Classically, individuals seeking therapy once discharged from the hospital typically had two options. One, they could be considered for home health services, which can be a low intensity therapy option in the home. The second option would be going to an outpatient clinic, which requires the individual to find transportation, manage waiting rooms, be in contact with more populated areas, and potentially be seen by multiple different clinicians.
Mobile therapy is an emerging practice. The therapist has the freedom to visit the client in our office, in the client's home, and/or out in the community.
We also treat patients in a clinical setting at Rogue Physical Therapy & Wellness
