Physical injury or disease can take away your independence. Sometimes just the simple daily tasks of getting dressed or taking a bath are challenging. We’ll show you techniques and exercises to help you strengthen and regain the use of your hands and arms.
Our occupational therapy services include:
Retraining for Daily Activities
We work with patients of all ages following a medical illness or injury including but not limited to stroke, brain injury, orthopaedic injury, and/or physical deconditioning to regain independence with all self care and daily activities.
Following a hand or shoulder injury, occupational therapy can improve upper extremity function through manual therapy, exercise and modalities to improve range of motion and decrease pain.
One of the many modalities used after a hand/elbow or foot injury to transfer heat to soft tissue to promote healing, decrease pain, and increase mobility.
Splinting and Kinesotaping
Occupational therapists are trained to custom fabricate splints to provide support and stability following an upper extremity injury, as well as Kinesotaping in which an OT will facilitate the body's natural healing process with a specialized taping technique to stabilize muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion.
Occupational therapists work with patients following a neurological episode (brain injury or stroke) to improve memory and attention related to daily living skills.
Therapeutic Exercise/Neuromuscular Reeducation
Patient and Family Education
Education to the patient and family to empower their involvement both in the recovery process and for future prevention of re-injury.
Adaptive Equipment Assessments
Occupational therapists are trained to evaluate and train patients using countless devices that will increase independence with daily activities including but not limited to bathing, dressing, feeding, and mobility.
Occupational therapists work with pediatric patients to provide comprehensive evaluations and treatment plans addressing sensory processing needs, handwriting, gross and fine motor skills, developmental delays and Autism Spectrum Disorders
