Occupational Therapy

The goal of occupational therapy is to help individuals with injuries or disabilities regain independence and self-sufficiency in performing daily living skills, such as eating, dressing, and working. Occupational therapy provides individualized rehabilitative treatment, as well as assistive devices and durable medical equipment evaluations. Patients and families are instructed in proper and safe use of appropriate equipment in order to improve safety and independence.


Our occupational therapy has established treatment regimes for:

  • Hand injuries
  • Upper extremity orthopedic or neurological conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Head injuries
  • Debilitating conditions
  • Developmental delays
  • Pulmonary diagnoses
  • Joint replacements
  • Neurological or other debilitating illnesses or injuries

Certified Hand Therapy

We offer specialized care of upper extremity injuries, from neurological to orthopedic treatment for various conditions. We can treat extreme conditions such as degloving and hand mutilation, as well as acute carpal tunnel syndrome. Treatment options can include custom functional bracing/splinting to support to an injured area, as well as facilitating modified arm/hand use to a non-useable extremity. Our focus is to assist patients in returning to pain controlled strength, mobility and function to an upper extremity injury or disability.


Potential treatment areas can include:

  • Before and after orthopedic surgery
  • Trauma patients
  • ORIF
