  • Physical therapy is needed if a patient has suffered an injury or illness which has affected motor skills or function. The physical therapy program may consist of evaluation, therapeutic exercises, gait training, adaptive equipment recommendations, massage, heat cold or electrical treatments, all geared toward helping the patient attain his/her maximum functional motor potential. Customized exercises may include stretching and strengthening, manual therapy such as soft tissue mobilization, massage, and specialized manual technique

Their goal is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives.
  • OT and OTA visits - Occupational therapists and therapy assistants will instruct clients in performing activities of all types within their home, ranging from using a computer to caring for daily needs such as dressing, cooking, and eating. Physical exercises may be used to increase strength and dexterity, while other activities may be chosen to improve visual acuity and the ability to discern patterns. Therapists also use computer programs to help clients improve decision making, abstract reasoning, problem-solving, and perceptual skills, as well as memory, sequencing, and coordination.
