What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy does so much more than make sure that you can go back to your job.

If you’re like most people, you want to live and work independently for as long as possible. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain a self-sufficient lifestyle after injury, illness, or surgery.

Bone & Joint’s compassionate occupational therapy professionals work with you to master the motions and movements you need to care for yourself in your home and on the job.

How do you know if you need occupational therapy?

If you have a condition that makes it hard for you to get in and out of your bed or your chair, wash up, open jars, fix yourself something to eat, or other movements necessary to take care of yourself, you are a candidate for occupational therapy.

Bone & Joint can help you modify your movements to accomplish tasks in new ways or retrain your muscles, so you can do the things you need to do to live and work independently.

Whether your lack of movement is caused by a physical, developmental, or emotional issue, Bone & Joint’s occupational therapists can help you move better so you can enjoy your life to its fullest.

Bone & Joint’s occupational therapy program can get you back to work and back to life. Our occupational therapy team is dedicated to helping you move and live better.

If you experience pain and loss of movement from an injury, surgery, or illness, contact Bone & Joint at 855.810.6421 to make an appointment with a therapist in Wausau or Plover.
