Okotoks Physical Therapy now offers home-based services. If an injury or illness is restricting you from coming to physiotherapy, we can come to you! One of our physiotherapists can perform a home-based assessment and provide treatment, for individuals that find getting to the clinic challenging.
Home-based physiotherapy can benefit many different conditions, including:
- Recovery from a fracture
- Recovery from surgery
- Soft tissue injury
- Osteoarthritis and joint pain
- Falls and/or fall risk
- Vestibular conditions (vertigo, dizziness, imbalance)
- Neurological conditions (stroke, MS, parkinsons)
Our therapist will discuss what goals the client is aiming to achieve, and then determine the most appropriate treatment approach. Treatment provided in the home may include hands-on therapy, pain relieving modalities, education, taping, and exercise programs. We place a strong emphasis on the development of a home program and on self management strategies.
We schedule 90 minutes for the initial assessment and 60 minutes for follow-up visits. Home based visits are billed privately. Government funded programs must be accessed through the clinic location. Call our office, 403-938-2644, to schedule an appointment.
