Patient Stories

Occupational Therapy

In the course of daily living, people may sustain injuries or develop illnesses that can impair their ability to function normally. Occupational therapy is very effective in helping people regain their mobility, restore range of motion and eliminate pain.

Holy Name Medical Center has a large staff of specially trained occupational therapists who deliver skilled, customized care to help patients perform daily activities. After a thorough evaluation, they work with each patient to create a personal plan that best addresses the individual's needs, taking into account strengths and weaknesses. They understand the frustrations of not being able to perform simple tasks that once came so easily and help patients master movements for work skills, chores or leisure activities.

Holy Name's programs include:

  • Hand rehabilitation
  • Accessibility and adaptations of the home environment
  • Fabrication of orthotic devices and splints
  • Training for daily living activities
  • Upper extremity treatments to improve range of motion, coordination and strength
  • Visual/perceptual/cognitive skills, including computer-assisted programs
  • Wheelchair and Mobility Clinic

Hand Therapy

Holy Name has certified hand therapists with expertise in injuries and disorders of the hands and arms. They work with patients in a warm and accommodating environment to help restore function and enable patients to return to a productive lifestyle.

Conditions commonly treated include:

  • Hand surgery
  • Amputation
  • Arthritis
  • Burns, fractures, and lacerations
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Joint replacements
  • Shoulder injury
  • Tendon and nerve injuries
  • Tennis Elbow
