There are many reasons why you or a family member may have been referred for physiotherapy, including:

• A recent bone break
• Stroke rehabilitation
• Sport injuries
• Chronic conditions such as cerebral palsy, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, spinal stenosis, cystic fibrosis, heart disease and others
• Recent surgery
• Incontinence
• Recent car accident
• Strains or sprains
• Or back pain

Once you have been seen by a physiotherapist, you will usually need to complete exercises daily on your own. For many people, this can be a daunting task.

Fortunately, better home care agencies can provide personal support workers with expertise in physiotherapy. These home care providers can come to your home and lead you through the prescribed exercises as often as necessary. They can also help you with household tasks, meal planning and preparation, and accompany you to appointments when desired.

Physiotherapy Home Care

 

Physiotherapy can make a huge difference to quality of life. If you have a chronic condition such as arthritis or spastic cerebral palsy, physiotherapy can extend your range of motion and aid with mobility. If you have recently suffered from a stroke or brain injury, physiotherapy can help you to recover from paralysis, ease spasticity and learn how to cope with everyday tasks. If your issues are due to surgery or accident, physiotherapy can help you to regain efficient use of the injured area.

 

Common physiotherapy sessions may involve massage, airway clearance methods or joint manipulation to reduce pain and stiffness. Following treatment, a physiotherapist may recommend that follow-up be done at home, such as the use of hot and cold packs to reduce swelling and speed the healing process, or a series of exercises designed to improve movement and function.

 

When you are recovering from an injury or dealing with a chronic illness, it can be difficult to perform these follow-up tasks by yourself. Accessing skilled home care workers can be a crucial factor in the success of your physiotherapy. These personal support workers can learn about your condition and its treatment from your physiotherapist and guide you through the prescribed exercises or treatments on a daily basis.
