Occupational Therapy

Occupational TherapyOccupational therapy addresses a person’s ability to perform activities of daily living, which can include bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, meal preparation, financial management, leisure activities, cleaning and even working.

Our occupational therapists can:

  • Instruct individuals on the use of adaptive equipment and strategies for increased independence and safety with daily activities based on visual, perceptual, cognitive and/or physical limitations.
  • Work with caregivers to problem solve, and provide education on ways patients can increase participation in daily activities and self-care.
  • Provide patients and caregivers with exercises and activities to promote improved coordination, improved arm/hand motion and strength, decreased spasticity and improved arm/hand functional use.
  • Provide education about appropriate home exercise programs and community fitness resources.
  • Recommend home or environmental modifications to promote independence and safety.
  • Educate individuals about activities to promote visual, perceptual and/or cognitive skills.
  • Fabricate or recommend upper extremity splints to reduce spasticity, improve or maintain motion, decrease pain or improve positioning, or for protection following an injury.
  • Instruct individuals in ways they may be able to incorporate a weaker arm in daily activities for increased function.
  • Educate patients in joint protection and energy conservation techniques.
