Occupational therapy focuses on a patient’s ability to perform daily living skills. These skills are called Activities of Daily Living, or ADLs.
ADLs include activities such as:
- Meal preparation
We work with patients to return to their previous levels of daily living, or assist them in adapting as needed to maximize independence.
- Neurological rehabilitation for strokes, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries and others.
- Upper extremity splinting for both neurological as well as post-operative conditions.
- Home safety evaluations.
- Joint protection strategies for those suffering from arthritis.
- Energy conservation techniques.
