Occupational Therapists conduct routine examinations to measure each patients' balance, posture and muscle performance as well as review and understand their medical history. Once exam is completed, a customized rehabilitation and treatment plan is developed to increase strength and lessen pain. Treatment plans often include different exercises and stretches, as well as hands-on therapies and machines to assist with improving muscle strength, range of motion and motor function. In addition, our Therapists will provide documentation of patient prognosis, treatment goals, responses, education on treatments and techniques to benefit patient and establish channels of communication with Nursing Staff.
