The licensed occupational therapists at NJ Spine and Wellness help patients gain independence and maximize their quality of life through the therapeutic practice of everyday activities.
If you experience pain, an injury, illness, or disability that interferes with your ability to perform daily tasks, occupational therapy may teach you how to adapt. It may also help improve your performance at your job, school, or home.
Common occupational therapy interventions we specialize in include:
- Helping people recovering from injury or stroke regain skills
- Providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes
- Helping children with disabilities participate in daily activities
Our occupational therapists work with stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis patients on a range of motion, strengthening, and visual perceptual training. The goal is to improve patient independence so they can perform their daily tasks.
An occupational therapist can help with common hand injuries such as arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger, lateral/medial epicondylitis, finger fractures, Dupuytren’s contracture, and distal radius fracture.
A splint may be needed after an injury, surgery, or for those with conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s used to support, immobilize or protect the arm or hand. Occupational therapists can make custom splints for patients if needed or will use pre-fabricated splints.
Occupational therapy can help improve motor, cognitive, sensory processing, communication, and play skills for children with developmental delays. The goal is to enhance their development, minimize the potential for developmental delay, and help families meet the special needs of their infants and toddlers.
Spinal injury rehabilitation varies by patient, but occupational therapists can help reduce barriers, gain independence and facilitate rehabilitation.
An occupational therapist can assess the areas of functional difficulty and help patients in these areas. Customized treatment plans ensure that patients gain independence in all areas of their daily life.
