Occupational Therapist in 10023
The professional roles of the occupational and physical therapist are similar. Both are concerned with the development of physical skills, activities of daily living, and environmental adaptations. In its simplest terms, our 10023 occupational therapists help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities and occupations. At Bradley & Monson Physical Therapy, we offer many occupational therapy services that will be catered to your individual needs as well as accept many insurance plans, including Medicare.
Occupational therapy focuses primarily on enhancing fine motor skills, hand function, hand-eye coordination, and sensory dysfunction. Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Many of our patients who are post-hand surgery, for example, prefer the occupational therapy program. This program promotes functional motor development, self-help skills related to the educational setting, mobility skills, positioning for function, health and safety, adapted equipment, as well as other needs when appropriate. Our f that accept Medicare will conduct an individualized evaluation during which the client/family and occupational therapist will determine the person’s goals. This includes a customized intervention plan to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach their goals, as well as an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met.
Occupational therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the client’s home and other environments, recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers. Our 10023 occupational therapists that accept Medicare have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team.
