Mobile physiotherapy treatment for arthritis in Vancouver. Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. This inflammation may result in stiff joints, tense muscles and limitation in limb flexibility. While arthritis is usually seen in adults over the age of 65 years, it may present itself in young adults, teens and even children. Unfortunately, there is no cure for arthritis, but the condition can be managed. One of the ways to manage arthritis is with physiotherapy. Physiotherapy involves the use of special exercises to improve mobility and function of the affected areas. While physiotherapy can be used as an accompanying treatment along with prescription medication, it may also be used on its own as an alternative treatment.
Normally, physiotherapy sessions are conducted in a physiotherapy clinic. However, there is now the option of mobile physiotherapy as well. With mobile physiotherapy, also known as in-home physiotherapy, your physiotherapist comes to you.
If you are suffering from arthritis you should consider mobile physiotherapy. Here’s why:
Mobile physiotherapy allows for personalized attention
When a mobile physiotherapist come to your home, you will receive personalized attention. Arthritis can sometimes make it difficult for you to move around your home and complete your chores. With mobile physiotherapy, your physiotherapist can customize exercises to suit your specific needs and help you navigate your home with ease and complete what have become difficult tasks.
It is also less likely for you or your physiotherapist be distracted during a mobile physiotherapy treatment session as you will be the only patient there to be attended to. The benefit to be derived from having this one-on-one care is that there will be more focus on the creation and subsequent completion of a treatment plan.
Mobile physiotherapy is convenient for those with limited mobility
If you have limited mobility because of your arthritis, you may worry about how you will get from place to place. You may need to carefully plan transportation and you will need to think about ease of access when entering and exiting buildings. Mobile physiotherapy removes the worry, stress and anxiety you may feel when you trying to figure out the logistics of getting around. With mobile physiotherapy, all you need to do is schedule an appointment and pay for the service. You don’t have to worry about the little details.
Mobile Physiotherapy offers privacy
Mobile physiotherapy allows clients to be treated with dignity by offering privacy. When persons are sick their privacy is sometimes compromised to allow for the management of their illness. However, privacy is an inherent need for everyone. With Mobile physiotherapy, patients get the privacy they need. During your session, you will be alone with your physiotherapist, unless you choose to invite someone else in. This might not be the case in a physiotherapy clinic as more than one patient may use the treatment facilities at the same time.
