The team at Midlothian Healthcare Center is dedicated to providing patients with occupational therapy services that will help make their lives easier and improve their overall well-being.
Occupational Therapy Services
Our team believes that the best approach to occupational therapy includes sensitivity, compassion, and understanding, which is why we're a great fit for patients seeking quality, holistic care. Our programs are suited to those with short-term and long-term impairments, both physical and neurological. We help patients relearn daily activities, including bathing, dressing, grooming, preparing meals, and cooking. We can provide patient and family vehicle transfer training. We offer Home Evaluations with our therapist to ensure a safe transition back home.
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 bodily injury, cognitive disability, or emotional behavior disorder, our therapists help patients fully engage in daily life with structured exercises and techniques to support recovery. 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 daily lives.
