Our occupational therapists assess your current abilities and work with you, your family, caregivers and your medical team to create personalized goals to restore your independence. Occupational therapy is a science-driven, evidence-based rehabilitation treatment focused on increasing your function to the highest possible level.
Occupational therapy services are designed to promote optimal independence for individuals with physical injuries or developmental disorders. Occupational therapy will help you accomplish daily tasks such as dressing, bathing, grooming and self-feeding. Modified ways to perform tasks such as fishing, gardening, sewing or cooking are included in your treatment regime to help you gain function and independence. An occupational therapist will also assist with upper body function, dynamic and static balance and adaptive equipment needs.
