Occupational Health and Worker's Compensation

Our occupational therapists are specialists in work-related injuries and support the philosophy of rapid return to the workplace with or without restricted duty. Beginning with the initial evaluation and continuing through the individualized treatment program, we work with each patient to recover from injury and regain skills for work-related tasks.

Neurological rehabilitation

A stroke, brain injury, tumor, or degenerative neurological condition can significantly impact the ability to plan and perform activities of daily living (i.e. dressing, feeding, bathing, tying shoes, etc.). A stroke can also cause a person to be able to see objects only in certain parts of his or her field of vision.

Our occupational therapists can help with upper body coordination, strength and fine motor skills to improve daily functioning. They also perform cognitive re-training in relation to home management activities, driving and returning to work safely.
