In-Home Health is about managing the patient’s condition with as much comfort, convenience, and respect as possible. Among these challenging conditions include the difficulty of moving body parts. Passive range of motion means the movement (such as stretching) of a body part (such as a leg). This may sound simple or easy, but patients with certain conditions may find doing this exercise painful or difficult.
When body parts are left unused for a while, the muscles weaken. It will eventually be more difficult for the patient to use them. In some cases, this stillness invites unhygienic circumstances or breeds infections.
Because of the patients’ difficulty moving their arms or legs, they need a professional to safely guide them along the way. Our advanced personal care services assist patients’ passive range of motion. It includes assessment, guided stretching, other physical activities, and patient monitoring. We provide feedback to the patient and their family to continuously improve their condition.
