Occupational Therapy

Welcome to Kinetic Physical Therapy and Wellness, where we are dedicated to providing comprehensive occupational therapy services to help individuals achieve their rehabilitation goals. Our team of highly trained and experienced occupational therapists is here to support you on your journey towards optimal independence and improved functionality.

Most of the time when people hear the term “occupational therapy”, they think of something to do with career counseling, but occupational therapy helps patients recover or develop skills needed for the activities of daily living, including self-care, leisure, independent living and work. 

Occupational Therapy Services Include:

Benefits of occupational therapy

Rehabilitation after Injury or Surgery:

Our occupational therapists work closely with patients recovering from injuries or surgeries, creating personalized treatment plans to rebuild strength, restore mobility, and improve overall functionality. Through targeted exercises, adaptive techniques, and assistive devices, we help individuals regain their abilities and return to their daily activities.

Chronic Condition Management:

Living with a chronic condition can be challenging, but our occupational therapy services aim to enhance your quality of life. Whether you're managing arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or any other chronic condition, our therapists can provide strategies and tools to overcome physical and cognitive limitations, optimize energy conservation, and improve overall self-care and daily functioning.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy:

For children with developmental delays, sensory processing disorders, or physical impairments, our pediatric occupational therapy services offer comprehensive evaluations and individualized treatment plans. We focus on enhancing fine motor skills, sensory integration, social interaction, and self-care abilities, enabling children to reach their fullest potential in daily activities and academics.

Geriatric Occupational Therapy:

As we age, daily tasks can become more challenging. Our geriatric occupational therapy services are tailored to meet the unique needs of older adults, promoting independent living and reducing the risk of falls. We address concerns related to balance, strength, memory, and home safety, providing personalized recommendations and adaptive strategies to support active aging.

Activities of Daily Living Retraining:

By addressing physical, cognitive, and environmental factors, our occupational therapists can effectively support individuals in retraining their activities of daily living, enabling them to regain independence and improve their overall quality of life. Services include assessment, goal setting, skill development, adaptive techniques and equipment, environmental modifications, training and education, and community reintegration.

Hand and Upper Extremity Injuries Rehab:

Through a combination of therapeutic interventions, guidance, and support, occupational therapists help individuals with hand and upper extremity injuries regain function, adapt to any residual limitations, and maximize their overall quality of life.

Sensory Integration:

Sensory integration refers to the brain's ability to organize and interpret sensory information from the environment and our own bodies. When there are challenges in sensory integration, it can affect an individual's ability to process and respond to sensory input effectively. Our occupational therapists utilize various techniques and interventions to help individuals with sensory integration difficulties.

Occupational Therapy Treatment Approaches:

An occupational treatment plan is created based on each patient’s evaluation and unique goals. This plan could include the following:

  • Splinting
  • Environmental modification
  • Self-care training
  • Home and community training
  • Functional and meaningful activities
  • Adaptive equipment
  • Therapeutic exercises
  • Range of motion and strengthening
  • Fine and gross motor activities
  • More

My post-surgery arthritic foot limits my choice of exercise options. I have been taking the aquatics exercise classes for a few months, and they are giving me the cardio, strength, and toning that I could not get before due to physical limitations. Kiara is exceptional in knowing exactly how hard to push me while still allowing me to enjoy the high of exercising again. A great workout that will get me 100% more mobile in no time. Highly recommend Kinetics.

I love Kinetic Physical Therapy. I am at that age where things are falling apart or hurting where I didnot know it could hurt. They have kept me from back surgery 10 years ago and my back does not hurt now!!! I go to the aquatic class weekly. Jill Davis was my physical therapist recently after knee surgery. Great job!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the aquatics exercise class. J love it because it gives me sense of personal attention with the smaller crowd and Kiara is easy to follow and very welcoming. I’m 9 months out from a second knee replacement along with severe osteoarthritis but I feel very comfortable in this class compared to another aquatics exercise class I observed at another location before I decided to try it. Thank you Kiara and Kinetics.
