Burton upon Trent Physiotherapy
ThreeSpires Physiotherapy provides a comprehensive and outstanding home visit physiotherapy service in Burton upon Trent and surrounding areas. Wherever you live in or near Burton we will be able to assist with a large range of treatment options.
Why home visit physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy at home can provide a range of benefits that the traditional physiotherapy model of delivery (located in a physical clinic) can not deliver and is now becoming accepted as simply the best way of delivering physiotherapy. The patients of our home visit service don't need to find time in their schedules to go to a practice - rather one of our physiotherapists goes out to them! For those patients working long days this time saving and increased convenience can be of enormous benefit.
Clearly our home visit physiotherapy service offers many more benefits than simply that of time savings; physiotherapy at home allows a comprehensive assessment of how your home and lifestyle could be impacting upon you and your recovery. It also enables our physiotherapists to assess better the treatment options and exercises that will work best for you. For those with a neurological pathology (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis) this can be a great advantage. It also aids patients who are recovering from the effects of a stroke and is especially helpful for patients who have been ill and have recently left hospital.
Some of the patients that our physiotherapists see have difficulty walking and mobilising making visiting a clinic extremely tiring if not impossible. In these cases our home visit physiotherapy service is the ideal option as it eliminates the problems of getting to a clinic. Patients can have multiple causes for their difficulty in mobilising: sometimes they will have undergone a surgical procedure (e.g. a knee replacement) or they may have been admitted to hospital and are currently feeling weaker and lacking in confidence. Physiotherapy in the home environment delivers a number of benefits for these patients by removing the necessity of traveling to a clinic and also allows rehabilitation to happen earlier.
What will it involve?
After making an appointment, a physiotherapist will come to your home at the day and time of your choosing. They will come equipped with a plinth (massage/assessment table) and a bag with any other equipment they need.
A full verbal history will be taken to get a good picture of your situation followed by a physical examination. The physiotherapist will then explain what the problem is and how this can be best treated. Treatment will then take place followed by an explanation of self-management strategies and exercises to do. Your chartered physiotherapist will book any follow up treatments with you and email (or post if you prefer) a rehabilitation and exercise plan to you.
