Inverness, Crystal River, & Citrus Hills, FL
Physical and Occupational Therapy
Rehab Partners is an outpatient rehabilitation center that is staffed with Physical Therapists (PT), Physical Therapist Assistants (PTA), Occupational Therapists (OT) and Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTA). Our team of licensed therapists has a combined total of more than 310 years of experience and is ready to provide our patients with the highest quality of therapy care.
Our name arises from our belief that the patient should be a partner in the rehabilitation process, accepting responsibility for compliance with the treatment plan in order to achieve optimal recovery. The therapist is committed to educating the patient and providing the tools for success in attaining the best possible functional outcomes and quality of life, with results lasting long after the patient has graduated from therapy.
Our Therapists have successfully worked with all types of injuries and patients of all ages. We also have specialized programs for women’s health services and pelvic floor therapy.
While our staff members, like many of our patients, come from a variety of different geographic locations, many of our therapists have been an active part of the Citrus County medical community for more than 10 years; some have practiced here for more than 25 years! Thus, we have established longstanding relationships with area physicians, and are dedicated to working with them as part of your health care team.
What Is Occupational Therapy?
Most people have a pretty good general idea of what Physical Therapists do, but many people do not hear about Occupational Therapy until they need it.
The World Federation of Occupational Therapists states that, “Occupational therapy is as a profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation.”
In an outpatient orthopedic setting, OTs typically treat upper extremity issues including the shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands, while PTs treat necks, backs, hips, knees and feet. OT focuses on fine motor skills and activities of daily living, such as dressing, self-care and grooming; home-management skills; and return to leisure activities such as golf. They also assess the need for adaptive equipment and they custom-make hand and wrist splints.
There is some overlap between PT and OT, particularly with treatment of the shoulder. Both disciplines are qualified to provide appropriate care of the upper extremities, and the referring physician usually specifies which discipline is preferred for the diagnosis. However, during consultation with the doctor, patients may specifically request a referral to OT services; this is common if a patient has previously had OT.
Some insurance plans do not cover OT services. In these cases, PT will provide all necessary care for upper extremity conditions.
