With home care physiotherapy and medical services, the physiotherapist will use available resources that will facilitate rehabilitation within your home setting and surrounding environment as applicable. Light equipment like bands, free weights, and ankle weights can be used to help attain your physical therapy exercise goals. Expensive and heavy exercise machinery is not often central to a rehab program. Gravity and regular routines with small equipment plus innovative solutions that work in your daily life at home are very effective.
Other components of physiotherapy, such as compression therapy and integrated lymphatic drainage, can also be done at home. In many cases, a family member or approved assistant can be taught the treatment regimen of management and/or home exercises to assist the client.
