In-Home Physical Therapy
While clinics oﬀer more instruments for recovery, we understand that it is not always possible for clients to make it to Elko Spine Physical Therapy because their injuries are too severe, or they are simply too weak to do so.
While we encourage all clients to make it a goal to transition out of in-home physical therapy, it is a service we are happy to oﬀer.
Who Can Beneﬁt?
In-home physical therapy is primarily oﬀered to seniors, but is also suggested for clients whose injuries are too severe to leave the house. In other cases clients suﬀering from mental trauma may also ﬁnd in-home physical therapy beneﬁcial.

Advantages of In-Home Physical Therapy
Given the fact that following surgery, 66% of clients prefer physical therapy initially at home. It can take a fair amount of time and eﬀort getting to/from an in-clinic appointment, it is easy to see home physical therapy as an attractive ﬁrst option.
Here at Elko Spine Physical Therapy we're aware that your time is valuable! On top of that, why risk further injury with travel when you can recover in the comfort of your own home? There are many advantages of a traveling physical therapist.
But What Are the Disadvantages?
In-home physical therapy can cover stroke rehabilitation, general pain in the back, neck, head, knee and hip regions, arthritis, tendinitis, fractures,and many more ailments you may suﬀer from.
However, therapists are limited to the tools they can bring with them to your residence and do not have access to the full range of equipment a clinic can oﬀer.
Activities such as aquatic therapy, electrotherapy, speciﬁc strength and speciﬁc balance training are all treatments that require a specialized environment to be successful.
Depending on the extent of your medical condition, it may be necessary for you to transition to a clinical environment to assist you in completing your rehab goals.
