Occupational Therapy & Hand Therapy

Occupational therapy is treatment to help you live as independently and productively as possible when faced with serious injury, illness, surgical recovery or other health conditions.

Your Partner for Occupational Therapy

When you need to master the skills needed for “the job of daily living,” rely on the occupational therapy team at PIH Health. No matter what your age, our licensed therapists can help you in three areas: regaining strength, relearning how to do everyday activities and finding new ways of doing things you did before.

During occupational therapy, we focus on the things you do every day. We help you set goals to learn or safely return to:

  • Taking care of personal hygiene, grooming and dressing
  • Speaking and communicating
  • Preparing food
  • Getting in and out of a vehicle

Occupational therapy can be a good choice to help you recover from conditions like:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Traumatic or overuse injuries
  • Nerve- and brain-related disorders
  • Cancer
  • Fracture
  • Tendon repair or replacement
  • Trauma and serious injury
