The Physical therapists at Allegiance Home Health are specially trained and highly educated health care professionals, caregivers who are passionate about helping our senior patients ( your loved one ) improve their mobility, help restore their functionality, improve their range of motion, prevent disability and limit their pain. Our physical therapists ( also known as PTs ) also work with our senior patients to prevent the loss of function and mobility by creating and implementing wellness and fitness programs for a healthier, more active lifestyle.
Examples of treatment provided by PTs include coordination and balancing activities to decrease falls endurance training, improving range of motion, helping with the ability to stand up and sit down in a chair or sitting up and getting out of bed, soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, stretching and much more.
If your loved one suffers from chronic injuries or conditions, or just needs extra attention to maintain or improve their physical condition, then bringing in a qualified physical therapist is a good idea. At Allegiance Home Health, our mission is to provide the most compassionate, confident and devoted caregivers who consider their work a calling and and our PTs meet that higher standard of care. You’ll see the difference when you meet our friendly and talented staff – we truly care!

Our physical therapists work as a part of our experienced and talented health care team, and consult with specialists and surgeons as needed. Our PTs are trained to use a variety of modalities in order to provide the highest quality care for our patients.

Some of the duties performed by physical therapists include:
