Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) is an integrative approach to rehabilitation that uses evidence-based interventions to treat performance deficits in day-to-day life. Occupational therapists assess patients’ independence in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), assist patients in goal-setting, and utilize therapeutic techniques to help patients achieve success towards their goals. We understand that the most efficient method of treatment is both collaborative and holistic, with a focus on the entire person. Therefore at BASE, we individualize OT treatment plans to address areas of concern throughout the entire body. Our occupational therapist(s) address your physical symptoms, psychological and emotional elements, environmental factors, and functional implications in order to help you regain your independence as quickly as possible.
