Occupational Therapy

A return to the occupation of daily living

Occupational Therapy

As we go through our daily routine, we’re occupied by many tasks: we shower, work, shop, cook, drive our car, solve problems, and much more. These “occupations” don’t just keep us busy, they help us stay healthy. They give our lives meaning and structure, and provide a sense of well-being.

That’s why, at Huggins Hospital, our occupational therapists help you return to the tasks of daily life. We have exercises that increase strength and dexterity, and we offer adaptive equipment training to help with bathing, dressing, and mobility. We can help with many different health issues, including:

  • Work-related injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Limitations caused by a stroke
  • Chronic conditions like arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, and fibromyalgia
  • Learning problems and developmental disabilities
  • Injuries, including spinal cord injuries, amputations, and broken bones
  • Vision or cognitive problems that threaten the ability to drive
