Occupational Physical Therapy Services

What is occupational therapy?

You may need to have to go in for occupational therapy if you have been injured or have a chronic condition that affects your ability to complete daily activities. Your occupational therapist can not only treat your physical body, but your motor skills, emotions, and quality of life as well. At Evolve, our team can help you reach all your daily living goals with our specialized occupational therapy services.

How can an occupational therapist help you?

Every occupational therapy plan will start with an evaluation of your health history, recent injuries, as well as what activities you need help with to perform your normal daily routines. We will use this information and work with you to create your individual occupational therapy treatment plan. An occupational therapist can also help you with the following: 

  • Education on how to prevent injuries

  • We can educate you on your individual healing and treatment process

  • Train and educate you on how to complete daily activities correctly.

  • We can also teach you how to modify and adjust daily living activities to be more comfortable and ergonomically correct.
