What is In-Home Therapy?
Sometimes called mobile PT or concierge PT, in-home physical therapy is not the same as home-health.
Home-health physical therapy is when a physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, or nurse comes to your home to provide you care because you are physically unable to get out of your home. Typically these services are covered by Medicare insurance and you have to meet certain requirements in order to receive this care.
In-home physical therapy is outpatient physical therapy brought to you for convenience and to provide one-on-one care to assist you in healing, progressing, recovering, training, or rehabbing. Physical therapists are movement specialists and doctors in their field and use their education to provide you with education and treatment for your pain or limitations. When we come to your home, we are able to utilize these skills with the simplest of tools to help you gain range of motion, strength, flexibility, or joint mobility.
What Happens During In-Home Therapy?
Typically your in-home PT session will include manual techniques completed by your physical therapist to help you gain mobility, increase range of motion, or enhance your posture, exercises or stretches to assist in re-training the body, practicing a new movement pattern or posture, and/or strengthening muscles to complete an activity better or with less pain. Ongoing assessments will be completed to make sure you are progressing towards your goals and the treatment is going in the right direction to give you relief of pain.
