Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is a medical discipline that can benefit people of all ages.

The primary focus of Occupational Therapy is to enable the activities of daily life including self-care, education, career, and social interactions. Occupational Therapy services cover a variety of specializations such as home and workplace assessments, impairments of the upper extremity (shoulders to hands), pediatrics, and caregiver/family education

Pediatric Occupational Therapy focuses on children in their environment. Play is a tool often used to improve sensory motor skills, allowing children to better receive input from the surroundings. By improving play skills, the child is better suited to improve learning skills. During an occupational therapy session, the therapist will focus on issues dealing with body coordination and the vestibular system, which is responsible for balance and equilibrium.

At Preferred Physical Therapy, we have Occupational Therapists that work with adults as well as Occupational Therapists that focus specifically on children. Additionally, we now have a full-time Certified Hand Therapist on our staff.

My pain was very great when I started therapy. The staff was helped me work through the pain. I am thankful my balance has greatly improved and swelling and pain is almost gone completely. I’m thankful I can walk again. Very positive experience for me.

When I came in for my first visit a few days after my surgery my knee bend was only 85º. Now at my last visit my bend is 115º! I am doing stairs almost normally, it is awesome! I am using my stationary bike at home just like I did before.
