Occupational Therapy New Jersey
If you are recovering from an injury, illness, or surgery, if you have physical disabilities, developmental challenges, or are becoming frustrated by the effects that aging is having on your body, you could potentially benefit from occupational therapy New Jersey residents rely on. The dedicated team at Northeast Spine & Wellness Center prides itself on providing client-focused occupational services. While some facilities focus on treating as many patients as possible, our team focuses on treating each patient with the care that they need and deserve, regardless of the time or resources it takes to achieve that goal.
What Is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy engages a variety of different approaches in order to assist individuals who are struggling with tasks that inform their daily living. Like physical therapists, occupational therapists often help patients achieve greater ranges of motion and physical stability. However, occupational therapists also frequently assist with challenges that limit a patient’s quality of life. For example, if – after having a stroke – a patient is struggling to feed themselves, we can help with that. If – after a car accident – an injury victim is struggling to dress themselves, we can help with that.
What Does Occupational Therapy Entail?
Because the primary goals of occupational therapy are to help patients safely engage in everyday tasks and to maximize their independence, the various techniques that our OT specialists utilize focus on these goals. Depending on your unique needs and circumstances, we’ll personalize a treatment plan on your behalf. For example, we may teach you various strategies for managing everyday activities successfully via modification or provide you with exercises to mitigate limitations caused by pain or a lack of flexibility.
Who Can Benefit from Occupational Therapy?
Physical therapy can help virtually anyone to maximize the effectiveness of the body’s movements and to assist those who need to gain or regain strength and range of motion. New Jersey occupational therapy services are more targeted than general physical therapy services are. Meaning, while virtually anyone can benefit from physical therapy, occupational therapy services are most effectively reserved for those individuals who are struggling with tasks associated with daily living.
Some occupational therapy patients benefit from these services due to chronic injuries, illnesses, or medical conditions. Others benefit from these services after experiencing the physical trauma of surgery, an accident, a stroke, a heart attack, or an illness like Covid-19.
If you are unsure of whether you could benefit from occupational therapy, that’s okay. Connect with the knowledgeable team at Northeast Spine & Wellness Center to let us know how you’re struggling and why. We’re not in the business of “selling” our services, so we’ll never recommend that you participate in occupational therapy if this treatment approach isn’t right for you at this time.
