Don’t let inclement weather or a lack of parking availability or transportation keep you from receiving quality physical therapy. Take the next step to improving your physical health.
There are many settings in which a client can receive physical therapy. However, there are also many challenges that a client can face when attempting to go to a location. With in-home physical therapy, physical therapists provide individualized, one-to-one skilled physical therapy in the convenience of your home. You will no longer need to worry about transportation to or from a facility or waste time looking for parking.
Another benefit of in-home physical therapy is that the therapists have the opportunity to provide a home safety assessment for the client. Why is this important? As we advance in age, in addition to factors such as poor flexibility, poor strength, impaired vision and impaired mobility, there are external factors that can affect our balance and lead to an increased risk of falls. These factors include poor lighting, area rugs and loose power cords. The physical therapist will assess these risk factors and provide education to the client on how to improve safety in their home.
IASO Rehabilitation provides in-home physical therapy. IASO’s physical therapists are New York State licensed therapists with years of experience working with a variety of conditions and ages. IASO therapists recognize that each client is an individual and they provide individualized, evidence-based treatment and exercise programs accordingly. Treatment sessions provided are one-to-one, 45- to 60-minute sessions with a licensed physical therapist. Therapists work with the client to establish individualized goals, focusing on improving function and quality of life.
Services provided by IASO Rehabilitation are reimbursed by Medicare Part B and the secondary insurance covers the co-pay. IASO is aware that the insurance aspect can be overwhelming and, therefore, will help you navigate through the Medicare process.
