Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps people improve activities of daily living after an illness, injury or surgery. Whether it’s buttoning a shirt, gripping a golf club or returning to full function at work, the experts at Southeast Georgia Health System can help you be as active and independent as possible.

Our occupational therapy expertise

Our licensed occupational therapists have many years of experience. They can address a wide range of concerns, including:

  • Cognitive impairment
  • Hand and upper-extremity injuries
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Rehabilitation after surgery, such as joint replacement
  • Stroke

Our team also includes pediatric occupational therapy experts, who provide care as part of our collaboration with Wolfson Children’s.

How our occupational therapists work with you

Occupational therapy starts with an evaluation by our team. Next, we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your therapy needs and personal goals.

We will make sure that you know what to expect from your journey, such as how long and how often you may need therapy and what types of treatments could be helpful. Depending on your needs, these treatments may include:

  • Custom splints
  • Exercise
  • Heat or cold therapy
  • Manual therapy
  • Ultrasound

How to get occupational therapy

We provide occupational therapy on an outpatient and inpatient basis, as well as in our Senior Care Centers.

To make an appointment for outpatient care, ask your provider to send us a referral.
