Occupational Therapy: Our Approach
While life’s most mundane tasks become a true challenge in the aftermath
of a life-altering injury or disease, the smallest accomplishments can
be a tremendous victory during the course of recovery.
The team at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital takes a creative approach
in teaching endurance, agility and energy conservation techniques. Every
patient receives a comprehensive evaluation to analyze the specific
challenges they might encounter upon discharge. In occupational therapy,
patients may receive any of the following services:
custom splinting and casting
cognitive, perceptual and motor training
functional vision retraining
home exercise programs
energy conservation and joint protection techniques
Durable Medical Equipment (DME) usage training
Patients who require occupational therapy can be of any age, but are
typically recovering from debilitating injuries or conditions like stroke,
brain injury, concussion,
arthritis, burns or amputations.
How long they require therapeutic assistance—both at the inpatient and
outpatient level—is dependent on individual patient needs.
Outpatient occupational therapy is offered at the several convenient
locations throughout the Philadelphia area.
