Occupational Therapists have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice focused on helping people of all ages to live life to its fullest by promoting health, and preventing—or living better with—injury, illness, or disability.
Occupational Therapy Benefits
Our Occupational Therapy staff provide skilled therapeutic intervention to help you return to your normal functional ability with daily activities. They treat patients with injuries that occur at work and play.
They specialize in helping patients with tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, trigger finger, De Quervain's and joint replacements of the shoulder and hand. They also work with patients that have been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, strokes, dizziness and balance problems. They not only help you regain strength and range of motion but are functional to help with tasks like dressing, bathing and return to work or play.
With occupational therapy services you can:
- Achieve goals, such as helping you stay as healthy and productive as possible while managing a chronic medical condition.
- Maintain or rebuild your independence, such as using assistive devices so you can care for yourself after an orthopedic injury or a stroke.
- Participate in the everyday activities important to you, such as driving, visiting friends, going to church, and other activities that keep you involved with your community.
