Occupational Therapy – New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, New York – Ivy Rehab

Occupational Therapy

Everyday movements can be excruciating when you’re suffering from hand pain, wrist pain, or elbow pain. Even simple actions like lifting a fork, moving a computer mouse, or picking up a book can become daunting. Because you use your upper extremities for virtually everything you do, the ligaments, tendons, and nerves are highly susceptible to inflammation, impingement, and repetitive stress injuries.

How occupational therapy can help

Occupational therapy can help you reduce the pain you’re feeling while doing everyday activities. This can involve helping you recover from an injury, assisting with cognitive changes that happen as we age, or even helping children with disabilities do the things other kids are doing.

Occupational therapy can treat conditions such as:

  • Developmental delays
  • Hand injuries or conditions
  • Muscle, joint and bone problems
  • Neurological problems
  • Stroke
  • Flexor/extensor tendon repairs
  • De Quervain’s tendonitis
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Post-op or non-op fracture stabilization
  • Thumb arthritis

Occupational therapists at the Ivy Rehab Network offer a wide range of services including assessments of cognitive abilities including thinking, reasoning, and judgment, lessons for creating home exercise programs, and providing specialized programs for industrial rehabilitation and work-related issues.
