In Home Physiotherapy

In-home physiotherapy……WE COME TO YOU!!!

Busy roads, bad weather, not wanting to ask family or friends for a drive…these are all reasons we get asked to provide in-home physiotherapy. Most people need physiotherapy at some point in their lives, and in-home physiotherapy is a great option for many individuals! In-home physiotherapy is when a physiotherapist comes to you in the comfort of your own home. This alternative has been shown to be just as effective as in-clinic physiotherapy and comes with some other advantages.

What to Expect From In-Home Physiotherapy? 

Firstly, home care physiotherapy provides treatment in a familiar and comfortable environment- in your own home! With usual in-clinic physiotherapy, the client must take their exercises and strategies they have learned in clinic and figure out how to apply them into their own home. But with in-home physiotherapy, these ideas and exercises will be more direct and relatable since they are being taught, demonstrated and practiced with the physiotherapist in your home. For example, if your physiotherapist gave you some strategies for how to get in the bathtub, instead of trying it out at home by yourself for the first time, your physiotherapist will walk you through it with more guidance. They may even be able to give you more specific suggestions if they are able to see for themselves what your specific home layout looks like.

Who Can Benefit from In-Home Physiotherapy? 

In addition, home care physiotherapy can be a great alternative for those with mobility issues or lack of transportation and who cannot easily come in to the clinic. Instead of worrying about transportation and getting out to see the physiotherapist (especially in cold and icy weather), we can conveniently come to you instead. Let’s remove the barriers of attending your appointment!

Our 1:1 session with a physiotherapist can help you keep up with your exercises and stay active. We know how hard that can be in the winter when outdoor activities are limited! Whatever the reason may be for in-home physiotherapy, our therapists are ready to come see you in your home and help you to achieve your goals!
