What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a form of treatment that can help children and adults of all ages with pain, injury, illness, or a disability that makes it difficult to do important daily tasks such as schoolwork, a job, household chores, or participate in activities. Essentially, our team helps individuals do the things they want and need.
How Does Occupational Therapy Work?
We’ll start by conducting an individualized skilled evaluation. We will confirm your goals and create a tailored treatment plan for you. We regularly conduct evaluations throughout treatment to ensure the plan is effective and that the goals are being met. Adjustments to treatment or plan are made as needed.
Each individual is unique when it comes to treatment, and ultimately our goal is to ensure you’re able to do the important things to you.
