Outpatient Rehabilitation

Occupational Therapy for Neurological Impairments

Occupational Therapy (OT) promotes healing in people recovering from neurological conditions such as a stroke through therapy and education.
The occupational therapists of the Outpatient Rehabilitation Department at Virginia Hospital Center assist patients as they build and re-learn skills that are important for independent functioning and activities of daily living, including functional movement, vision, and functional cognition.
