This method keeps patients independent in their homes, and preventing falls and a safe environment within. If this is the route you choose in which to receive treatment, here’s what you need to know.
- Communicate. Once you have decided that in home Physiotherapy is your preferred way of getting the treatment, it is important to communicate with your therapist, referring physician and insurance carrier.
