Who Could Benefit From Neurological Therapy 

Individuals with a neurological illness or injury can benefit from a skilled intervention of an Occupational Therapist in order to help regain mobility and health. Our therapists can develop and implement an individualized treatment program to meet the patient’s goals and needs.

Learn More About Occupational Therapy

The goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable an individual to carry out their activities of daily living, which include those performed at work, home, school and in the community, as independently as possible. Following a thorough evaluation,  an occupational therapist will tailor a treatment plan dedicated to restoring your maximum functional ability. Your therapist will work individually with you and will closely monitor your progress and modify your occupational therapy program as required.
