Being unable to complete daily tasks can be frustrating and discouraging, especially following an injury, illness or surgery. Occupational therapists at Mills-Peninsula work with you to develop, restore or maintain the skills you need to regain independence.
Occupational therapy is useful for people who have neurological deficits, but can also benefit people with severe upper extremity injuries, memory and cognitive decline or those seeking assistance with the activities of daily living due to pain or joint dysfunction.
Highly-trained occupational therapists provide training for daily activities such as dressing, bathing, writing or cooking. We create personalized goals for improving your fine motor skills and strengthening and improving the function of your arms, forearms and hands. Additionally, if needed, your occupational therapist can help you learn how to use adaptive devices to help you complete necessary tasks.
We also provide splinting, range of motion exercises, wheelchair fittings and office ergonomics consultations.
