Occupational Therapy offers total body rehabilitation by addressing the source of movement, pain, and repair – your brain. Through neurocentric rehabilitation and a commitment to following a plan, rehabilitation can be successful with long-term outcomes. You have never experienced occupational therapy like this before.
Although every plan of care and patient is unique to your diagnosis and problem areas, we use specific treatment strategies throughout every plan of care to maximize results. We have done extensive research and maintain monthly competencies to ensure you are given the best therapy.
Neurological disorders and diagnoses can greatly benefit from a neurocentric therapist. When your therapist works from a neurological perspective, it’s like looking at many pieces of a puzzle and seeing the end result before the pieces are even placed. Neurocentric rehabilitation gives hope to those with a variety of progressive neurological diagnoses.
The biggest obstacle you will face to your rehabilitation is oftentimes yourself. A crucial element to our approach to rehabilitation is a formal commitment of both you and your therapist to the plan of care, a home exercise program, a positive outlook, and follow-through. It takes time to see results, re-train your body and brain, eliminate chronic pain, and restore function. Many times your injury or ailment did not appear overnight, and likewise, will not disappear in 1-2 sessions.
What is Neurocentric Rehabilitation?
Buffalo Occupational Therapy practitioners are passionate and competent in neurological diagnoses, concepts, rehabilitation approaches, and the application of neurologic based techniques. We have learned that in order to see total body results, you must use the correct approach. Occupational therapy redefined through the lens of a neuro centered method offers a fresh vantage point to recovery. Whether you are recovering from surgery, re-learning upper or lower body mobility, suffering from chronic pain, or having difficulty with activities of daily life, we believe the root of all ailments lie within neurological function. By incorporating neuromuscular re-education, neurodevelopmental techniques, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation strategies, visual perception, and neurocognitive strategies into your recovery plan, we are helping your brain do what it was designed to do: help heal the body through neural re-patterning and neural plasticity and restore homeostasis to your function and independence.
