Pomona Valley Health Centers: Occupational Therapy

Pomona Valley Health Centers offer in-clinic occupational therapy for adults at our La Verne clinic, and for children at our Chino Hills and Claremont Milestones Centers for Child Development.

Our highly experienced and dedicated therapy team includes licensed occupational therapists (OT) and occupational therapist assistants (OTA), as well as certified hand therapists (CHT).

Rehabilitation services includes all of the following in each patient’s assessment and treatment:

  • Personalized consultation and evaluation of the patient’s physical and mental capabilities
  • Incorporate the patient’s goals into our plan
  • Discussions regarding the patient’s living environment and work setting and recommendations offered for both safety and ergonomic consideration
  • Individualized therapies and plans that often include physical exercise and the use of specialized equipment
  • Continual and ongoing monitoring and reassessment

Understanding Occupational Therapy

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:

  • When a person experiences a permanent or long-term disability that affects their ability to perform the basic functions of daily life
  • When a person suffers an injury that requires them to relearn or regain the skills necessary to perform their professional duties
  • When a person experiences an age-related cognitive or physical decline

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.

How Can I Benefit from Occupational Therapy?

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:

  • Stroke
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Vision loss
  • Memory loss

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.
