Occupational therapy is treatment to gain or restore function and help people live as independently as possible. If you have an acute or chronic illness, injury or disability, our occupational therapists will design an individual therapy program focused on restoring function and preventing recurrence of problems, so you can enjoy life to the fullest. Therapy sessions are one-on-one to promote the specialized treatment program for each person.
- Improving hand, arm and upper body range of motion, as well as coordination, strength, mobility and activity tolerance.
- Restoring function after surgery, injury, illness, repetitive motion problems or age-related changes.
- Instruction to conserve physical energy and simplify work and body mechanics for those with limited endurance.
- Increasing independence in daily activities to safely perform self-care, leisure or work tasks.
- Education in adaptive equipment and modifications in order to increase independence to safely perform self-care, leisure or work tasks.
- Fabrication of custom static orthotics (splinting) or recommendation of appropriate bracing for the hand and arm.
The rehabilitation center is conveniently located on the first floor of Cass Regional, near the hospital's main entrance, in an attractive and welcoming setting.
