Our Practice Promise
Bellaire PT is proud to offer hands-on care, working with the most current, research based, and cutting-edge techniques to help people from all ages recover from lost function, pain, lack of coordination, upper extremity/hand injuries, and difficulty with ADL performance. Our occupational therapists work with their patients throughout individual sessions which are customized to meet each patient’s unique needs. We work with patients on key issues related to independence in the area of activities of daily living such as grooming, dressing, toileting, feeding, and bathing. Underlying skills are addressed, as well as possible equipment recommendations, to improve the patient’s quality of life. Your occupational therapist will work with you to determine which exercises are most appropriate for you to progress toward your specific goals, keep you engaged, and challenge you just the right amount.
Here at Bellaire PT caregiver education and participation is very important to us. It is essential for carryover of skills in the home and community environments. We like to include your loved ones in the therapeutic process so that they have a full understanding of what you are working on in therapy and receive guidance and training related to how to help you progress at home by applying your home exercise program.
