Occupational Therapy

When the simplest things are hard to do

After surgery or trauma, what you once considered the easiest tasks can all of a sudden seem daunting. Beyond the frustration of not being able to live your life, it can also leave you feeling helpless and defeated, even as you try to focus on healing.

The good news is that our rehabilitation specialists can help you regain the many skills you may have lost. Whether you need to learn how to talk again following a car accident, or just need a little help with your writing skills, we’ve got you covered.

Before your therapy

Injuries are unique, and so are the plans to help you get back on your feet. The first step in recovery is a meeting with our therapists to determine the best path for you. This will include:

  • Evaluating where you are physically, from range of motion to balance
  • Looking for deficits in your activities of daily living (ADL)
  • Determining any equipment, like walkers, you may need to go about your daily life, and making arrangements for them

During therapy

Therapy is a mix of mental and physical exercises. These can include:

  • Exercises for improving speaking and writing
  • More robust exercise to build strength and improve mobility
  • Exercises to help with the everyday things like feeding, dressing and using the bathroom
  • Exercises geared towards improving memory, concentration, problem solving, and organization
  • Any training related to your day job, so you can get back to work

After therapy

After working to restore your physical and mental strength, your therapists will provide emotional support and guidance so you can transition back to your everyday life.
