In its simplest terms, occupational therapists help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations) including helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
Hand & Arm Care
Therapists deliver care for the hand and arm after an injury, pain from overuse, and dysfunction. Basic fine motor skills are addressed and strengthened.
Certified Hand Specialists create splinting for the individual patient.
Individuals utilize functional cognition to process every day activities in their environments. Therapists work on early identification and implementing plans to improve life skills.
Highly skilled therapists help patients who struggle with ADLs (activities of daily living) such as grooming, dressing, feeding, toileting. Identifying individual deficits allow the patients the highest form of independence.
Sensory Integration Specialist
Specialized therapy for those children diagnosed with sensory integration disorder.
Returning to work after an on-the-job injury, occupational and physical therapists help you repair and recover.
As your child grows, developmental milestones are targets for maturing: rolling over, sitting, crawling, walking, jumping, and playing. Keeping up with peers is fundamental to a child. Occupation therapists & physical therapists help guide those struggling with determined milestones.
