Customizing Your Therapy
Kirby Medical Center’s occupational therapy team begins by providing
each patient with a comprehensive evaluation, followed by education regarding
the diagnosis, recovery, and injury prevention. Your therapist may ask
questions about your home and daily routine so that they can assign exercises
specifically designed for building the muscles used in your day-to-day
routine. They may also recommend changes you can make to your home in
order to accomplish certain tasks more easily.
If you have a job you need to get back to, tell your therapist what it
usually entails so they can design the therapy with exercises that can
help you return to work, or find a way for you to work from home.
