What to expect from an in-home physical therapy appointment
Choosing an in-home physical therapy appointment has many advantages, especially during this season. Whether you are recovering from an injury that makes leaving the house difficult or you have a compromised immune system that makes you more susceptible to illnesses, in-home physical therapy services allow you to receive the treatment you need from the safety of your own home.
If you are concerned about going into a physical therapy clinic during this time, in-home physical therapy sessions are a great option to make sure you don’t lose the progress you’ve gained toward healing.
While there are a few things that may be different about an in-home appointment compared to an in-clinic one, most things will remain the same. Our physical therapists will bring the necessary equipment for your appointment.
Considerations for in-home physical therapy sessions
To ensure that you are getting the most out of your in-home physical therapy appointment, consider these following tips prior to your session:
- Clear a space in a common area where you and your physical therapist can work through stretches and exercises safely.
- Wear appropriate, comfortable clothes that you can move and stretch in.
- Have a glass of water available, so you don’t have to break momentum to go to the kitchen.
- Wear comfortable, athletic shoes to maintain the proper foot support during your appointment.
Your physical therapist will bring the equipment needed for your appointment, so don’t worry about buying anything. All you need to do is have a space to work in and comfortable clothes to stretch in. Your physical therapist will do the rest.
