The goal of rehabilitation is to make daily tasks and activities manageable again. Whether it is walking, going up stairs, using utensils or getting dressed, it is the goal of physical and occupational therapists to improve your quality of life by making even the simplest tasks easier.
Physical Therapy (PT)
After receiving information from your physician, a physical therapist will meet with you to make an individualized treatment plan. Using a variety of techniques, the therapist will work with you to achieve flexibility, strength, endurance, balance and coordination. Some of the more common techniques used include exercising, strength training and applying hot/cold packs. Another effective technique is electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), which uses electric impulses to stimulate muscle contraction. With continued patient and therapist interaction, physical therapy will help restore movement, improve functionality and achieve overall health and wellness.
Occupational Therapy (OT)
Occupational therapy is a rehabilitative process that works on restoring mobility, flexibility and strength in your upper extremity. The ultimate goal of an occupational therapist is to help patients participate in the activities of everyday life while achieving as much independence as possible. Strengthening and flexibility techniques are applied to activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, dressing, eating, cooking and cleaning. The occupational therapist will evaluate each patient and provide an individualized treatment plan that will work towards achieving patient success.
A hand therapist works with a patient to rehabilitate the upper limb which includes the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. Hand therapists provide specialized therapeutic treatments to restore functionality in order for a patient to fully function in everyday life activities. Such therapy is performed by a provider with a high degree of specialization that requires continuing education and, often, advanced certification. The hand therapist will evaluate each patient and provide an individualized treatment plan that will work towards achieving patient success.
