Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapy team helps you recover from injury, disease and disability

With multiple OT locations and highly trained therapists, we work with you to regain mobility, function and quality of life

We are committed to providing a continuum of care from illness through to wellness. If you have experienced orthopedic, cardiac or breast surgeries, as well as strokes, traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries, our occupational therapists will help you regain the functional abilities you need to live life independently, prevent further injury and conserve energy.

If your ability to dress, bathe, keep house, feed yourself, work or play is impaired, whether by illness, accident or surgery, the Health Quest Occupational Therapy team provides you with the tools to relearn these skills, or helps you discover new ways to achieve them.

If you have experienced a complex health issue such as stroke, or head injury, Health Quest Rehab Therapies provides many kinds of therapy in each of our ten different locations. That means that you can undergo occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech-language therapy, and other specialized therapies, all under one roof.

When your personal mobility is challenged, having one location for all your rehab therapies can mean the difference between enduring less functionality and carrying forward with your treatment. Our goal is to help you experience great improvement in your daily activities.
