A lot of therapy can be provided in the home, which is not only more comfortable for the patient, but also can help speed up recovery after surgery, an illness or injury. Daily activities can be conducted in a more convenient location, allowing families to be more involved in the rehabilitation process.

Physical therapy is important for individuals to regain their functionality and independence, which is a critical part of recovery. Physical therapists can also prevent loss of mobility or functionality, by developing fitness and wellness programs to help patients lead healthier and more active lifestyles.
