. However, their busy schedules may not always line up with your transportation needs. 

No matter what reason is keeping you out of our offices, we may be able to help you get therapy you need at home. Our therapists may be able to assist you with several conditions right in your house. Some of the conditions we offer home therapy for include: 

  • Stroke recovery
  • Hip or knee replacement surgery
  • Walking issues

Rehab Access offers home therapy for conditions besides these as well. If you’re wondering if your condition is one we offer home therapy for, then contact our team today.
