Occupational therapy effectively treats individuals with a wide variety of neurological impairments to help them return to functional and meaningful daily living. These impairments may be a result of a brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury or other neurological deficit. Effective, research-based treatments include:
- Neuromuscular re-education and facilitation to improve the coordination, strength, and function of one’s upper extremity.
- Remediation and compensation of visual-motor and visual inattention deficits.
- Cognitive rehabilitation to improve attention, memory, and problem solving to facilitate returning to home, work, school and community.
Occupational therapists at the Neuro Specialty Program also provide the following assessment services:
- Wheelchair evaluations
- Bioness H200 evaluations
