Inpatient Acute Care, Sub-acute Rehab and Outpatient Care
Occupational therapy involves the evaluation, assessment, and treatment of upper body dysfunctions caused by medical disorders and injuries/trauma. Your quality of life is enhanced by addressing activities of daily living (ADLs) and by promoting your independence and well-being.
The Evaluation Process

- Identify your limitations in range of motion, strength, and balance
- Assess your deficits in ADLs
- Assess your need for adaptive equipment or a brace/splint
- Educate you and your family on your condition
- Create your plan of care
