Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps people do the everyday things that are important to them like getting dressed, eating with a fork or spoon, going to work or the store, gardening, doing sports or other leisure activities. Occupational therapists (also known as OTs) are specially trained health care professionals who work at HHCC to help our patients overcome or learn to manage problems that interfere with their ability to function in daily life because of an illness or injury. 

Our team of OTs work with the other members of your health care team to assess and develop a treatment plan that is right for you. Specifically, they can help with:
  • Physical function
  • Sensory retraining
  • Activities of daily living
  • Perceptual and cognitive functions
  • Adjustments needed to return to work
  • Emotional adjustment
  • Splinting and equipment prescription (such as for wheelchairs)
