Osteoarthritis of the Knee
Large Review Confirms Efficacy of In-Home Physical Therapy
Osteoarthritis causes more disability in walking, stair climbing, and housekeeping than any other disease.¹ Lower extremity weakness is common in osteoarthritis of the knee. Strengthening, coordination, and aerobic improvement may decrease joint loading rate and stresses on articular cartilage, thereby playing an important role in ameliorating the progression of osteoarthritis. A referral for physical therapy has long been part of recommendations for treatment options, and new evidence confirms and qualifies the efficacy of such referrals.
As of January 27, 2017, Five Star Home Health, Inc. has been officially added to an exclusive list of providers for Keck Medical Center of USC and USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. This list will be given to patients that are seeking a home health agency following joint replacement.
We are proud and privileged to have the opportunity to be one of the select few to provide home health care services for such a respected set of hospitals that are consistently ranked among the nation’s best.
Many thanks to Keck and Verdugo for trusting Five Star Home Health to deliver passionate care for their patients. We look forward to building a relationship focused on bringing a better quality of health and superior outcomes.
For more information on the services we’ll be providing for these USC hospitals, email us or give us a call at 310-642-0026.
