Warwick, N.Y. (Nov 2, 2016)— Access Physical Therapy & Wellness is pleased to announce that it has expanded its occupational therapy services with St. Anthony Community Hospital Center for Physical Rehabilitation in Warwick.  St. Anthony Community Hospital is a part of Bon Secours Charity Health System, a Member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network.

Cynthia Boccia, OTR/L, and Kaitlyn Sardo, COTA/L, with a combined 25 years of experience in the field of occupational/hand therapy, from the Goshen office of Access Physical Therapy & Wellness will now be working with patients at St. Anthony Community Hospital Center for Physical Rehabilitation in Warwick.

“We’re happy to be working with St. Anthony Community Hospital to provide their patients with occupational therapy services. This will help expedite their rehabilitation and get them back to engaging in their day-to-day activities,” said Boccia. “We’re also promoting our #ChooseOT campaign, which encourages those who are dealing with chronic pain to manage their pain through occupational therapy techniques, rather than masking it with dangerous opioid pain medications.”

Occupational therapy is an evidence-based practice, meaning that the plan designed for an individual is backed up by experience, data, and the best practices that have been proven over time. It enables people of all ages to live life by helping them promote health, and prevent or live better with illness, injury, or disability.

Occupational therapy is a health care profession aimed at enabling people to live life to its fullest. To occupational therapists, a “full” life means engagement in the activities that a person wants and needs to do, no matter what injury, illness, condition or disability they face. Boccia and Sardo specialize in UE injuries associated with the elbow, wrist and hand.
