Occupational Therapy

Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation

Occupational Therapy is concerned with an individual's ability to independently perform activities of daily living, complete job related duties and enjoy leisure activities. An occupational therapist will perform a functional evaluation in order to determine strengths and areas requiring specific interventions. Based on the results of the evaluation and the goals of the patient, the occupational therapist will develop a treatment plan tailored to maximize the patient's ability to function independently. Occupational therapy professionals are concerned with mental, social, and environmental barriers that impede a patient's independence. 

Occupational therapy interventions may help individuals experiencing impairment as a result of: 

  • Strokes 
  • Orthopedic injuries 
  • Amputations
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Hand trauma or injury 
  • Developmental disabilities
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Arthritis, degenerative joint disease 
  • Traumatic brain injury 
  • Spinal cord injury 
  • Parkinson's disease 
  • Shoulder disorders 

The goal at VHS is to deliver quality occupational therapy services so our patients may return to safety living their lives as quickly as possible.
