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

The occupational therapists/certified hand therapists at MacNeal begin by evaluating your individual needs to:

  • 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

MacNeal is here to help if you or a family member needs treatment for:

  • Post-surgical conditions (orthopedic and neurological)
  • Orthopedic conditions like post-casting, wrist/hand pain, tendonitis, arthritis
  • Neurological conditions including stroke
  • Post-trauma/injury conditions
  • Work related injuries
