In addition to being an OT, I specialize in hand therapy/upper extremity rehab. I am a specialist with hand, wrist, forearm, elbow,, shoulder, and neck injuries. I will provide you with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to return you to your prior level of function and alleviate your pain.
Back & Lower Extremity Rehab
As an OT, I can also treat your lower back pain, hip, knee, and ankle pain. I will provide you with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to return you to your prior level of function and alleviate your pain.
Custom Orthotic Fabrication/Kinesiotaping
You might require custom orthotics or splints to help you decrease your pain/discomfort while performing your daily activities. Your physician may also want you in a custom orthosis to allow your joint to heal properly. In addition, to fabricating custom orthosis, you may also benefit from kinesiotaping to alleviate your pain, swelling, and improve your performance with everyday activities while not limiting your movement!
Manual Therapy/Graston Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
Often our joints and soft tissue structures become stiff either through injury or not using them. I will use various manual therapy techniques such as joint mobilization, stretching, isometric techniques, and IASTM to reach the root of your problem and improve your pain.
Falls are one of the leading cause of injury and death among older adults. If you have fallen over the last few months then you may benefit from OT. to identify and implement home modification strategies to prevent falls at home. Furthermore, OT can help strengthen your lower extremities, improve your balance, and implement cognitive and sensory strategies to prevent falls.
Stroke is a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. Stroke survivors may have changes in their physical, cognitive, and emotional abilities that prevent them from independently performing their daily living tasks. OT can help stroke survivors return to independently performing their daily living tasks through: 1. Further retraining in self-care skills.
2. Addressing ongoing deficits such as weakness, sensory loss, and cognitive or visual impairments that limit engagement in meaningful occupations.
3. Training in community reintegration.
4. Developing coping strategies to support psychosocial health and well-being.
