Occupational therapy trains a person to achieve increased independence after a physical illness or injury. Relearning the daily tasks of living, from personal grooming and dressing to cooking and housekeeping, are stressed in Occupational Therapy. A patient needing special equipment for mobility and independence may need occupational therapy to learn how to and become accustomed with using such equipment. The occupational therapist works closely with the other therapists so that the interaction of the therapies will expedite the patient’s healing process. Because of this cooperation, the activities and level of techniques used vary from simple to complex, as necessary. Most importantly, the patient is actively involved in a variety of exercises so that their maximum physical and emotional strengths are used toward their recovery.
In summary Occupational Therapists focus on enhancing independence in these activities of daily living:
The Therapists utilize adaptive devices and techniques for:
Physical Therapy is designed to restore muscular strength and control which may have been lost due to illness or injury such as stroke, arthritis, fractures and back pain. Many physical therapy techniques are employed as patients and therapists work to restore as much joint motion and muscular strength as possible.
Forms of hydrotherapy (treatment in or with water, including whirlpool treatments), heat or cold treatments, soft-tissue release, may be used for a personal therapy regimen. If necessary, patients may also go through gait training and joint mobilization and strengthening exercises. Often, due to strokes or extreme injury or illness, physical therapy will include passive movement and patterning or neurodevelopment training which prevent stiffness and help restore and re-educate the communications network between the brain and muscles. Through the use of any one or a combination of all available methods of physical therapy, the primary goal is rehabilitation.
In summary, Physical Therapists focus on promoting optimal independent mobility, strength, and balance by:
Speech and language disorders caused by illness or injury may impair expression, comprehension, sound production and articulation. Difficulties with swallowing may also occur, especially following stroke, laryngeal cancer, head injury or Parkinson’s disease. The inability to swallow or to communicate is extremely frustrating, but those functions may be restored through an aggressive therapy program. Because the greatest progress is made early on in the treatment of these disorders, the therapist may work quickly with any patient requiring speech therapy. Difficulties overcome through speech therapy include aphasia, apraxia, dysphasia, and other articulation disorders, and expressive and receptive language disorders. The rehabilitation process centers on restoring as much of the original ability to communicate as possible.
In summary Speech/Language Pathologists focus on:
