Orthopedic Occupational Therapy Experts in Torrington and Bristol

A therapist specializing in occupational therapy has clinical experience focused on restoring functional strength for activities of daily living (or ADLs). An occupational therapist (or OT) uses their skills to help patients with various injuries, medical conditions, and disabilities learn self-care and gain greater independence. Orthopedic occupational therapy involves the evaluation of your functional strength, abilities, and areas in need of improvement, especially in the upper extremity.

Our occupational therapists understand that orthopedic conditions and injuries can limit your daily life. Committed to helping you or your child gain independence, our therapy experts use the latest methods and proven science to keep you moving. Our occupational therapists will also help modify any home or work environment and train patients and caregivers in the use of assistive devices, adaptive equipment, and orthotics.

Our occupational therapists offer services for a variety of bone, joint, and muscle needs, diagnoses, and disabilities, including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Neurological impairment
  • Upper extremity trauma
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Specialized hand, wrist, and elbow fabrication
  • Work-related injuries

Our occupational therapists evaluate and develop individualized and occupation-based care plans. These plans are always designed to address the specific needs and treatment goals of our patients. From rehabilitation to skill training and activity modification for everyday living, therapy treatment plans may include various modalities and forms of therapeutic exercise to enhance function and strength. The goal of our therapists is to return our patients to better physical and mental health with pain-free daily living.

Our state-of-the-art occupational therapy department works together to provide patients with individualized nonsurgical and postsurgical rehabilitation programs to help patients restore joint and muscular function, strength, and range of motion. Combining patient education with specific exercises and activities, our occupational therapists help patients increase mobility, enhance posture, improve motor skills, and correct body mechanics.
