Experienced OT Hand Specialists Near New Orleans

While many people believe “occupational” therapy refers to a type of therapy that specifically helps people get back to a job, this is not the case. Occupational therapy is designed to help people get back to the tasks they need to get through daily life, such as:

  • Eating independently
  • Leaving beds and chairs without help
  • Bathing and using the restroom independently

In addition, occupational therapists help with your return to more complex but important aspects of daily life, including:

  • Leisure time
  • Hobbies and play
  • Interacting with others
  • Returning to school or work

Frequently Asked Questions

Is hand therapy just for adults?

Not at all. When children are injured or become disabled, they may need occupational hand therapy to help them navigate stages of development while recovering from their injury or adapting to their disability. Jefferson Orthopedic Clinic is proud to provide pediatric hand therapy as well as therapy for adults.

Between occupational therapy vs physical therapy, which is better?

Physical therapy and occupational therapy are both beneficial, depending on your individual needs as a patient. At Jefferson Orthopedic, we also offer physical therapy to patients who feel this approach may suit their recovery goals.

How long will I have to wait for my appointment at Jefferson Orthopedic?

The sooner you begin your physical therapy, the better your outcomes. That’s why Jefferson Orthopedic Clinic is proud to offer same-day appointments for those wishing to begin their recovery with our highly-trained team.
