Occupational therapy services are available at Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin. Occupational therapists work closely with other healthcare providers, who may refer a patient to therapy following surgery, wrist or hand injuries, immobilization by splints or casts, and/or a change in ability to perform everyday activities.
After a thorough evaluation, the therapist and patient create an individualized treatment plan to improve, sustain or restore daily functional activities. A treatment plan may include:
Range of motion and strengthening exercises
Home safety evaluations
Training and education
Patients take an active role in their recovery by completing home exercises, functional activities and by learning how to manage their symptoms and pain, and prevent re-injury.
