We provide general Occupational Therapy services
Our Occupational Therapists assist individuals and/or groups enhance their engagement in activities of daily life. They are university accredited allied health professionals with expertise in the analysis of tasks, duties, and roles; and the associated functional abilities required to perform these effectively and efficiently. In other words, our OTs will get you moving towards doing the things you find meaningful in your life. This may be a personal goal such as going fishing after a shoulder injury, returning to your work or generally improving your ability to participate and lead an independent life.
OTs encompass a client-centered approach incorporating treatments beyond just recovery of the body. We recognise that as a person you are more than just your injury or health condition. Our focus when you see us at Functional Revival encompasses the whole person perspective. This mainly includes the combined effects of the physical (body), psychological (mind) and social influences impacting on your current health.
Some examples of where we may assist you:
- Physical and psycho-social assessments
- Aged care consultancy
- Education, training, and support
- Neurological rehabilitation (e.g. hand therapy post-stroke to regain function)
- Equipment prescription, set-up, and training for safe use
- OT home assessment and modifications
- Occupation based interventions
In addition, we believe that engagement in meaningful occupations is essential for health and well-being. As OTs, we have a high-level understanding of activity and thus best placed to guide you through rehabilitation towards a fulfilling lifestyle.
