Home Physical Therapy in Manhattan
Home physical therapy is a service we offer to patients who are not able to make it to the clinic. This service is generally available to:
As with all patients, the first visit will consist of a subjective assessment, physical exam and diagnosis. This will possibly be followed by the start of your treatment.
Booking a Session
First we recommend that you find out if you are eligible for government-funded physical therapy. Your doctor or nurse practitioner should be able to assist you.
If you are already enrolled at Sport Physiotherapy, your therapist can also help out! At Sport Physiotherapy we are happy to help the people of Manhattan get access to physical therapy in whichever way suits them best.
Your First Session
To prepare for your first session so that you are comfortable and ready to get to work when your therapist arrives, we recommend you do the following:
What Will Be Involved?
Your therapist will be able to address many problems during your sessions including:
Techniques that may be applied as part of your therapy can include, but are not limited to:
Massage is suitable for most patients and is tailored to each individual. Along with exercise and movement to help with flexibility and range of motion, these practices are the most common in physical therapy.
In-home physical therapy is available as a one-time consult, ongoing or as a set number of treatments. Depending on your condition, you may also decide as you go.
If you are recovering from an accident or other reason for hospitalization, your therapist will encourage you to reach a point in your occupational rehabilitation where you can begin to make visits to the Sport Physiotherapy clinic.
While the advantages of in-home therapy are many, there are disadvantages as well in the form of limitations to the type of therapy you could be receiving. Rehabilitation practices such as electrotherapy, hydrotherapy and acupuncture are only available in controlled environments and if one of these is ideal for your condition, it would be beneficial for you to work towards visiting the clinic.
No matter what your ailment is, our therapists are here to help you move forward at a pace that is best for you.
