Occupational Therapy

The goal of occupational therapy is to return people to their highest level of functioning, so they are able to regain their ability to accomplish routine activities of daily living (dressing, bathing, grooming, eating, etc.). By using various exercise and training techniques, occupational therapy helps increase people’s independence and well-being. Occupational therapy works best in a home setting, as it allows you regain these abilities in the place where you need them the most.

Some of the conditions treated by occupational therapy include:

  • Joint replacements
  • Amputations
  • Fractures
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Chronic pain
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Neurological disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Post-surgery issues
