We’re committed to offering you the most advanced, research based care you need to return to the highest level of functioning possible. Our team is highly trained, with team members who have worked in public school systems in Houston, TX and Atlanta, Georgia. Team members have also worked at Children’s Specialized Hospital in NJ.
Our occupational therapists will start with a comprehensive therapy evaluation to assess functional status in all areas. Therapists will work closely with patients and their family members or parents to provide a short-term and long-term treatment plan.
Parental guidance and teacher training are also provided to offer a robust environment where the patient can reduce functional limitations and improve targeted areas. The evaluation may also include a school assessment if the patient is still of school age.
Bellaire PT offers hands-on care and cutting-edge techniques to help people from all walks of life recover from lost function, pain, hand injuries, wrist injuries, elbow injuries and shoulder injuries, too.
Our occupational therapists work with patients for 50 to 60 minutes per session, however, sessions can be customized to meet your needs.
Caregivers may be provided with a home program that allows for therapy to be performed in the home, too. Support is an essential part in recovery and helping patients meet their goals. Caregivers will receive the guidance and training they need to help their loved one progress. In this way, the skills that are honed at therapy will carry over into the home and community.
We will work with patients on key issues a person faces when trying to remain independent. Occupational therapists also evaluate key areas, such as grooming, dressing, toileting, feeding and bathing. Equipment may also be recommended and homes may be toured to determine what equipment may be needed to improve the patient’s quality of life.
Your occupational therapist will work with you to determine which exercises keep you engaged, active and working towards your goals. An adult who has had a stroke may work on basic grooming and dressing tasks. Children may work through games and other fun sessions that keep their attention and make therapy fun.
