Occupational therapy can be effective in the treatment of many neurological diagnoses and injuries. Many people with Parkinson’s disease, history of stroke or other neurological deficits can be treated by an occupational therapist and restore function in their daily life. Some of the common treatment for patients with neurological deficits may include:
- Upper extremity muscle re-education and facilitation
- Compensation methods and activities to increase awareness for patients with visual neglect or hemiplegia
- Gross motor and fine motor activities to improve upper extremity strength and coordination
