Occupational therapists assess and treat the whole person physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially. If everyday function is complicated by disease, illness or trauma, we assist you in returning to optimal functioning.
For many people, everyday living is complicated by disease, aging, disability, illness or trauma. Occupational therapy provides people with skills they need to overcome disabling conditions.
Occupation refers to activities that are meaningful to an individual, within the environment the person lives and functions. The three areas of occupation are self-care, work and leisure. Occupational therapy begins with a comprehensive evaluation to determine a current level of occupational functioning. Treatment plans address dysfunction due to delayed development, environmental concerns and deficits in movement, sensation, cognition and emotional components of performance. Treatment focuses on adapting tasks and the environment to maximize independence and improve quality of life.

Industrial rehabilitation specialists work with business and industry to provide safe work environments for employees. If injury occurs, we work with the employer and employee to ensure an efficient and safe transition back into the work force.
Functional Capacity Evaluation

An FCE facilitates the return to work process by identifying the abilities and limitations of an injured worker. By using internationally recognized methods of evaluation, the FCE provides a comprehensive and effective approach to work injury management that meets the needs of the individual, employer, physician and others.
