HealthNow Home Healthcare provides physical therapy services as part of our medical services menu. Doctors often prescribe physical therapy as part of a patient’s recovery plan. HealthNow Home Healthcare provides nurses for medical recoveries and licensed physical therapists to help patients build strength and learn alternate ways of taking care of themselves. Our services ensure an optimal recovery. When seniors are recovering from illness or injury or are under home health care observation, doctors evaluate their condition and determine whether or not they require physical therapy treatment. Physical Therapy provides beneficial results for conditions that affect senior citizens.
