Methods we use in our occupational therapy plans

The word “occupation” in the name of this therapy is a synonym for work, and that’s the type of injury we use it for. There are many types of work-related injuries that this type of therapy can help you with. For instance, it can help treat muscle strains and sprains that you get on the job. You likely know how easy it can be to sprain something while lifting a heavy box at work. It can also help treat carpal tunnel syndrome. This injury is easy to get if you spend a lot of time typing on the computer at work. 

In addition, this type of therapy can also help you treat injuries such as bursitis, tendonitis and bone fractures.

It’s possible for our therapists to help you treat all these and other work-related injuries for one simple reason: we have so many helpful physical therapy methods at our disposal. Even better, all the methods that we use are evidence-based. This means that we’ve used them many times before to help people with work-related injuries just like yours, and we’ve seen the results for ourselves. Our therapy plans for work-related injuries may include the following methods:

  • Joint mobilization
  • Active release technique
  • Aquatic therapy
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Electrical stimulation treatments
  • Dry needling therapy

Our therapists will combine these and other therapies into a customized plan for your work injury. By doing so, we may be able to reduce your pain and get you back to work faster than you think.
