Occupational therapy provides assessment and treatment for mild traumatic brain injuries and musculoskeletal injuries with the aim of improving and promoting independence and functioning in areas of self-care, leisure, and return to work. Occupational therapists take into consideration the physical, emotional, and cognitive changes that occur following an illness or injury. Interventions include but are not limited to providing strategies for symptom management, driving anxiety, cognitive rehabilitation, environmental modification, and equipment recommendations.
Speech-Language Pathologists (S-LPs) assess and provide intervention and support for a broad range of communication difficulties. After concussions and other brain injuries, cognitive and communication difficulties can arise in areas such as word finding, organizing thoughts for speaking, auditory comprehension, attention, memory, social communication, and reading comprehension. S-LPs can help all ages regain the skills needed to communicate effectively at work, at home, and in the community.
Kinesiologists develop individualized health and fitness programs. Additionally, we can provide individuals with helpful suggestions to modify work stations or the home environment to reduce work-site stress.
