Upper Extremity Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapists help patients improve their ability to perform tasks in living and working environments. They work with individuals who suffer from a physically disabling condition. Occupational therapists use treatments to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of their patients. The therapist helps clients not only to improve their basic motor functions, but also to compensate for permanent loss of function. The goal is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives.
