Leading-Edge Orthopedic Occupational Therapy in Arizona

Orthopedic occupational therapy helps people regain independence in their daily activities or occupations. Dignity Health offers occupational therapy in a variety of settings. During occupational therapy, your doctor or physical therapist will:

  • Evaluate your ability to perform various activities
  • Design a treatment plan based on your lifestyle, activity goals, and goals for returning to your occupation
  • Coordinate with other orthopedic specialists and health care providers as appropriate for comprehensive care

Your doctor may recommend occupational therapy for evaluation and treatment if you have been injured or if you have a condition that is affecting or limiting your ability to function effectively in your job or daily life activities.
