Occupational Therapy

Improve Fine Motor Skills with Occupational Therapy

When you lose function or experience pain due to injury, disease, or repetitive stress, you need a skilled and specialized approach to restore your mobility and relieve your discomfort.

At OrthoUnited, our licensed occupational therapists offer treatment for a wide range of conditions affecting the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow, and shoulder area, including wounds, scars, burns, injured tendons and nerves, fractures, and total amputations. We work with your physician to identify the specific problems you are having and guide you through the stages of treatment.

We also offer advanced hand therapy. Our certified hand therapists must complete 4,000 documented patient contact hours, have a minimum of five years of licensed practice experience, and must successfully complete the certified hand therapist examination.

Your occupational therapist creates an individualized plan that may include some specialty treatments such as:

  • Manual therapy
  • Custom splint fabrication or therapeutic taping
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques
  • Individualized strength and flexibility programs
  • Motor relearning
  • Joint protection
  • Work stimulation
  • Electrical modalities
  • Sports-specific therapy

Physical Therapy vs. Occupational Therapy

Whereas occupational therapy is designed to help you improve the fine motor skills needed to perform everyday activities, physical therapy is intended to help you improve overall movement, strength, and range of motion.

Our Patients Say It Best

“I have been coming to OrthoUnited for therapy on my shoulder and then my knee/back recently. In both cases, the therapists have been very knowledgeable, understanding, and were able to explain the what and why in a way that I was able to understand why we were doing the different therapies. Due to the issues found through an MRI on my shoulder, I will have surgery and then return to OrthoUnited for post surgery therapy.”
-Doug H.
“I've had really good treatment at OrthoUnited. Through the last 7 years or so, I've seen 4 different specialists for different reasons and the experience has been great. From the receptionists to the nursing staff, the MRI techs, physical therapists to the Dr's, the level of care and professionalism is wonderful.”
-Dawn C.
“I have been a patient of OrthoUnited for several years and have used a variety of different services within a number of specialties at their clinic: X-rays, CT, MRI scans and other diagnostic testing, physical therapy, and surgery. I have been well served by the Doctors and staff. The techniques used are state of the art and their facilities are excellent. It’s very convenient that everything is available at one location.”
-James C.
“Completely professional practice and support staff. I am an RN and have had my second surgery with OrthoUnited physicians. I am impressed how well they predicted the outcomes of my surgery. They supported me very well after-surgery, and in physical therapy, working with me and listening to me, to consider my goals too, not just the typical goals. I no longer have knee pain when I walk, and after several weeks of physical therapy, my back is better than it has been in the last year. I will return there if I have any future needs for ortho.”
-Randy H.
“I have seen 3 different orthopedics and had physical therapy, MRI’s and surgical procedures done at OrthoUnited, along with a few visits to their Express Care. All physicians and staff have been courteous, understanding, knowledgeable and taken great care of me!”
-Heather F.S.
