Project Description

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a diverse field of practice that services individuals of all ages who are experiencing physical, mental, and/or developmental disabilities. An Occupational Therapist (OT) works to rehabilitate patients to independently return to their occupations of everyday life. OTs assess and provide client-based treatment to minimize or eliminate functional barriers experienced during activities of daily living (ADLs), work demands, leisure, social participation, and play. OTs are also trained in wheelchair seating, home safety assessments/ setup, workstation assessments/ setup, and fabrication of orthotics.

Pro Staff’s OTs specialize in evaluating and treating upper extremity injuries and post-operative conditions to the shoulder, upper arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, hand, and digits.

Hand Therapy

Hands are an essential part of the body that many of us rely on for work, performing daily tasks, and living a generally comfortable quality of life. After suffering an injury, a physical dysfunction may occur in the hands. Pro Staff hand therapists will work with you to develop a completely customized treatment plan. Through a proprietary set of exercises designed to treat your specific condition, the goal is to replace the dysfunction with functional movement to help you rehab to better health.
