The focus of Occupational Therapy is to improve independence in daily living skills. Care is provided by Licensed Occupational Therapists who have earned a bachelor's degree or master's degree.
Tasks such as dressing, eating, managing household activities, and working are often difficult to perform after an injury or disability. Techniques to enhance and improve arm and hand function are provided by Occupational Therapy.
Many kinds of patients utilize Occupational Therapy to promote recovery after tendon injures, hand or arm fractures, upper extremity injuries, wounds, arthritis, and neurological deficits. Occupational Therapists also see patients after orthopedic, cardiac, and breast surgery.
Our stroke rehabilitation program includes assessment and treatment of visual, cognitive, self care, and neuromuscular deficits.
