Physiotherapy at home
Are you unable to do your own grocery shopping? Is climbing stairs in the house difficult? Can you still reach for all the cupboards in the kitchen? Is it difficult to dress and undress? Are you no longer as flexible and mobile as before? These are general problems that make living at home difficult. But of course there can be more going on. Such as a painful condition or illness that is diagnosed, or that you often fall into the house and get scared to move.
Mobile Practice Greater Amsterdam
With the Mobile Practice, the Spits Center for Physical Therapy focuses on the complex care needs of patients in the home situation. With this we have been active in Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Ouderkerk a / d Amstel and the surrounding area for more than 15 years.
The field service physiotherapists are specialized in treating at home. They treat patients with complex care needs who are referred by the GP to a physiotherapist, but who cannot come to the practice. This not only concerns the elderly, but also patients who, for example due to stroke, dementia, Parkinson’s disease or a broken hip, show signs of old age. In addition, physical therapists often guide patients who go to day care, but cannot receive physiotherapy there. A physiotherapist is in our second home, at the Zeilbrug location, formerly Heliomare Dagbesteding, in Amsterdam South every day to treat patients. A physiotherapist also treats patients who live in the Theresia residential care center in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. There are four therapists active in the field. They have monthly collegial meetings, during which dossiers are discussed and treatments are evaluated. Our physiotherapists are fully specialized in home treatment.
If you want to be eligible for home treatment, you must get a referral for home treatment from the doctor.
The physical therapist treats patients with complex care needs, such as:
- Parkinson’s disease
- Cross lesion
- Stroke / stroke
- Chronic pain complaints
- Muscle disease
You can also deploy our physiotherapists at:
- General pain complaints
- Postoperative care
- Traumatic disorders
- Heart, vascular and lung problems
- Advice with increased fall risk, homework exercises and exercise advice at home
You may receive a referral for physiotherapy at home after hospitalization or after an outpatient appointment with your specialist. Our mobile practice works closely with institutions, hospitals and nursing homes in the Amsterdam region, including:
