Pomona Valley Health Centers offer in-clinic occupational therapy for children and adults at our La Verne, Chino Hills, and Claremont clinics.
Our highly experienced and dedicated occupational therapists are all licensed, with some certified in particular specialty areas.
Patients receive the following rehabilitation services:
Occupational therapy is designed to help people develop or redevelop the skills necessary to perform a variety of tasks relating to their professions or lifestyles. These programs help patients enhance their physical strength and dexterity, learn effective strategies and techniques for navigating physically challenging circumstances, and improve their overall quality of life. Occupational therapy is often recommended in the following circumstances:
However, occupational therapy is not limited to recovery from physical limitations. Many people elect to pursue this option to manage or overcome mental health struggles or emotional challenges that inhibit their ability to live active, fulfilling lives.
Our programs are tailored to the needs of individual patients, including help with specific job-related tasks, school performance, or activities of daily living (ADL). Occupational therapy might also involve pain-reduction interventions for patients whose chronic pain inhibits their ability to participate in everyday activities. The goal is to facilitate a full recovery wherever possible.
Anyone recovering from a debilitating illness or injury might benefit from occupational therapy. While our occupational therapy clinic is frequently recommended for people who have experienced severe, life-changing injuries, people who have endured serious emotional trauma or are managing mental illness can also benefit from customized therapy programs. Occupational therapists routinely treat patients who have experienced the following:
Occupational therapy is also an excellent tool for people who struggle to regulate their emotional responses, those with learning differences, and those with previously undiagnosed neurological or developmental disorders.
While the goal for most patients is significant or complete recovery from the injury or disorder that inhibits normal activities, occupational therapy can help improve patient self-confidence and facilitate independent living even when the impairment is chronic. This option has been found to reduce the likelihood of experiencing additional injuries, increase mobility, and reduce dependence upon pain management medications.
Our occupational therapy clinics can be beneficial to people of all ages, from small children with neurological differences or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to older adults with arthritis, osteoporosis, or signs of dementia.
