Occupational Therapy: Keeping One Self-Sufficient

by BH Staff | May 22, 2009

Occupational Therapy at Baystate Franklin Medical Center, a service of Baystate Rehabilitation Care, is staffed by highly-trained, licensed professionals whose goal is to help one regain, develop and build hand and arm strengthening skills that are necessary for independent functioning.


Our occupational therapists and assistants work with individuals whose lives have been disrupted by illness, injury, normal aging and development disability. Our medically-managed program is designed to increase a patient's independence, restore health, confidence and self-sufficiency, using a comprehensive model that can address psychological, social and environmental factors that might limit independent functioning.


Self Evaluation:

-- Have you experienced a decrease in activity level or function?

-- Do you have pain in your hand, wrist, forearm or elbow?

-- Have you had any numbness or tingling in your hands recently?

-- Are you frequently dropping things or experiencing decreased hand strength?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may benefit from occupational therapy services at Baystate Franklin Medical Center.
