Physical Therapy

Therapies Annex Healthcare 2The goal of home physical therapy is to help patients maintain or restore mobility and function, prevent long-term disability, and alleviate pain in individuals suffering from heart, lung, joint, and neurological problems. After carefully reviewing a patient’s medical history, the physical therapist will conduct a series of tests to identify any deficits in the patient’s balance, coordination, range of motion, and strength. The therapist develops an individualized treatment plan designed to help the patient achieve as much physical function and independence as possible. Some of the issues addressed through physical therapy include:

  • Gait dysfunction
  • Strength deficits
  • Lack of muscle tone or muscular imbalance
  • Balance and vestibular conditions
  • Chronic and acute pain

  • Sensory processing deficits
