Rehabilitation following illness or hospital admission
Specialist rehabilitation when your home from hospital, without delay.
Deconditioning syndrome frequently happens during hospital admissions due to prolonged bed rest and inactivity.
One week of bedrest can equate to a 10% loss in muscle mass and for an older person who is at threshold strength for climbing the stairs at home, getting out of bed or even standing up from the toilet, a 10% loss of strength may make the difference between dependence and independence.
At 4ward Physiotherapy we offer comprehensive assessment and treatment plans in your home setting.
What to expect from a Physiotherapy Assessment
The physiotherapist will come to your home at a time that is convenient to you.
We will start by asking you about your experience of your condition and a little about your medical history. It is important for us to know what you are hoping to get out of having physiotherapy so that we are sure we are targeting our treatment specifically for you.
We will then look at your strength and the movement in your joints. We would also like to look at how you move and test your balance.
After your assessment, we will trial some different treatment approaches to see what will fit your needs best. We will always be led by what you would like to do and will always maintain an open dialogue so we can shape your rehabilitation together.
