Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Being unable to do the things you want and need to do independently significantly impacts your quality of life. Occupational Therapists understand the impact various physical, psychological, emotional and social issues have on an individual and can help you overcome them. Interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill and educating the client/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities, particularly those that are meaningful to the individual.

An Occupational Therapist can help you if you or someone you know who has any of the following difficulties:

  • Paediatric/developmental delays (either with or without a diagnosis)
  • Behavioural problems (either with or without a diagnosis)
  • Difficulties processing sensory information
  • Wrist, hand or finger injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Acquired brain injury
  • Oedema
  • Cognitive decline related to aging or specific conditions such as Alzheimers
  • Neurological conditions such as stroke
  • Mental health conditions eg depression/anxiety
  • Work injuries

A referral is not required to see our Occupational Therapist, however we do accept Medicare, Department of Veteran Affairs and WorkCover referrals.

If you have any questions or want to book an appointment, call the friendly staff in your local office.
