Patients range in age from infants and children to adults and geriatric adults. We see patients with: 

  • Work related injuries
  • Stroke or neurological incidents
  • Arthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) 
  • Children with birth injuries, learning problems or developmental disabilities
  • Mental health problems
  • Substance abuse problems
  • Burns
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • or other serious illnesses

We take referrals from community physicians as well as maintain a close working relationship with our patients’ health care providers. The overall goal of occupational therapy is to have each person functioning at their highest level of independence in completing the activities needed to live productive lives.
