Hand Therapy

The goal of hand therapy is to rehabilitate the injured or post-surgical hand. Hand therapy also specializes in prevention of cumulative trauma injuries and deformities caused by arthritis. Services available include custom splinting for all hand surgeries and injuries.

Lymphedema Program

Lymphedema is a chronic condition where limbs and other body parts become swollen and often impede a person’s independence. Lymphedema is associated with the lymph nodes and the nodes inability to function at an optimal level, thus causing increased fluid retention. Lymphedema often occurs as a result of birth abnormalities, cancers, and surgeries. Lymphedema management includes specialized treatment by a certified therapist, who will effectively decongest the swollen tissues and assist to restore confidence and functional independence in daily activities.

 Activities of Daily Living

Our department is equipped with an ADL (activities of daily living) room to assist with your return to functional independence. It offers a comprehensive evaluation of activities of daily living and can provide training to improve safety and optimize independence at home or in the work place.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy 

Pediatric Occupational Therapy focuses on children ages birth through 21 years old, through the therapeutic use of self and play to promote independence within that child’s environments. Therapy focuses on a variety of diagnoses and problem areas, including delay in development, sensory processing skills, autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, fine motor delay, handwriting difficulties, and adaptive skills, such as feeding and dressing. Skilled occupational therapy works with children and their families to promote and gain functional skills for an independent and productive future.
