Occupational Therapy in Walker County
Maintaining Independence with Huntsville Memorial Hospital
The Occupational Therapy program at Huntsville Memorial Hospital provides
specialized training, including exercise, fine motor tasks, and living
skills to help patients return to their previous level of independence.
Unlike other forms of rehabilitation, occupational therapy focuses specifically
on the activities patients will need to perform on their own in their
day-to-day lives to care for themselves, meet important responsibilities,
and enjoy their free time. To learn more about our occupational therapy
programs, contact us at Huntsville Memorial Hospital today.
Understanding Occupational Therapy
To compensate for disabilities, therapists work with patients to utilize
special equipment and techniques. Our therapists will work with our patients
to tailor their therapy to their specific needs and individual progress.
Occupational therapy can include:
- Hand therapy
- Custom orthotics
- Pediatric rehabilitation
- Swallowing evaluation
- Driving evaluation
- Meal preparation
No two patients are alike and our therapists will partner closely with
our patients and their loved ones to set specific goals. In many cases,
we even work with patients on returning to the hobbies and vocations they
enjoyed before their medical issue—or help them find new ones. Whatever
the case may be, our patients can count on dedicated, compassionate care
from our occupational therapists as they strive to return to better, healthier lives.
Your health, Our community, Our commitment. To learn more about our occupational
