Our office incorporates a fully functional, world-class occupational therapy clinic. Staffed by a licensed occupational therapist, patients are provided physician-supervised care and progress is relayed on a daily basis. When a patient has an injury, he or she likely will have a difficult time completing everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, using the bathroom, and attending to chores at home and at work.
Occupational therapists that specialize in hand therapy can provide rehabilitation intervention that enables the hand to function well and prevent further injury. OTs can have a huge benefit on the outcome of patients hand, elbow, and shoulder conditions. They can evaluate injuries, analyze home and work environments, fabricate splints, recommend exercise programs, apply techniques to reduce swelling, improve movement, educate patients on safe and independent methods of functioning, and incorporate goals and desires in the treatment program.
