Occupational therapists focus on helping patients to recover, improve or maintain the skills that are needed for everyday living. Occupational therapy teaches patients to incorporate skills necessary to regain and maintain a physical and psychological sense to resume a satisfying, productive life — vocationally, socially and recreationally.

Our occupational therapists work with individual patients, their families, and with patient groups to focus on musculoskeletal issues affecting the upper extremities and smaller muscle groups to address deficits in ability to perform activities of daily living so patients can maintain independence. Examples are grip and hand strength, writing ability, and physical capability for daily hygiene and routines.
