Occupational Therapy


The Portland Clinic’s occupational therapy department is here to help you regain and build skills that are important for independent functioning and living due to an orthopedic, neurological, or cognitive disorder. Our goal is to help you achieve maximum independence and to enhance your quality of life to the fullest. Occupational therapy provides intervention to help regain function, maintain function or make accommodations for deficits you may be experiencing.
