HealthPoint Occupational Therapy
The occupational therapy delivered at HealthPoint aims to help those who have experienced a change in their ability to perform self-care, homemaking, work or leisure tasks due to neurological, orthopedic, or other disease-related issues.
Therapists will identify patient goals following a thorough initial evaluation and work with the patient to develop an intensive, individualized treatment program to meet these goals. Successfully regaining lost skills will provide greater independence and an improved quality of life for our patients and their loved ones.
Our occupational therapy services include:
Whether you are experiencing increased swelling in your extremities as the result of cancer treatment or another condition, our therapists have the skills necessary to help you control and manage the problem.
Our therapists can help with exercises, massotherapy, and wrapping to bring down the swelling. We can fit you with the right type of compression garments and teach proper skin care, as well as additional precautions that can help you quickly resume your normal activities.
Our therapists are skilled in constructing specialized splints, which are vital to the success of rehabilitation after many injuries and surgical treatments. Splints are used to immobilize the area and correct/prevent deformity to ensure proper healing and function.
