    Occupational Therapy

    Image 01

    Occupational therapy is the medical practice of equipping patients with the ability to do daily activities – both at work and outside of work – in a pain-free, functional way. Referrals most commonly come from surgeons and other doctors following surgery, trauma or a diagnosed medical condition. OT is a specialized form of medical care that focuses on the needs of the patients with sensitivity to their needs and abilities.

    Ergonomics

    Ergonomic evaluations assess the requirements of patients to perform motions in their daily lives, making corrective recommendations designed specifically for each individual. The goal is to enable clients to work and live pain-free in their daily activities. To accurately assess a client’s needs, Stacy will visit them at their work place, observe their routine activities and make recommendations on both physical and work practice amendments. Common accommodations include different furniture and keyboards, height and distance adjustment and changes in physical routines.

    Physical Therapy

    Image 01

    Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility - in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects. Physical therapists can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

    Physical Capacity Evaluations

    Image 01

    Many patients who have suffered workplace or lifestyle injuries fear they have suffered long-term debilitating setbacks that will keep them from returning to their normal jobs. That is certainly not always the case. Physical capacity evaluations provide a means of measuring a patient’s ability to return to work as they – and their employers – knew it before the injury. PCEs are commonly requested by employers and agencies to help all parties understand what is possible. PCEs are done at the D&W clinic.
