Occupational

Our Occupational Therapy promotes health and independence in everyday life. Our experienced occupational therapists work with patients to customize treatment programs that restore and enhance their ability to develop, recover or maintain the daily skills needed for a healthy life.

By adapting the environment, making modifications, teaching skills or providing education to our patients and their families, we help patients participate and perform daily activities that are meaningful to them.

After reviewing your doctor’s recommendations, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation and develop a unique, individualized treatment plan to meet your specific goals.
