Occupational Therapy

We provide occupational therapy that is beneficial to people who seek a greater sense of freedom and independence following a decline in function.

Our occupational therapy interventions may include activities to develop: strength or flexibility, protect joints, conserve energy, endurance, increase coordination and dexterity, sensory integration, and skills in the use of adaptive equipment or compensatory strategies. Occupational therapists may also provide ergonomic assessment, functional capacity evaluations, and home evaluations.

Some of the people we assist are diagnosed with conditions or injuries such as: Trigger Finger, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Burn Injuries, CVA/ stroke, Cumulative Trauma Disorders, Hand Injuries (including fracture), Spinal Cord Injuries, and Cerebral Palsy. Physicians may also refer people for occupational therapy following a surgical procedure to the hand or elbow to enhance the healing process.

An evaluation for occupational therapy is available upon physician referral. Please call our office if you have questions regarding the referral process, health insurance reimbursement, or to schedule an appointment.

 

Hand Therapy - Occupational therapists specializing in hand therapy can provide rehabilitative interventions allowing the hand to function well in addition to preventing further injury.

 

Neuro - People who are diagnosed with a neurological related disease, disorder, or injury often experience a decline in function and/or independence. This can be a scary time in their lives.

Our occupational therapists evaluate the person for strengths and deficits and determine ways in which a person can return to their life routines safely and successfully. Therapeutic intervention and goals are developed by working as a team with the patient, family, physician, caretakers, and therapist. Our occupational therapy team’s goals are the same as the patient’s goals: to return or maintain as productive and meaningful lives as possible.

 

Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) - FCE’s are usually requested by a physician, employer, insurance company, or through Worker’s Compensation. These assessments are used to test strength, flexibility, fitness, and the ability to perform work related tasks. The information obtained through the evaluation can assist in determining the worker’s readiness to return to their job. This information can also be used to decide how to modify the employee’s work area to make them safe and efficient.

A specific job analysis can be completed at the work site (with employer approval) for an additional charge.
