COMMON CONDITIONS WE TREAT AND SERVICES WE OFFER
Fall Risk/Balance Issues
Do you feel off balance, have you sustained a fall within the past 6 months,do you need to hold onto furniture as youwalk throughout your home or are you simply fearful of falling? No one should ever feel scared to stand up or walk around their home or community. Unfortunately, millions of Americans suffer from this fear every single day. As we age, unfortunately, our muscles and tendons weaken, our joints begin to stiffen and our bones become more brittle and often ache and our vision tends to worsen. Basic tasks that used to seem so simple like bending down to picksomething up off the floor, getting out of bed, walking to the bathroom, etc. aren’t so simple any more. And worst-off majority of the elderly population has no one to depend on and even if they do, noone wants to feel like they are burdening a loved one. This is why it is so importantto receive the care you deserve, at your convenience, right at the comfort of your own home.
A sad fact of our aging population is that they often suffer from memory loss and confusion. But when that loss becomes much more rapid and the inability to learn new things/make new memories becomes almost impossible you may have early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia. It is extremely important to speak with a medical professional if you are experiencing such signs/symptoms. As such condition’s progress the individual often has difficulty with language and problems with reading, writing, and working with numbers. Organizing your thoughts and thinking logically becomes more difficult causing you to become more frustrated.
Unfortunately, as such chronic disease manifest throughout your body, it becomes increasingly more difficult to perform all of the necessary activities of daily living such as getting out of bed and dressed, bathing, eating/swallowing, walking around, even speaking. While wecannot stop the progression of such diseases, we can help slow the progression as well as help you live morecomfortably by providing the proper physical, occupational and speech therapy. Early intervention is key to helping slow a progression of these awfuldiseases.
Parkinson's disease is a disorder that affects the brain leading to uncontrollable shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and overall coordination. Symptoms usually begin gradually and progressively worsenover time. As the disease progresses, people may have difficulty walking and talking. Similar to most chronic progressively worsening diseases, early intervention is key. The sooner an individual can begin a regime of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy the better. It is imperative to begin strengthening any weakened muscles, focus of proper gait training and re-training, improving basic activities of daily living and above all challenge the mind and body collectively.While therapy will never be a cure for theprogression of the disease, it can certainly improve your quality of life while learning to live with the everyday challenges.
Experiencing a stroke can be a very scary thing. One minute your fine and the next you have lost complete use of 1 side of your body. A stroke is not only physically debilitating, but mentally as well, depending on the area of the brain affected. What’s most important to understand about a stroke is how quickly you receive treatment will significantly affect the outcome of your recovery. The treatment/recovery process can be very slow and uncertain at times but you can never give up trying to improve. What happens in the coming days, weeks and months following a stroke are what makeall difference in your recovery process. We at Attain are here to help. We can provide a physical, occupational and speech therapist to come to your home and begin an aggressive regime of exercise and care, helping you regain as much function as possible, as quickly as possible.
Total Joint Replacements
Total joint replacements are no longer a procedure of the future. Now-a-days it has become so common for people of all ages, especially the senior community to receive total joint replacements. The total hip and total knee replacement are amongst the two most common procedures amongst seniors. The surgery, post hospitalization as well as the recovery of these procedures has vastly improved over the years, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the amount of rigorous exercise and/or stretching required post-surgery to regain full strength and ROM. Unfortunately, the coming weeks after receiving a total jointreplacement an individual is unable to drive, therefore making it extremely difficult to receive the proper therapy. That is why Attain Physical Therapy provides a full spectrum of care, from theinitial home care visits you would receiveimmediately after surgery to the outpatient care you can receive in one of our offices once you are strong and comfortable enough to drive.
Shoulder surgeries, similar to total joint replacements are becoming more and more prevalent every day, especially amongst the senior community. While recovery from your typical rotator cuff tear or other shoulder surgeries isn’t thattraumatic, the ability to perform many of your daily tasks due to only having use ofone arm becomes very apparent immediately after surgery. We are a society that is always on the go and unfortunately may of your everyday basic tasks become increasingly difficult with only one functional arm such as, buttoning a shirt, pulling up your pants orbuckling a belt. How about tying your shoes, combing your hair, eating, or evendriving become a struggle when recovering from shoulder surgery. That iswhy Attain PT makes it easy for you. We don’t expect you to get to outpatient therapy on your own, that is why we bring the therapy to your home. Our qualified therapists will challenge you and get you back to your prior level of function in no time by utilizing manual therapy and stretching techniques as well as focusing on specific exercises to rebuild any muscle loss. We at Attain PT are here to serve all your needs so that you can Attain your greatness!
