HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital is committed to assisting community members and their families in their goals to get back to family, work and life following an injury or illness with Occupational Therapy.
Occupational therapy is designed to help patients gain independence in their everyday lives following an illness or injury. This therapy focuses on restoration of self-care skills such as dressing, bathing, cleaning and grooming and also helps with memory and problem-solving skills related to these everyday activities.
Occupational therapy also treats the upper extremity/hand after trauma, cumulative injury, fractures, and pain onset. Treatment may include pain management, joint movement, strengthening, splinting, home exercise program, or work/ home adaptations to prevent further injury.
