Occupational Therapy for Adults

at Bellaire PT

Bellaire PT’s occupational therapy services help adults of all ages work to improve their participation in activities of daily living or “daily occupations” through therapeutic activities, manual therapy, and therapeutic exercise.

Orthopedic/Hand Therapy

OT works with patients who are experiencing challenges due to orthopedic and hand conditions including fractures of the arm, wrist, and hand, tendonitis, OT, rheumatoid arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Neurological Therapy

OT works with patients who are experiencing challenges due to neurological conditions including stroke, traumatic brain injury, Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and nerve damage

Driver's Rehabilitation

OT works with patients who are learning to drive, returning to drive following an illness/injury, or are experiencing a decline in physical, visual, or memory function to create a safe and effective driving plan. 

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.

Caregiver Support

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.

These folks are the very best. I have been to a lot of different therapy places in my life, and the people here are so... much better that they are not in the same ballpark. First, a large percentage of the clinical staff are doctors of physical therapy, DPT. They not only know what to do, they also know why, and what are the underlying reasons. Second, during your appointment you will be the only one your physical therapist is dealing with. That means you won't be sent off to do exercises while your therapist works with someone else. Instead you will have close attention to ensure that you are using the correct form and getting the most benefit from the exercises you are doing. Third, physical manipulations are part of every session and really add to the therapeutic benefit. It would be hard to say too many good things about Bellaire physical therapy.read more

I've had pain in my thoracic spine for about 5 years, and nothing has helped as much as Dr. Lieberman and the rest of... the staff at Bellaire PT. I've spent over $10k on MRIs, 3 different chiro's, PTs, osteopaths, massage therapist, holistic health coaches, and and seen more improvement in my pain and mobility in 3 weeks with Dr. Lieberman than I have in the last 4.5 years. He is truly knowledgeable in his craft and cares about helping you not just feel better, but understand what is going on. The manual therapy has been an absolute game-changer for me.I'm 30 year old male and otherwise very healthy, with a very rare injury and Dr. Lieberman was still able to help figure out what was wrong and how to begin to remedy it. I was very active growing up and played sports constantly. Within 2 weeks I was able to play tennis again and go to yoga. Being active isn't just for health, it's part of my identity and Dr. Lieberman, Ayel, Corey, Sam, and the other staff have given me back a huge part of my life. Melissa at the front is always welcoming, and the entire staff is friendly and helpful.If you are in pain, even if you've tried many other forms of intervention - just go take the first step and get an evaluation!!read more

It is important to Dr. Lieberman that you understand exactly what is happening at all times with your body and how to... best recover. The excellent staff is indicative of Lieberman’s character and of the care he puts into ensuring each patient has the highest quality experience. Lieberman clearly trusts his employees, this results in a very laid back atmosphere giving each therapist the freedom to bring their own personalized approach to your treatment - considering the discomfort we’re all in when seeking physical therapy this last point especially testifies to why you too should seek treatment at Bellaire Physical Therapy!read more

Dr. Lieberman gave me back my life! As a runner I was having issues with my lower back. After two years of numerous... visits to Orthopedic doctors and several MRI’s, none of them were able to help me. Not only was I not able to do any running at all, some days I could barley get out of bed or walk. Dr. Lieberman was amazing, he told me during my first appointment "I will fix you up", and he was right. I actually did feel better after the very first visit. He was able to diagnose my issue quickly, and the results were amazing just after a few sessions. I felt very comfortable with him and I would recommend this place with 20 stars if I could.read more

I had terrible back/tailbone pain that traveled down my leg and made it so I could barely sit for more than 30 minutes.... I went to 2 orthopedic doctors and they took x-rays and scans prescribed me some medicine and said if that did not help I would likely need surgery. Upon telling my general practitioner doctor about this he immediately sent me to Dr. Lieberman at Bellaire PT. During an initial consultation Dr. Lieberman was able to pinpoint my issues by recreating what was causing my terrible pain. From there he put me on a schedule for visits twice a week at his office and things to do at home. Over the course of a few months my pain went from a 10 to a very manageable 4. From there we reduced my visits to once a week and after a few more months the pain totally disappeared. It has been around 6-9 months since I have finished seeing him and there is still no pain. I have no problems going to the gym and working out, doing sports, yard work and sitting (does not matter how long) does not cause me any pain.I can't say enough about Dr. Lieberman and his staff. They saved me from having to have surgery and now I am 100% better. My doctor said from the onset that Dr. Lieberman was the best in Houston and I can definitely attest that to be true.read more

He used a multidisciplinary approach, including dry needling, to get me back to competing in a very short time. Great team of people. Very uplifting place.read more

Frequently Asked Questions

Which diagnoses would benefit from OT treatment?

People with the following diagnoses or challenges may benefit from occupational therapy to address their functional needs: upper extremity fractures, tendinopathy and tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain tumors, brain injury, spinal cord injury, surgery, seizures, Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and so much more.

What is the difference between OT and PT?

OT and PT both work with patients of all ages on strengthening, exercise, and range of motion. However, OT maintains a strong focus on fine motor skills, hand use and coordination, activities of daily living, and functional activities. Many of our patients have both OT and PT needs and benefit from both services. Our OTs and PTs work very closely with each other to complement sessions and help you progress toward your goals.

What skills does occupational therapy address?

OT addresses underlying skills as well as functional activities. Underlying skills include range of motion, strength, coordination, etc. The resulting functional activities that are impacted and addressed include grasping coins, pouring a drink, cutting vegetables, dressing, showering safety, grooming, and so much more.

Where does the name occupational therapy come from anyway?!

Occupational therapy comes from OT’s focus on improving people’s ability to participate in daily activities that are important to them. We refer to these activities as ADLs or Activities of Daily Living. These activities are our occupations that fill each and every day of our lives. Occupations are individual for each person including their roles as an employer or employee, parent, spouse, child, sibling, caregiver, etc. Thinking about all of the skills that a person needs in order to participate in their daily occupations is what OTs do, so that you can be more functional and independent while performing all of your roles.
