The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in activities of everyday life. Whether in a patient’s hospital room or in a Howard Head Sports Medicine clinic, our occupational therapists work to achieve this goal. Outpatient occupational therapists specialize in the rehabilitation of the hand, wrist and elbow. Inpatient occupational therapists often work with patients who have strict precautions following surgery and need to adapt to complete daily activities. Therpists assist patients to increase their independence, often using adaptive equipment to complete tasks such as dressing and bathing. By reducing pain, assisting functional movement through adaptive devices, or ergonomically modifying a patient’s environment, occupational therapists enhance their patients' ability to regain the life they knew before injury.
