Occupational Therapy

Your Guide to Occupational Therapy

No matter what type of injury or condition you’re dealing with, it’s important to prepare your body to get back into the swing of your daily routine throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

If you’re suffering from an injury or recovering from a surgery of your hand, wrist, arm, or shoulder, our Licensed Physical Therapists and Doctors of Physical Therapy can help in your road to recovery.  While Occupational Therapy in an outpatient orthopedic setting focuses on rehabilitating the upper extremity from the hand to the shoulder, Physical Therapy includes rehabilitation for these regions as well.  This leads to people using these terms interchangeably in certain instances.  

Some common injuries and diagnoses treated by both occupational and physical therapists in the outpatient orthopedic setting include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Surgery
  • Wrist, Hand, Finger, Elbow, and Shoulder Fractures or Surgery
  • Wrist and Finger Tendonitis
  • Trigger Finger or Surgery
  • DeQuervain’s Tendonitis/Synovitis
  • Arthritis of the Hand and Wrist
  • Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow
  • Shoulder Bursitis, Arthritis, and Tendonitis
