What can occupational therapy do for me?
Occupational therapy is more than just addressing an injury. At ReQuest Physical Therapy in Gainesville, FL, our occupational therapist is a certified hand therapist that will focus on your functional needs by implementing certain exercises and activities that promote physical and psychological well-being.
Hand therapy is a form of treatment that is deeply rooted in science and supported by numerous medical journals. Our Gainesville, FL occupational therapists work hard to help you recover from injuries and regain functional skills. Hand therapy can benefit all ages, from helping children to adults. At ReQuest Physical Therapy our Occupational Therapist helps you with any hand, wrist, or arm injuries that you may have. She also specializes in upper extremity lymphedema.
At ReQuest Physical Therapy, our occupational therapy plans include:
- An individual evaluation to determine patient goals.
- Customized intervention activities to improve daily tasks and activities for the patient.
- An evaluation of outcomes to determine if goals were met and to make changes to the plan if needed.
What’s the difference between physical therapy and occupational therapy?
While occupational therapy is similar to physical therapy, there are a few distinct differences. Physical therapy focuses on your ability to perform certain movements overall, while occupational therapy focuses on your ability to perform certain movements during daily activities. At ReQuest we focus on those daily activities involving the arm and hand.
For example, if you have suffered a stroke, a physical therapist will work to build back muscle strength, while an occupational therapist will work with you to practice basic skills like grabbing and moving.
Both the physical therapists and our occupation therapist work hand in hand to make sure you get the treatment you deserve.
