Helping Residents of North Arkansas & South Missouri
Baxter Regional Medical Center offers effective, personalized, and compassionate
occupational therapy services to all our patients. Our care is given to
those who have lost their ability to be independent due to neurological
or physical trauma, degenerative conditions, or developmental problems.
We help patients restore function by treating weakened or impaired muscle
abilities, physical endurance and mobility problems, visual impairments,
cognition and problem solving issues, and impaired sensorimotor functions.
We frequently treat individuals who have suffered impairments due to strokes,
brain injuries, or medical conditions.
Physically Rehabilitating Your Upper Extremity Dysfunction
We begin treatment with a thorough assessment of our patient’s upper
extremity impairment. The comprehensive treatment for this may include
rang-of-motion and strength exercises, the use of procedures for acute
or chronic pain, scar management, assessment and treatment of impaired
hand functionality, and training motor and coordination skills.
Orthotics & Splinting for Your Upper Extremities
Baxter Regional Medical Center offers a vast range of splinting patterns
and materials personalized to fit each patient’s individual lifestyle,
anatomy, and condition. These splints are available to treat our patients’
elbows, nerve lacerations, fingers, fractures, nerve compression syndrome,
acute trauma, hypermobility, joint contracture, sprains, and degenerative
changes. A majority of these splints can be created in an hour or less
and they are easily adjustable. Splints are generally removable in order
to allow for good hygiene practices, improved skin integrity, lessened
joint stiffness, and a small range of gentle motion exercises.
