Mobile Physio
About Home Physiotherapy


Riley Physiotherapists  have been making Physiotherapy accessible by providing home physiotherapy to the upper highway community for over 20 years. This is particularly useful post surgery or hospitalisation, during illness, for the elderly and for those with disabilities.

The physiotherapist can observe the patient’s home environment and provide recommendations for modifications that can improve the patient’s mobility and overall health. Additionally, the physiotherapist can work with the patient’s family or caregivers to ensure that they understand how to assist the patient with their exercises and activities.

This unique service that brings physiotherapy services to the comfort of a patient’s home has many benefits:

  1. Convenience: Mobile physiotherapy allows patients to receive treatment in the comfort of their own home, saving them time and energy that would otherwise be spent traveling to a clinic.
  2. Personalised Care: Mobile physiotherapy offers personalised care, as the physiotherapist can assess the patient’s specific needs and develop a treatment plan tailored to their individual goals and limitations.
  3. Reduced Risk of Infection: With the COVID-19 pandemic, mobile physiotherapy offered a safer alternative to in-person clinic visits by minimizing the patient’s exposure to other individuals. This may still be beneficial to at-risk patients.
  4. Improved Patient Outcomes: By receiving treatment in their home environment, patients may be more comfortable and relaxed, which can lead to better treatment outcomes.
  5. Improved Adherence: Patients are more likely to adhere to their treatment plan when it is convenient and accessible, which can result in faster recovery times.
  6. Accessible Care: Mobile physiotherapy can be particularly beneficial for patients with mobility issues or disabilities who may have difficulty accessing medical centres.

Overall, mobile physiotherapy offers a unique service that can improve convenience, personalised care, and treatment outcomes while reducing the risk of infection and increasing accessibility for patients.
