What Is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy provides customized intervention to improve a patient’s ability to perform everyday activities, both in life and at work. Occupational therapists (OTs) typically evaluate and treat outpatient orthopedic injuries to help patients regain full function and return to work. Most Concentra OTs are also Certified Hand Therapists (CHTs), which requires passing a certification exam and at least five years of experience in hand therapy. CHTs specialize in rehabilitating injuries and conditions related to the hand, wrist, and elbow.

    Concentra occupational therapists treat a variety of injuries, including repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, De Quervain’s tenosynovitis (swelling of thumb tendons), lateral and medial epicondylitis (aka tennis elbow), cubital tunnel syndrome (pressure in elbow nerves), and wrist, finger, and elbow sprains and strain. Our occupational therapy program also treats ligament and tendon injuries from the elbow down to the fingers, and post-surgical injuries from the elbow down to the fingers.
