Outpatient therapy is a form of therapeutic treatment offered to individuals who do not need to be in a skilled nursing setting on a continual basis. A number of therapies can be offered on an outpatient basis including occupational, speech, physical, and post-surgical care. Many patients prefer outpatient therapy because it allows them to receive necessary medical care while staying at home. It also allows patients to live a relatively normal life while simply setting aside time to attend therapy sessions.
If you suffer from any of these conditions, you could benefit from outpatient therapy:
- Back pain
- Joint stiffness or pain
- Lack of blood flow
- Muscle weakness or spasms
- Lack of endurance or range of motion
- Shingles (Herpes Zoster)
