Occupational Therapy

Partners in Rehab AthletiCare

Occupational therapy is often used in the rehabilitation of patients suffering from spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, stroke, or mental illness.

Occupational therapy improves the ability to function and to perform skills required for self-care, work and leisure.

Therapy will also allow a patient the opportunity to learn how to adjust activities when appropriate, and for patients with permanent disabilities, may include instruction in using adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs.


The occupational therapy neurological program features simulated home activities including a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Emphasis is on patient and family education for carryover in the home environment.

Our treatment programs target:

  • Restoration of life skills and return to work
  • Assessment of appropriate adaptive equipment (raised toilet seats, tub seats, etc.)
  • Energy conservation / joint protection
  • Increasing strength and active range of motion
