Physical Therapy

Our Physical Therapists will assess the functional abilities of a new patient, as well as evaluating the existing home environment for any challenges or issues that it may present for the patient. The PT will then create and administer an exercise program, designed to strengthen muscles and improve range of motion. Our Physical Therapists work together with physicians, nurses and home health aides to promote coordinated, high quality care for you or your loved one.

We are selective and only hire Physical and Occupational Therapists that have graduated from a certified Physical Therapy program.  In addition, all Med Plus HealthCare Physical Therapists must be licensed by the Missouri State Board of Health Arts and have a minimum of two years of previous experience as a physical therapist.

Our Physical Therapy Services Include:

  • Therapeutic Exercises
  • Muscle Re-Education
  • Balance and Gait Training
  • Prosthetic Training
  • Home Modification Adjustments
  • Instruction on Use of Assistive Devices

Our Physical Therapy Assessment Process:

When a patient is interested in home health care for themselves or a loved one, a Med Plus  Nurse is on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist with urgent medical questions or situational issues.  We will initiate a complete phone assessment during normal business hours and evaluate the most appropriate home health services for the patient’s unique needs.

Once we have obtained all the necessary information, Med Plus HealthCare will conduct a Case Conference to determine and recommend a specialized treatment plan for the patient.  Our Intake Coordinator follows up by contacting the patient’s physicians and other health care providers to receive their medical orders and to coordinate our services directly with their Plan of Care. We also contact and verify the insurance provider/payer source (i.e. Medicare, private insurance, etc.) and obtain treatment authorization when required by the policy.

When the insurance has been confirmed and authorized, A Med Plus Registered Nurse is sent to the patient’s home to complete a full physical assessment. (The RN will phone the patient beforehand to arrange the visit day and time frame.)  If it is determined that additional medical services are needed, the Registered Nurse will then communicate with the patient’s doctors or other health care providers to coordinate the appropriate care.

Throughout our patient’s home health care service period, our team members are dedicated to providing professional and compassionate care that is tailored to meet individual needs and achieve home health success.
