What is Occupational Therapy?
At ORC, our Occupational Therapy program provides techniques and strategies for children and adults to acquire life skills. It focuses on sensory-motor, social, emotional and cognitive functions. Our therapy model customizes programs based on your level and situation. With our synergistic approach, we work closely with other team members to maximize outcomes.
Our therapists work with patients to create personalized plans for developing or maintaining skills needed to support each individual patient’s needs, return to a previous level of functioning, increase independence, and reach personal recovery goals.
Oxford’s Occupational Therapy model combines conventional and non-conventional techniques to facilitate rehabilitation. Our approach focuses on retraining the body and brain in everyday situations. Occupational Therapy sessions are one-on-one and allow our therapists to focus on your specific needs without interruption.
Our Synergistic Approach
By approaching recovery with a multifaceted therapy approach, Oxford’s model promotes synergy between different therapies. This is where the interaction or cooperation of two or more therapies healing the entire body creates a greater effect than the sum of their separate effects. Simply put, 1+1=3.
