Occupational therapists work with individuals, families and groups to facilitate health and well being through engagement or re-engagement in occupations. The occupational therapist’s role is to increase the patient’s level of function by teaching and incorporating the skills necessary to enable the patient to regain and maintain a physical and psychological sense of well being to resume a satisfying, productive life — vocationally, socially and recreationally.
Occupational therapy treats most musculoskeletal issues affecting the upper extremities, as well as addressing deficits in ability to perform activities of daily living so patients are able to actively engage physically in all aspects of their lives. At Synovation Medical Group, we establish a specific treatment plan to enable our patients to reach their long-term goals of returning to functional role performance, achieving a balance of work/rest and pain reduction. Patients actively participate in goal and treatment planning with our multidisciplinary team.
