Occupational Therapy

Restoring Independence

Paramount Rehabilitation Services offers orthopedic and neurological Occupational Therapy to help patients get back their functional independence while maintaining physical, cognitive, and emotional health. Occupational Therapy also addresses improving strength and reducing pain in upper extremities.

At Paramount, we draw on state-of-the-art technology and highly-trained staff to offer unique, specialized treatments, including Hand Therapy. Our Certified Hand Therapists can help you avoid surgery. If surgery is necessary, then the therapist can minimize post-surgical pain and help restore function. We rely on a variety of modalities including fluidotherapy, ultrasound machine, cold laser, iontophoresis, and paraffin wax dip. By utilizing modalities, we can increase blood flow and promote tissue healing, increase flexibility of the tissues prior to stretching, and reduce pain. We also customize splints for our patients to prevent or correct deformity, protect tissues for healing, and for optimal positioning to reduce pain and pressure on joints and nerves.

At Paramount, we draw on state-of-the-art technology and highly-trained staff to offer unique, specialized treatments, including:

  • Home Evaluations to assess your home and suggest modifications that will improve your safety and independence.
