Occupational Therapy (OT)
An occupational therapist’s overall goal is to help people continue to take care of themselves and safely resume as many of their activities of daily living as possible. They do so by looking at the daily tasks people must do to care for themselves, then breaking these tasks down into parts to make them safer and easier to do.
OT practitioners are skilled professionals who focus on the social, emotional, and physiological effects of illness and injury.
Our therapists see patients during acute medical stays and as
outpatients. They have an important role in helping people recover from total joint replacement, upper extremity injury,arthritis, stroke, MS, Parkinson’s, or other neurological problems.
