Returning individuals to their optimal health is the goal of Roxborough Memorial Hospital physical therapists. This goal is achieved by providing individualized treatment programs. Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation by a licensed therapist who then develops a treatment program that matches the needs and goals of the individual.
Occupational Therapists at Roxborough Memorial Hospital work with adults experiencing a broad range of conditions such as stroke, arthritis, neurological disorders or events, orthopedic injuries and surgeries, work related injuries, fatigue and weakness due to illness, low vision and cognitive impairment. The Occupational therapist completes a comprehensive evaluation, then, in collaboration with the patient, designs and implements a customized treatment program. The focus of treatment may be maximizing functions in terms of arm and hand use, increasing independence in activities of daily living, promoting improved participation in work and leisure activities, and/or health promotion and prevention of future impairments.
