Many people associate athletes, bodybuilders, or younger exercise enthusiasts with “physical fitness”. Physical fitness applies as much to members of aging and elderly communities as it does to anyone else. Fitness is more often about your body’s ability to do important tasks without fear of injury than it is about top athletic performance. 
Your overall physical fitness directly impacts your health and safety.

A physical therapist can help you answer the following: 

  • Are you strong enough to complete daily activities like bathing or moving about your house? (If this is considered a concern for you, you may also consider CASA Healthcare’s occupational therapy services as part of your plan.
  • Do you have sufficient balance to avoid a dangerous fall? Do you have the knowledge and ability on the best way to get back up after a minor fall?
  • Are you maintaining the strength of your major muscle groups rather than declining? If not, what can you change? 

If any of these areas is in question, CASA Healthcare’s home physical therapy services can help you.

How Does Physical Therapy Help?

Even understanding that physical fitness impacts your ability to live independently in your own home, it may be tempting to think that you can maintain that fitness by exercising on your own or just continuing to do the daily activities you love. Both of those things are also important, but can be safer and easier with the help of a physical therapist, and even more convenient when therapy is conducted in the comfort of your own home.

A board-certified physical therapist can:

  • Evaluate your current physical fitness. If you overestimate your fitness, you may injure yourself. If you underestimate your fitness, you may lose strength you currently have. An expert assessment can help you pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Conduct hands-on physical therapy. Physical therapy isn’t just about you exercising with expert advice. It also involves manual therapy (or hands-on therapy) by a certified therapist to improve soft tissue mobility, strengthen joints, help you with correct form and preventing injury during exercise, and observe you for progress and adjustments.
  • Help you meet milestones. When you have viable goals and a home physical therapist to help you meet them, the sky's the limit. CASA Healthcare’s physical therapists are trained to listen to your needs and adapt therapies accordingly. We’re here to help.

If you’ve just had joint replacement surgery, are recovering from a recent fall, had a stroke that affected your mobility, or are experiencing generalized weakness brought on by aging, you may recognize your need for a physical therapist and you may be thinking, “How do I find the best physical therapy near me?” In that moment, remember CASA Healthcare.
