Midlothian HealthCare Center boasts a family-oriented group of team members who are dedicated to providing patients with occupational therapy services and care that will help to make their lives easier and improve their overall well-being.
Occupational Therapy Services
Our premier occupational therapy programs are suited for those with short-term and long-term impairments, both physical and neurological. We help our clients to re-learn daily activities including bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation, and cooking. We can even provide assistance with shopping and other leisurely activities. Midlothian also offers modification services such as vehicle adjustments for driving and wheelchair seat and cushion positioning.
How Occupational and Physical Therapy Differ
Although the fields of occupational and physical therapy do share similarities, such as educating patients on injury prevention, they also possess their own unique qualities and elements. Physical therapy, for example, focuses on pinpointing, diagnosing, and treating specific sources of an injury through the use of physical exercises like stretching and walking.
Occupational therapy, on the other hand, is designed to help the patient learn or relearn the skills of daily living rather than trying to treat or improve a physical ailment. Whether recovering from a physical injury, a cognitive disability, or emotional behavior disorder, our therapists help patients fully engage in daily life. When occupational therapists construct action plans for their patients, instead of analyzing muscles and joints, they evaluate daily tasks and activities. The end goal is to help patients regain functionality, mobility, and independence in their activities of daily living.
