Occupational therapy may be helpful in preventing the following:

Our network providers will assess the areas of difficulty with every patient individually. From there, they will formulate a plan to address those areas of difficulty. Occupational therapists will condense every day tasks or work related tasks into simple movements. They will emphasize technique, movement, posture, and position. They will take patients through each stage in order to help them feel comfortable and independent.

A facet of occupation therapy could include making your environment accessible and inclusive. This could consist of changes to your home or workplace in order to better suit your needs. These changes could include:

  • Ramps, so the area can be accessed by a wheelchair
  • A stairlift
  • Grab rails by the stairs or beside the bed
