Don’t be fooled by the name “occupational therapy.” It has less to do with your occupation and more to do with helping you perform your daily activities and maintain your independence.
Our occupational therapists (OTs) work with virtually all disabilities in a variety of settings. These include clinics, schools, nursing homes, private homes and work sites.
We help stroke and heart attack patients. We help people with arthritis, MS, Guillain-Barré, spinal cord injuries, work-related injuries, amputations, orthopedic problems and total joint replacements. These conditions interfere with functional independence and impact your ability to perform activities of daily living:
- Community re-entry
- Job re-entry
In addition to helping/training patients with the activities of daily living, we provide static and dynamic splinting for edema control, range of motion, positioning and better function.
We also provide:
- Hand Therapy – Whether you suffer from arthritis, a work-related hand injury or an orthopedic problem that affects your hands, we can help you improve your abilities to grasp and hold objects and use your finger dexterity.
- Strengthening – We help improve strength, endurance, range of motion and posture to help promote greater independence.
- Motor Skills – We look to improve gross and fine-motor coordination for the activities of daily living.
- Cognitive/Perceptual Skills – We help patients improve these skills with:
- Visual perception training
- Environmental changes
- Cognitive retraining
