Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps individuals recover and improve their daily living skills, work skills and leisure activities in order to be self-sufficient following surgery, injury or illness. An occupational therapy program can include hand rehabilitation; upper extremity treatment to improve range of motion, coordination and strength; visual, perceptual and cognitive skills; and activities of daily living such as dressing and cooking. Occupational therapists also can assist in obtaining customized orthotic devices and splints and assist in ensuring the home environment is accessible upon discharge.
