Physical therapy plays a pivotal role in addressing a wide range of health conditions, and our expert team at Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health is equipped to provide comprehensive care tailored to individual needs. Home health physical therapy can assist patients in managing and improving various health conditions, including but not limited to:
- Orthopedic Injuries: Our physical therapists are adept at helping individuals recover from fractures, joint replacements, and musculoskeletal injuries, enhancing their mobility and reducing pain.
- Neurological Disorders: We specialize in providing therapy for patients with conditions like stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injuries, promoting better functional outcomes.
- Cardiopulmonary Conditions: Our skilled therapists work with individuals suffering from heart and lung conditions, enhancing their cardiovascular fitness and pulmonary function.
- Balance and Falls Prevention: We focus on improving balance, gait, and coordination to minimize the risk of falls among our elderly patients, ensuring their safety at home.
- Chronic Pain Management: Our holistic approach to physical therapy aims to reduce chronic pain and improve the quality of life for individuals dealing with ongoing discomfort.
- Post-Surgery Rehabilitation: We facilitate post-operative recovery, helping patients regain strength and mobility after surgical procedures.
It’s important to understand what “homebound” means. A person is considered homebound when they have a condition (medical, psychiatric, or social) that makes it extremely challenging or medically inadvisable to leave their home. This status is evaluated by a healthcare professional and is a crucial criterion for eligibility for home health services like physical therapy.
