Are you or a loved one recovering from an injury or surgery, or living with a permanent disability? Home care physical therapy can help restore your mobility and quality of life. But did you know that you can receive physical therapy in the comfort of your own home? At Angelicare Home Health, Inc., we offer home care physical therapy and occupational therapy services that are tailored to your unique needs and goals.
Here are some ways our physical therapists and occupational therapists can assist you at home:
Our licensed physical therapists will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that targets your specific condition, whether it’s a joint replacement, a stroke, or a chronic illness.
Our goal is to help you regain your strength, flexibility, and range of motion, and to manage your pain and symptoms.
We use a variety of techniques and exercises, such as:
- Active and Passive Joint Mobility Training:
Active joint mobility training involves exercises that you perform on your own to improve the movement of your joints. These exercises may include stretching, bending, and rotating your joints to increase your range of motion.
Passive joint mobility training involves exercises that are performed by a physical therapist or another person to move your joints for you. This type of training is especially useful if you have limited mobility or are recovering from an injury or surgery.
Joint mobility training can help reduce stiffness and pain in your joints, making it easier for you to move and perform everyday activities.
- Range of Motion Exercises: to increase your flexibility and prevent muscle contractures
- Aerobic Exercises: to improve your cardiovascular health and endurance
- Muscle Toning and Coordination: to improve your balance, posture, and gait
- Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy: to improve your breathing and oxygenation
- Occupational Therapy: Our licensed occupational therapy will help you develop the skills and strategies you need to perform your daily activities and routines, such as grooming, dressing, cooking, and driving.
We will also assess your home environment and suggest modifications or equipment that can make your home safer and more accessible.
Some of our occupational therapy services include:
- Designing Specialized Home Exercises: to improve your fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and dexterity.
Fine motor skills involve the use of small muscles in the hands and fingers to perform precise movements. Hand-eye coordination refers to the ability to synchronize the movements of the hands and eyes in order to perform a task. Dexterity involves the ability to use your hands skillfully and quickly.
Our therapists can work with you to develop exercises that target your specific needs and abilities.
- Mobility Assistive Devices Training: to help you use walkers, canes, wheelchairs, and other aids safely and effectively
- Pediatric Physical Therapy: to help children with developmental delays or disabilities achieve their full potential
