Occupational therapy is a hands-on profession that helps people across their lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapists enable people of all ages to live life to their fullest by helping them promote health and prevent or live better with injury, illness, or disability. The occupational therapy in North Bergen team provides an individualized evaluation and assessment of each patient’s condition and health goals. After a careful analysis, they customize a program to improve the patient’s ability to perform daily activities and reach those goals. They also provide an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or makes appropriate adjustments to the intervention plan. Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science.
The occupational therapy in North Bergen uses many modalities to achieve success for a wide spectrum of physical conditions. These may include therapeutic activities, therapeutic exercises, scar management, pain management, work conditioning or hardening using real or simulated work activities to restore function, custom orthotic (splint) design, fabrication and fitting, joint protection or energy modification training in adaptive and assistive devices, patient education for post-surgical safety, sensory re-education after a stroke or neurological injury, physical agent modalities, and wound care. Partnering with each patient on a personal level makes the occupational services even more effective. If you are looking for a dedicated occupational therapist, give us a call today.
