Occupational Therapy

Our new occupational therapy services allow us to widen our scope and provide much-needed treatment options for both orthopedic and neurological patient populations.

Our occupational therapists aim to improve the health and participation of patients through engagement in daily activities, or occupations, that are meaningful to the patient. Through the merging of traditional evidence-based occupational therapy practices with the fundamentals of Applied Functional Science, we empower our clients to meet their goals and achieve the best outcomes.

Occupational therapy bridges the gap between the brain and the body, working on restorative, preparatory, or compensatory strategies to help patients prevent, recover from, or live better with injury, illness, or disability by adapting the environment and/or tasks to fit the person.
 

Common occupational therapy interventions include helping patients with:
 

Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
