Occupational therapy involves the rehabilitation of patients who have difficulty performing the activities of daily living, including dressing and grooming as well as work activities. Our occupational therapists are experts in providing treatment designed to maximize patient function. Occupational therapists also treat hand function and injury for cumulative trauma, tendon repairs, fractures, scarring and neurological problems.
Adult Neuro Rehabilitation
Our staff is trained and certified in NDT (Neuro Developmental Training). Our clinical diversity extends into the treatment of various neurological disorders, providing physical, occupational, and speech therapy for patients with CVA (stroke), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries), spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, vestibular/balance dysfunctions, peripheral neuropathy, and other neurological dysfunctions. In addition to the treatment protocols for neurological rehabilitation, we also provide prosthetic training, equipment assessments and recommendations, home safety evaluations, and patient/family/caregiver education and training.
Our Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) specializes in the rehabilitation of patients who may have been affected by an accident or trauma leaving them with scars, injured tendons or nerves, fractures, or those who have cumulative trauma disorders – such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome. Custom-fabricated splints are sometimes recommended to help increase functional use of an extremity, immobilize areas and improve range of motion.
To improve recovery and prevent future injuries, we have staff trained in ergonomics and job station modification. By visiting the individual’s work site, we can assess and recommend changes to avoid or minimize future injuries. We can also provide on site training and education for the prevention of musculo-skeletal injuries.
