WCHC's occupational therapists guide patients towards regaining, developing, and increasing independence with activities of daily living. Our therapists work with people of all ages who need specialized assistance in learning or relearning independent skills. Our main goal is to work on decreasing you're pain, increasing both upper extremity active range of motion and strength, and increasing you're independence to be able to perform the functional tasks you were once able to do, but are currently having difficulty performing.
In addition to dealing with an individual's physical well-being, occupational therapy therapists address physical, psychological, social, emotional, and environmental factors impeding independent function. Patients are given home modifications/recommendations to assist them in living a normal life. This unique perspective makes occupational therapy a critically important part of any healthcare program.
