Meet with our trained and certified occupational therapists to regain the mobility you need to get back to work and go about your daily routine.
Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital Occupational Therapy Services Include:
Neurological Occupational Therapy
Designed to help return function and independence to patients, neurological occupational therapy helps people who experience issues with the nervous system. Therapists focus on improving coordination and balance and retraining patients on daily activities such as eating, grooming and basic housekeeping.
Orthopedic Occupational Therapy
Orthopedic therapists work with patients following surgery, to help them rehabilitate and regain musculoskeletal function. Therapists work with patients in an ongoing basis, helping to rebuild their strength and stamina. They also help to address any conditions faced following specific medical procedures.
Patients who undergo therapeutic massage as part of their physical therapy can experience relief from pain while recovering from an injury. Therapeutic massage can be a valuable part of any wellness program, helping patients increase their range of motion and decrease their anxiety and stress.
