Occupational Therapy (OT) at Northwest Hospital

Occupational Therapy at Northwest HospitalOur occupational therapy services are designed to help patients get back to carrying out their activities of daily living. This includes any activities related to self-care and tasks performed at work, home, school and in the community. In evaluating patients' abilities, our specialists perform several assessments, including tests that examine how patients interpret information and make decisions, and how those decisions impact their ability to perform everyday tasks. Assessments may also involve looking at strength and movement and their impact on daily function.

The scope of treatment for OT patients may include:

  • Hand therapy
  • Adaptive equipment training
  • Splinting
  • Visual-perceptual training
  • Energy conservation techniques
  • Joint preservation techniques
  • Community reentry activities (such as use of public transportation and money management)
