Occupational Therapy Services
Occupational Therapy works to find solutions for the problems that interfere with your ability to do the things that are important to you. Your “job of living” includes everything you do to occupy yourself, including taking care of yourself and your family, leisure activities, hobbies and work. When an injury, illness, disability or other problem limits your ability to live your life, an Occupational Therapist can assist with learning new skills, providing devices and developing a plan to return to these activities.
Our Occupational Therapy Services include:
Assistive Technology Assessments
Providing technology solutions to make learning and working environments more accessible and usable for people with disabilities. Examples include improving computer access for adults or kids, communication aids, or rehabilitative devices.
Customized fabricated splinting for the hand or specific joints to facilitate the healing process. Examples include resting hand splints, thumb spica splints, and static progressive splints to mobilize joints.
When assessing Activities of Daily Living (ADL’S), we look at the level of function or level of assistance the individual needs to perform their activities.
Universal design is an approach to the design of all products and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability, or situation. We assist in designing barrier-free environments so that it is specific to your needs.
For those on the go, a vehicle assessment is useful to ensure your posture and settings are appropriate from an ergonomic perspective.
A functional abilities evaluation can accurately assess an individual’s safe ability to perform material handling (i.e.lift, carry, push, pull) and postural activities.
Return to Work Planning and Job Shadowing
Our experience in the functional rehabilitation setting allows us to assist with developing gradual progressions of hours and duties when an injured worker is returning to regular or modified job duties. This ensures an efficient transition back into the workplace.
