Occupational Therapy

Sometime in our lives many of us will face physical, cognitive, or mental health challenges that will prevent us from being as independent and active as we’d like. These challenges can begin at birth, develop gradually later in life, or arise suddenly at any age.

Occupational therapy makes it possible for people facing such challenges to participate more fully in the job of living at home, at work and at play. Occupational therapy helps adults acquire daily living skills needed to engage in meaningful activities, ranging from self-care such as dressing and feeding oneself to work, leisure and community pursuits.

Occupational Therapists work with patients with the following conditions:

  • Neurological Disorders
  • Orthopedic Disorders
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Paralysis
  • Shoulder, Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Injuries
  • Stroke
  • Upper Extremity Arthritis
  • Low Vision
  • Cognitive Perceptual Dysfunction
  • Work related injuries to the upper extremities

To help establish greater strength and range of motion,  increased independence in self care and home activities, and improve fine-motor skills, treatments may include:

  • Cognitive Rehabilitation
  • Orthopedic Rehabilitation
  • Sensory Reeducation
  • Activities of Daily Living Retraining
  • Splinting
  • Joint Protecting Education
  • Work Conditioning
  • Patient/Family Education
