Physiotherapy Home Visits – If you are unable to come to us we can come to you
Here at Archview Physiotherapy we provide Chartered Physiotherapy both in one of our clinics and in your home as part of our home visit service. We are available to call out to you or your family member if you are unable to get to the clinic.
There are many reasons why someone may not be able to come and see us in the clinic. Here is a short list of some of those: hip/knee replacements, recent surgery or fractures, severe back/neck/leg pain, decreased mobility, stroke, cerebral palsy, degenerative neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis and motor neuron disease.
Prior to the home visit the physiotherapist would arrange a time that suits you and any family members that you may wish to be present. The physiotherapist would bring all the equipment they feel they might need. The treatment would last approximately 45minutes.
On the day the physiotherapist would arrive at your home and you would show them to the most appropriate area for them to discuss your issue, assess and treat your pain and see what yours needs are, then together we would set targets to achieve your goals. The physiotherapist will also examine you around your home to establish any possible issues i.e. trip hazards and they can advise you on how to adapt your home to ensure your safety.
After the consultation and treatment the physiotherapist will tailor an exercise programme for you which you would be required to do between physiotherapy treatments. This will enable you to get the best results from your treatment.
If you feel a home visit is a service you or one of your family members is in need of please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01-4913228 or email us on [email protected] for more information and to book an appointment for one of our Chartered Physiotherapists to come to your home.
