Occupational Therapy

Get Back to Living Life to the Fullest

Rehabilitation programs are a common necessity for people who have recently suffered a serious illness or injury. Once you have completed the acute care phase of your treatment, you may find you still have difficulty performing various activities. This is where occupational therapy comes in.

Different from physical therapy, occupational therapy is focused on helping patients regain function so that they can perform specific tasks that are essential to their day to day lives. If your condition has made it difficult for you to return to work or perform daily household functions, you occupational therapist will create a customized program designed to help you overcome these obstacles.
