Occupational therapists work with individuals to enhance their functional ability and participation in daily activities. Occupational therapists utilize therapeutic and self-care activities, manual therapy techniques, adaptive equipment recommendations, as well as training and education of family members and caregivers to achieve functional independence.
Conditions treated by occupational therapists include, but are not limited to, post-surgical intervention, orthopedic conditions, Osteo/Rheumatoid Arthritis, neurological injuries, spinal cord injury and closed head injury.
Your occupational therapist will evaluate your condition, then develop and manage your plan of care, customizing it to your individual needs. Occupational therapy helps individuals get back to their activities of daily living in the safest and most independent level possible.
