In-Home Massage

At Gateway Home Healthcare all of our health care providers will conduct an extensive assessment that will include a health history, evaluation of pain and movement patterns, strength, joint range of motion, reflexes and sensation. In addition, the health care provider will examines relevant xrays, laboratory tests, medical records and surgical notes. Based on this assessment the health practitioner establishes a diagnosis and works in partnership with the other health care practitioners helping the patient to develop individualized goals and treatment programs
