Occupational Therapy

In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Occupational therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the client’s home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers.

Work Hardening / Conditioning

Work Hardening - is defined as an individualized, comprehensive and structured program organized to improve function, quality of life, and pain management skills for clients with pain that interferes with vocational, physical, and psychological functioning. The program provides coordinated, outcome-oriented, interdisciplinary team services in an outpatient setting designed to minimize risk and optimize the work capability of the client served.

Work Conditioning - is an individualized and structured rehabilitation program organized to improve function, and quality of life with a goal of return to work. The program primarily consists of physical conditioning and injury prevention and wellness education designed to return the client to his/her previous employment It provides coordinated and outcomes-oriented services in an outpatient setting.

Gait Training

We are able to administer most therapeutic modalities including,
but not limited to, the following:

Ultrasound

Ultrasound - machines are a treatment modality used by physical therapists that utilize high or low frequency sound waves. These sound waves are transmitted to the surrounding tissue and blood vessels. They penetrate the muscles to cause deep tissue/muscle warming. This promotes tissue relaxation and therefore is useful in treating muscle tightness and spasms. The warming effect of the sound waves also causes the blood vessels to dilate and increase circulation to the area that assists in healing. The physical therapist can also adjust the frequency on the machine to use waves that will decrease inflammation.

Electrical Stimulation (E-Stim)

Electrical Stimulation - often abbreviated as E-Stim, uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations the physical therapist can recruit the appropriate muscle fibers. Contracting the muscle via electrical stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscle. The physical therapist can change the current setting to allow for a forceful or gentle muscle contraction. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area that assists in healing.

Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis - is a medical treatment used to deliver medication across the skin to deeper tissues by the use of electrical polarity. The medicine is mixed with an ionized (electrically charged) carrier and pushed into the skin when repelled by an electrode of the same charge on the surface of the skin. Physical therapists occasionally use this mechanism to deliver steroid medication to sites of inflammation, or swelling. It is often referred to as a “needle-less injection”.

Paraffin Bath

Heat / Cold Therapy

TENS unit instruction - A TENS unit stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. It is a small battery operated machine that uses electrical transmission to decrease pain. Electrodes are applied to the affected area. The machine is turned on and an electrical current is sent through the electrodes. A tingling sensation is felt in the underlying skin and muscle. This signal disrupts the pain signal that is being sent from the affected area to the surrounding nerves. By breaking this signal, the patient experiences less pain.

Prosthetic / Orthotic Training

Neuromuscular Reeducation
