About Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy helps people to gain a level of independence in their daily activities, tasks and life roles after having had any injury, illness or disability. Occupational Therapy helps a person to recover from any physical, developmental or emotional conditions and helps the individual to compensate when having to deal with loss of function. The therapist assesses and treats a person and helps them to cope in all their spheres in life for self care, home, domestic, work and leisure aspects.
Niki Singh Occupational Therapist Practice
Niki Singh Occupational Therapist Practice opened on 1st December 2008. It commenced with inpatient therapy work at Netcare St Augustines Hospital. The focus was physical and hand rehabilitation of both adults and children. Niki Singh Occupational Therapist Practice continues to incorporate both inpatient therapy as well as outpatient therapy to its patients and clients, so that Occupataional Therapy is more accessible.
The in patient division is predominantly at Netcare St Augustines Hospital in Glenwood as well as Netcare Parklands Hospital in Overport. Therapy is also provided to four other private hospitals within the vicinity on request and per availability of the therapist.
The outpatient therapy division of "Niki Singh Occupational Therapy Practice" focuses on all acute and chronic conditions that require either hand rehabilitation or physical rehabilitation. This includes treatment of all people of all ages from neonatal to geriatrics.
Note that the practice unfortunately does not provide therapy for patients with psychiatric conditions as well as children with learning disabilities and attention disorders. Patients will be referred to appropriate therapists practising in those fields.
