A recent article has highlighted that home based rehabilitation is just as effective as inpatient hospital rehabilitation.
Whilst recovery at a rehabilitation hospital can be effective (and in some cases is necessary), commonly patients recover just as well when in their own environments at home.
This has shown to be the case particularly for joint replacements such as hip or knee replacements. Mobile physiotherapy means that patients who are safe to return home after their surgery can do so, without needing to spend time in a rehabilitation facility.
Our physiotherapists can visit you in your own home, providing the same level of physiotherapy care as you would receive in a rehab facility. "The Australian" newspaper recently published an article stating that "inpatient rehab for knee operations is no better than recovery at home" - to read the full article click here.
