Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists specialize in rehabilitation techniques that promote the return to Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). What exactly are ADLs? Think about everything you do in the course of a day, starting with getting out of bed. THOSE are ADLs. From getting out of bed in the morning to getting back in bed in the evening and everything in between, people suffering from a debilitating injury or illness may need Occupational Therapy to:

  • Relearn techniques to accomplish those tasks independently
  • Learn to use specialized equipment to perform ADLs independently
  • Learn to reuse or strengthen muscle groups
  • Implement home modifications for safety or to make a task easier
  • Learn how to make decisions to accommodate the limitations they may be experiencing
  • Learn to regain and maintain their functional independence
