If you have experienced an injury or developed a chronic condition that interrupts your daily life, you may be looking for rehabilitation. Occupational therapy for adults and children includes a holistic approach to treat the entire body and help you reclaim the necessary skills. At Post Acute Medical, we provide inpatient and outpatient occupational therapy to identify effective treatment plans and help you return to the activities you love.
What Are the Goals of Occupational Therapy?
The primary goal of occupational therapy is to help you develop strength and adapt to your condition. With the right treatments, occupational therapy can make everyday activities easier and improve your overall quality of life. It can help a person enhance skills like walking, talking, eating, cleaning and any other activities limited by a condition or injury.
Occupational therapy can help treat a variety of conditions and traumas, many of which affect motor skills. These can include:
The care team at our inpatient facilities includes more than occupational therapists (OTs). We provide specialists from multiple disciplines to provide comprehensive care during your long-term stay. Our OTs perform examinations and evaluations to determine the best course of treatment. They confer with our professionals to ensure all aspects of the treatment plan work toward a common goal.
Outpatient Occupational Therapy
For smaller injuries and more manageable conditions, our outpatient occupational therapy clinics provide complete care in scheduled sessions. PAM has outpatient locations across the United States for care where it is most convenient for you. Outpatient treatment is also ideal for individuals who require continued attention after spending time in an inpatient facility.
Our OTs create treatment plans personalized to patient needs. After performing an exam and evaluation, they will compile a list of therapies and practices that will be most beneficial to you. This plan, paired with scheduled visits, can help you see improvement in your injury or maintain the skills earned during inpatient care.
Types of Treatment
Whether you are involved in an outpatient or inpatient program, your therapist will use a variety of therapies to help you build strength and skills. OTs focus primarily on using everyday activities as a form of treatment, and their holistic approach can include various practices. Possible therapies include:
Specialized equipment instruction

Visual acuity rehab
