Occupational therapy focuses on the treatment of conditions that limit an individual’s ability to perform the tasks of daily living, work and leisure activities. The goal is to help the patient function as independently as possible through the use of physical treatment techniques as well as therapeutic changes or adaptations to their skills and environment.
Our highly qualified and experienced occupational therapists and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTAs) will guide you in the development or relearning of skills needed to perform the activities of daily living and occupational tasks. Our therapists also offer specialized care for the hand and arm. The therapist will utilize exercises and manual techniques as well as splinting to improve function.
Occupational therapy may be used alone or in combination with physical therapy or other therapies as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation plan. Your therapist will work with the rest of your care team, including your primary care physician, occupational health physicians, surgeons and other specialty care providers.

Ask your physician for a referral to DKH Occupational Therapy services. Patients may be treated as an inpatient, outpatient or in-home depending on the particular needs and treatment plan. During the initial evaluation, your therapist will ask questions relating to the onset and nature of your illness, injury or condition, previous and current functional level, the nature of any past and current medical history, and your goals for treatment. These questions, and others, will enable us to plan and coordinate your treatment for optimal results.
