Occupational Therapy

Prognosia Offers Occupational Therapy In Gurgaon

Occupational therapy helps people when a health problem affects their ability to function. Therapists help people learn how to perform tasks of daily life such as eating, bathing and writing. our occupational therapists focus on upper and lower body functions and muscles that make small movements used in fine motor skills. if your child had an injury, we work with them to restore their previous level of function.

How It Benefits

Treatment may include moving joints in specific directions and at different speeds to regain movement (joint mobilization and manipulation), muscle stretching, passive movements of the affected body part, or having the patient move the body part against the therapist’s resistance to improve muscle activation and timing. Selected specific soft tissue techniques may also be used to improve the mobility and function of tissue and muscles.”

What services occupational therapy offers?

Neurodevelopment Therapy

NDT is a holistic and interdisciplinary clinical practise model informed by current and evolving research that emphasizes individualized therapeutic handling based on movement analysis for habitation and rehabilitation of individuals with neurological pathophysiology. The therapist uses a problem-solving approach to assess activity and participation, thereby to identify and prioritize relevant integrities and impairments as a basis for establishing achievable outcomes with clients and caregivers. Therapeutic handling, used during evaluation and intervention, consists of a dynamic reciprocal interaction between the client and therapist for activating optimal sensorimotor processing, task performance, and skill acquisition to enable participation in meaningful activities.

Neuro-Cognitive Therapy

Cognition refers to information-processing functions, including attention, memory, and executive functions (i.e., planning, problem-solving, self-monitoring, and self-awareness). Impairments in functional cognition are common and can result from multiple causes, including Human genetics and/or development, Neurologic disease, injuries, and disorders. Occupational therapy practitioners focus their interventions on the relationship between the client’s cognitive skills, functional performance, and environmental context to enhance the daily life experience of individuals with cognitive impairment.

Self-care programme:

Self-care skills are the everyday tasks undertaken so children and adults with multiple disabilities are ready to participate in life activities (including dressing, eating, cleaning teeth). They are often referred to as the activities of daily living (ADL’s). Self-care skills are one of the first ways that develop the ability to plan and sequence task performance, to organise the necessary materials and to develop the refined physical control required to carry out daily tasks.

Hand Therapy

Hand therapy is the art and science of evaluating and treating injuries and conditions of the upper extremity (shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand). It uses a number of therapeutic interventions to help return a person to their highest level of function.

Hand therapy typically addresses the biomechanical issues underlying upper-extremity conditions. Occupational Therapist uses an occupation-based and client-centred approach that identifies the participation needs of the client—what he or she wants to be able to do in daily life that is fulfilling, necessary, and/or meaningful—and emphasizes the performance of desired activities as the primary goal of therapy.
