Learn more about our Battle Creek, MI, osteopractor Dr. Mohinder Chawdhry and how physical or occupational therapy might be right for you.

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a form of therapy designed to help patients treat or manage their symptoms, from pain and swelling to limited range of motion, while assisting them to rebuild and strengthen their bodies.

What is occupational therapy? 

Occupational therapy is a little different from physical therapy. Our Battle Creek, MI, osteopractor uses occupational therapy to help individuals recover from injuries, disorders, diseases and other conditions impacting their everyday activities. It also provides them with strategies, tips, and exercises that can help make these daily tasks a little easier. Occupational therapy can provide individuals with more independence over their lives, which is particularly beneficial for seniors.
