Let's say you've recently had knee surgery. Everything went well, but it's going to take weeks for you to regain your strength and fully bend and extend the joint again. Especially in the early stages of your recovery, you'll probably need to see a physical therapist regularly. But what if you could receive the same treatments at home instead of at a medical facility across town? That's exactly what we offer with our home health services in the Greenville area.
Interim HealthCare of the Upstate provides home health services including physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy in Greenville, Pickens, Anderson, and Spartanburg. Through these services, we want to make it easier for our clients to recover from their injuries or surgeries, or manage their ongoing health issues.
Why is Physical Therapy So Important?
Physical therapy can play a major part in bouncing back after an operation or injury. It can also help with managing pain and maintaining your mobility if you're dealing with a chronic condition. Physical therapists are the ones who will guide you through different exercises and stretches so you can progressively recover your abilities. The process can be slow, and it's easy to get impatient and try to push yourself too far too fast, so your physical therapist will also help you pace yourself to avoid further injury.
There are many issues a physical therapist can assist you with, including:
- Recovering range of motion after knee replacement surgery
- Regaining strength after a heart attack
- Restoring abilities and managing pain after a fall
- Become more comfortable walking and maintaining balance
By having a physical therapist come to you at home, you can receive individual attention and care in a setting that is convenient and comforting. You can also include your loved ones more fully in your rehabilitation process since they'll be able to speak with your physical therapist and can even observe the exercises and stretches you need to do. From there, your family members can become your cheerleaders, reminding and encouraging you to take a step closer to full recovery every day.
