“Skills for the Job of Living”

Occupational therapy is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of services used for patients experiencing difficulties in performing everyday tasks. We want you to get back to your independence in your work and personal lives.

Occupational Therapy Treatments

Treatments can improve range of motion and strength, as well hone fine motor skills through the use of manual therapy, therapeutic exercises and adaptive equipment. Occupational therapy is also very useful in helping patients who have sustained bodily injuries regain function in a variety of areas, including:

  • Dressing
  • Bathing
  • Grooming
  • Driving

Our occupational therapists can help treat a wide range of diagnoses, including:

  • CVA and neurological impairments
  • Work-related injuries, both traumatic and repetitive injuries
  • Multiple sclerosis, arthritis and other chronic illnesses
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones

Occupational Therapy Assessments

Part of the occupational services we provide is ensuring the equipment you use and the space you live in is safe. Our staff can perform ergonomic assessments, equipment inspections and home safety evaluations to make sure your therapy’s progress won’t be interrupted by something in your living environment.
