Occupational therapy helps adults and children reach their highest possible level of function and independence in daily life through therapeutic exercise, activity, self-care tasks, education and assistive devices, and adaptive equipment / techniques.
We treat adults with a wide variety of diagnoses including; stroke (CVA), Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, orthopedic injuries and various hand conditions.
Our occupational therapists work to improve function of the arms and hands by increasing range of motion, strength, and coordination to help people with daily living activities, including self care, home management, functional mobility, work skills, leisure activities and sports. When needed, our therapists also address cognitive and visual/perceptual deficits associated with some conditions. We can also provide custom splints for various orthopedic and neurological conditions.
We also provide comprehensive clinical driving evaluations, including assessment of the following areas:
- Vision: acuity, visual motor skills, peripheral vision, sign recognition, color recognition/perception, visual processing speed, phoria and fusion
- Perception: figure ground, visual closure, form constancy, spatial relations and depth perception
- Cognition: memory, attention and problem solving
- Reaction time
Following the driving evaluation we provide necessary treatment and make appropriate recommendations to facilitate return to safe driving.
