Occupational therapy assists in restoring function; adjusting and adapting to life changes; and finding alternative ways to perform your daily activities. These can include work and leisure activities, writing, typing, child care or playing your instrument. It can also include dressing, bathing, personal hygiene, eating, and meal preparation. For children, it includes play, social interaction, school or pre-school performance. We might also look at your sleep and rest habits.
The goal is to promote health and participation in all aspects of life.
Occupational Therapists have either a Master or Doctor degree and are certified through the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy and organized in the AOTA. Many occupational therapists specialize in a field like orthopedics, hand therapy, mental health, pediatrics, geriatrics, neurology etc. or in certain treatment methods like Bobath, PNF, Sensory Integration or Feldenkrais®.
The Movement Clinic welcomes clients of all ages and has specialized in working with the Feldenkrais® method and with persons living with Neurological challenges (i.e. Stroke, Brain Injuries, Developmental Delays, Parkinsons, MS, Neuropathies, Dystonia etc.), Repetitive Stress Injuries (including carpal tunnel and sciatica) and Arthritis.
