The occupational therapy profession is highlighted during the month of April nationally, as it is Occupational Therapy Month. Occupational therapists can help people of all ages (from babies to senior adults) with independence in daily activities. At Norton County Hospital, Chelsea Stagemeyer, OTR/L, sees patients regularly for evaluation and establishment of a plan of care, which can include exercise programs for post-surgical, muscle weakness and other upper extremity injuries. It can also include assistance for pain control and manual therapy for soft-tissue mobilization.

Chelsea discusses some of the ways she helps patients with fine motor coordination skills, pediatric therapy, fall prevention and home modification education, and wheelchair evaluations. Chelsea has a special interest in creating custom orthotic splints for hand and wrist injuries. Hear more about her work and the importance of occupational therapists in the health care system.
