Why see a Home Visit Physio?
Support at home after a hospital stay or an operation is a crucial part of your recovery. Often patients feel frustrated at not being able to do activities post an operation that they could do beforehand. Understandably, they want a support framework to guide them as they lack the confidence to know how much they can do and what they can do.
It can be just as frustrating for family members as they want to ensure you are looked after correctly, to know that everything that can is being done and that the support is in place to ensure as quick a return as possible.
The good news is that home visit Physios look after people in this exact position every day, and usually there are certain things that can be put in place quickly and with a big impact.
We see a lot of patients every week who have had recent operations or long hospital stay.Home visit Physio can really make a difference in your health without taking a toll on your body.
Here are three reasons you should consider it:
1. Get set up correctly
You will understandably not be able to do some activities that you could do beforehand, due to pain or a lack of strength. What’s important is that we get you doing as much as you can and doing the key activities. The correct technique can really help here; for instance, it’s important that we show you how to get up from a chair properly and set up your rollator if you have one.
2. Regular Exercise Programme
To recover from your operation or hospital stay, you will need to have a regular exercise programme. Having a professional design this will ensure you know how much you can do and what you can do. By far the biggest benefit of having someone with you doing these exercises is that you do them and do them well so your recovery really gains momentum.
3. Support and Peace of mind
Having the correct support will ensure you have the back up to recover as quickly as possible. This will help to alleviate frustration for you and your family and ensure that your relatives know that your recovery is in good hands.
