Physical Therapy

At Home Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is treatment that focuses on improving a person's function, whether it's related to bones, joints, muscles or nerves. Typically, a person's function has been impaired in some manner as a result of an injury, wear and tear, or as part of the aging process.

When treating geriatric patients, Physical Therapists most often treat functional problems such as pain, balance issues, poor endurance, trouble walking and poor muscle strength. They also provide patients with therapeutic programs to retain strength.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is treatment that focuses on helping a person achieve independence in his or her day-to-day life. In the geriatric population, Occupational Therapists typically focus on a person's activities of daily living (ADL). Examples include: bathing, dressing, and grooming abilities. They also focus on functional transfers. Functional transfers are the ability to transfer safely to the bed , tub, toilet, chair etc. They are trained to identify the deficits in strength, balance, coordination that result in problems in these areas and create interventions to address the deficits.

In addition, equipment recommendations may be made including rolling walkers, tub benches, commodes and adaptive eating utensils to promote safety and independence.

Within the geriatric population, Speech-Language Pathologists typically focus on speech, language, voice, cognition, and swallowing. It is their job to identify a problem in these areas and provide treatment to enhance a person's ability to communicate with family, friends, and doctors, as well as make safe, competent decisions.

Speech-Language Pathologists are also skilled in identifying and treating swallowing difficulties.
