FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What equipment is commonly used in physical therapy?
There are six general categories of physical therapy equipment. These include exercise equipment (such as equipment for cardio equipment or strength training), massage equipment, topical pain relief, education material, and stability tables. Typically, most physical therapists will have various equipment and furniture in their office as well, including chairs, shelving, desks, computers, and massage tables. The exact equipment will differ depending on the physical therapist and your medical or therapeutic needs.
What exactly are rehabilitation tools?
Rehabilitation tools will vary depending on your condition and physical therapy schedule. However, rehabilitation supplies often include exercise bands, tubing & balls (which can help you target and rehabilitate certain parts of your body post-injury), wobble board (to improve mobility, balance and total body conditioning), cushions, and Swiss balls. Patients may also use more sophisticated physical therapy supplies like muscle stimulators and TENS machines. Your therapist may also use cardio equipment like treadmills and stationary bikes to introduce aerobic exercises into your rehabilitation program.
What types of exercises are used in physical therapy?
Physical therapy utilizes exercises that are designed to improve flexibility and function, decrease pain, and improve strength. If you have an injury or chronic condition, a therapist will incorporate numerous exercises into your treatment plan. The therapist will talk you through each exercise and help you develop a program that works for your needs.
These exercises may include:
- Range of motion exercises
- Balance training
- Strength Training
- Progressive resistance training
- Aerobic conditioning
- Upper extremity exercise (using upper extremity exercise equipment)
- Lower extremity exercises
Can physical therapy be done at home?
Yes, physical therapy can be done at home. Home-care physical therapy involves a physical therapist coming to your home to offer rehab and treatment. This service is usually for patients who cannot leave their house due to their condition but still require physical therapy. Therapists will often alter their plan to accommodate your living arrangement, though you may not get full access to the level of equipment used. Therefore, you may want to look for physical therapy exercise equipment for sale to ensure you get the best treatment.
How many times a week should you do physical therapy exercises?
Physical therapy plans change from patient to patient. However, if you only perform exercises when you go to your appointments, you probably won’t make a full recovery in the allotted time. You may also increase your chance of suffering other medical complications.
For treatment to work, you should try to perform your PT exercises between three and five times per week, as long as you know how to do them safely. You may also want to invest in some rehabilitation supplies such as exercise bands or light weights for strength training to benefit from those exercises.
What is a physical therapy kit?
A physical therapy kit is a collection of items designed to facilitate therapies conducted by physical therapists and students. These kits are an excellent starting point, including numerous items you’ll need in classes or with patients. These kits usually include physical therapy supplies like stethoscopes, heart rate monitors, blood pressure monitors, tape, oxygen level monitors, and similar items.
