Occupational Therapy

With services tailored to individual needs of of both inpatients and outpatients, our partnership with Synertx allows us to offer innovative programs by a professional occupational therapist.

Occupational therapy is the use of purposeful activities to restore and maximize independence, prevent associated disability and maintain health. Procedures include the use of specific activities to improve or restore function (such as bathing, grooming and toileting), to compensate for dysfunction, or to minimize disability.

OT provides experience and practice with actual tasks to enable patients to participate to the fullest extent possible in activities in their daily living environment. According to the American Occupational Therapy Association, adults with the following health issues may benefit from occupational therapy.

Work-related injuries including lower back problems or repetitive stress injuries
