Physical Therapy

The goal of physical therapy is to improve mobility and strength, restore independence, relieve pain and ensure a safe return to daily activities. It is often prescribed for patients following strokes, orthopedic and reparative surgeries and many other illnesses.

At National Home Health, we offer a variety of Physical therapy services, including,

  • Assessment of your home for safety

  • Gait training with a walker or a cane
  • Instruct on proper way to navigate stairs or curbs.
  • Screen for fall risk
  • Physical Therapy post hip and Knee replacements
  • Fall prevention and education
  • Prosthetic training
  • Transfer training, such as moving from a bed to a chair.

Physical therapy begins with a thorough evaluation to identify any physical impairments and functional limitation.

Our physical therapists will work with you at your home to   formulate a plan and establish a treatment plan and monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed to meet your goals. Any accompanying pain is closely managed to ensure the greatest possible benefit from therapy. In addition, we educate patients on in-home exercises and injury prevention techniques to safely ensure long-term independence even after physical therapy is completed.
