Our program offers physical therapy for both neurological and orthopedic patients and occupational therapy including hand therapy. Once a patient begins therapy, a member of our skilled staff gives each patient a thorough evaluation then hands-on, one-on-one treatment to create the most efficient service.
When it comes to occupational or physical rehabilitation, patient education is a vital part of the process. Staff members take the time with every rehabilitation services patient to describe their injury and the strategy designed to improve their condition.
The partner-therapist partnership is essential to each patients’ success. Therapists teach problem-solving techniques, give excercise programs, teach patients how to prevent and control their symptoms and ultimately assist each client in the healing process.
Occupational Therapy is often prescribed when a patient needs creative activity to promote recovery or rehabilitation following an accident or surgery involving broken bones or injuries to muscles. Here at Ascension Seton Southwest, one of our specialties is hand therapy.
