Occupational therapy is designed to help people recover the skills needed to safely perform the activities of daily living.
Bacharach’s occupational therapy team specializes in restoring function for everyday tasks: dressing, eating, working, driving and more. After accident or illness, or due to debility, the activities of daily living may become overwhelming. Through strengthening, exercise, practice and training, people learn to perform the activities of daily living safely and regain their independence.
Occupational therapists address home modifications, equipment solutions, assistive devices and other approaches to ensure safety and independence in the home.
Occupational therapy can help regain or improve function after stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurological injury or concussion.
In the case of brain injury, stroke, concussion and similar disorders, occupational therapy may include cognitive therapy to help with memory issues, word-finding and expression.
Occupational therapy can also help build strength and function for conditions such as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, frozen shoulder, hand injuries, fractures and other conditions of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand.
Occupational therapists use manual therapies, kinesiotaping, stretching and splinting, parafin, modalties and a host of other approaches to improve function, mobility and safety.
