Occupational Therapy

Our skilled Occupational Therapy (OT) professionals specialize in providing individually-designed treatment to inpatients and outpatients to help carry out self care (such as bathing, eating, dressing), homemaking, work and leisure activities.

Occupational therapists use goal-directed activities to help improve physical or cognitive skills, fabricate hand splints and teach the use of assistive devices in order to be more self sufficient. OT is often recommended for people who are experiencing difficulty with any activity due to:

  • Stroke or head injury
  • Hand/arm injury and/or hand surgery
  • Carpal Tunnel syndrome and other cumulative trauma
  • Fractures and joint replacements
  • Arthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's Disease
  • Cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions
  • Multiple trauma injuries
  • Mental health disorders
  • Visual problems, and
  • Many other types of injury, illness or disability

Your OT program is designed for you to help restore lost function and independence. Your therapist will tailor an individualized program that stresses ongoing education and support.

Occupational Therapy requires a physician's prescription.

Our hours are:

  • Monday and Friday 7:00AM to 7:00PM
  • Tuesday and Thursday 7:00AM to 5:00PM
  • Wednesday 2:00 PM to 7:00PM
