Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve and maintain independence in all aspects of their lives. From learning how to get around in the kitchen after a stroke or injury to achieving maximum recovery for a joint injury, occupational therapy gives people the “skills for the job of living” and always works to improve your quality of life.
Two specialty services we offer include:
- Hand therapy. Dealing with problems of the fingers, hand, wrist and elbow, hand therapy treatment focuses on increasing muscle flexibility, strengthening and mobilization of joints and tendons. It usually begins within days of the injury or surgery.
- Lymphedema. When a person’s lymphatic vessels are damaged or surgically removed, lyphedema can occur. Lymphedema is the abnormal accumulation of fluid in, most commonly, the arms and legs. Lyphedema is also a common issue among breast cancer survivors, with approximately 5 percent of women experiencing it in their first year and 30 to 40 percent experiencing it during their lifetime. Though lymphedema is incurable, it is readily treatable. We offer a complete decongestive program for lymphedema and venous edema management run by two Certified Lymphedema Management Specialists.
