We offer one-on-one therapy in the home by certified physical therapists that identify the challenges and habits that are contributing to each unique diagnosis and the problems contributing to the pain cycle. We then customize an exercise program that patients can maintain on a daily basis.
Out-patient In-Home Physical Therapy
Our certified physical therapists treat patients with neurological and orthopedic problems. A patient will need to have a prescription from his or her physician. We are happy to assist you with the process. We then come to your home and evaluate the problems contributing to your pain and decreased function, and customize a treatment plan to improve your condition and restore function.
“Straighten up” is what our mothers told us. It is still true. Many people notice that their posture declines over the years. In our practice we have seen patients gain inches in height and restore their stature. We all know that with improved stature there is improved mobility, balance, and gait, which creates an increased sense of confidence. This is our top priority. As clients improve in posture they often see a reduction in joint pain. We measure curvature of the spine and identify the kyphotic index to determine if a brace may be appropriate in addition to the exercise routine to assist in posture correction.
Stand Tall Class
Every Tuesday Claire Stowell offers a class at the Yorba Linda Community Center 9:15am-10:15 am. This class focuses on safe exercises to improve participants' stature and alignment. She uses the Meeks Method© This comprehensive program is designed to prevent, arrest or reverse the common Patterns of Postural Change that occur as, but not necessarily because, people age. She combines this approach with models from pilates, yoga, and physical therapy stabilization exercises. Each participant needs to sign up at the front desk at the community center and bring a yoga mat. Sign up early because classes tend to fill up.
As people age we often become less active. Over the years inactivity can cause strength deficits, muscle restriction, and difficulty walking. We specialize in identifying what is causing each individual's balance deficits and implementing a plan to change that.
Home Ergonomic Set Up
How do you load your dishwasher? How do you bend over to garden or take out the trash? How you do these activities determines how your posture settles over the years and how pain patterns may emerge. Each therapist is trained in identifying optimal equipment set-up and position to do your daily tasks and hobbies. Having a therapist come to your home and review your alignment through each of your daily tasks will change the way you age, improve your balance, reduce your pain, and improve your function.
