Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy facilitates the patient’s ability to perform functional activities while conserving energy and protecting painful joints. These services may include, but are not limited to, splinting, self care training, exercise and instruction on the use of adaptive equipment. We customize treatment programs aimed at improving our patient’s ability to carry out activities of daily living. Our goal is to assist our patients in achieving their greatest level of independence so they may lead productive and satisfying lives. Some conditions for which occupational therapy is warranted include the following:

  • Pain (wrist, hands, fingers)
  • Joint Replacement
  • COPD
  • CHF
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Developmental Delays
  • Stroke
  • Head Trauma
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
  • Post-Mastectomy

Many other diagnoses exist for which occupational therapy treatment is appropriate and beneficial. Please, contact our department to speak with a therapist about any questions or concerns related to you or your loves one’s therapy needs at 618-283-5548.
