Occupational Therapy in Severn, Glen Burnie MD

Occupational Therapy

Our comprehensive occupational therapy services will help to maximize the individual level of safety and independence while increasing strength, endurance, and preventing deformity. Our occupational therapists consider physical, psychological, and social factors than can influence illness and disability.

Our occupational therapists care for patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors, who have health-related conditions or other medical problems that may limit their ability to perform activities in their daily lives or limit their independence. By carefully assessing your unique condition, we are able to create an effective course of therapy as individual as you.

Occupational therapists get patients back to work, but they also customize treatment programs to help with the 'everyday things' like learning to bathe, dress or feed after a stroke or rehabilitating your shoulder after a rotator cuff surgery.

 

Testing strength, range of motion, balance, coordination, manual dexterity, muscle tone, and sensation help the therapist to determine an individualized treatment program. Our therapists keep your physician informed of the most up to date information concerning your progress in therapy. We work closely with a team of physicians and specialists in the community to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.
