While physical therapy is beneficial in assessing and treating musculoskeletal and movement dysfunctions, the experts of GPT have aimed to provide a more comprehensive approach to healing by the inclusion of an Occupation Therapist. Creating a partnership between physical and occupational therapy allows Gillette Physical Therapy to apply additional knowledge and expert care to our treatment plans.
Occupational Therapists help their patients be successful in their day-to-day activities. They treat a broad range of clients: those who have suffered a stroke or heart attack, chronic conditions like arthritis, special prosthetics and those struggling with various mental/physical impairments. The Occupational Therapy program at GPT is focused on applying effective methods that assist individuals in regaining or improving their functional abilities. The Occupational Therapist at GPT, Dan Clouston, is board-certified in upper extremity rehabilitation. Clouston effectively treats upper extremity conditions ranging from minor to complex. With the service of Occupational Therapy available from one of its expert staff members, Gillette Physical Therapy is more equipped to reach a wider population with their abilities in improving quality of life.
