Physical Therapy Services
Rather than being transferred to an assisted living facility or hospital, the goal of Your Healing Touch is to keep your loved one safe, bringing the care that they need directly to them. By allowing your loved one to receive PT care at home, we strive to improve their quality of life, reducing the stress associated with moving that often creates more health problems.
Your Healing Touch works closely with our clients’ medical team and family to provide patient-specific, at-home physical therapy care for the elderly.
There are several reasons for needing physical therapy for an elderly loved one:
- Reducing Risk: Recovering from a fall is one of the most common reasons for needing physical therapy. Regular PT exercises improve stability, helping to reduce the risk of falls and other injuries.
- Decreasing Pain: Chronic conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis can cause significant pain. Physical therapy can lessen pain and prevent future discomfort.
- Reducing Need for Medication: If physical therapy is successful in reducing pain, it can reduce the need for prescription medication that is given to help manage that pain.
- Maintaining Independence: With improved strength and flexibility, seniors may be able to enjoy greater independence.
Whether they have a chronic illness or are recovering from a recent injury, it is our team’s priority to ensure your loved one is safe and comfortable during the healing process. We perform a variety of routine exercises, including stretches to reduce joint pain and increase flexibility, weightlifting to build strength, specialized wound care, and more. Through regular exercises and health evaluations, our physical therapists will work closely with your loved one to ensure that their needs are met.
Your Healing Touch is committed to providing exceptional at-home health care for your elderly loved ones. Whatever needs you may have, you can be sure that we will provide compassionate care with the highest level of integrity. It is always our priority to help your loved one live a quality life in the comfort of their own home.
