Occupational Therapy Month

by TOI Admin April 2, 2014

The month of April is designated as Occupational Therapy Month by the American Occupational Therapy Association to call attention to the important role occupational therapists play in patient care. Occupational therapists are part of an important profession to help patients participate in certain tasks they want and need to accomplish through the therapeutic use of daily activities. Occupational therapists focus on treatment to help develop, recover and maintain the daily skills of patients with specialized services and support. TOI would like to give a special thank you to its hand therapy staff at all of its locations!

Orthopaedics and the Aging Athlete

by TOI Admin May 10, 2013

By Maritza Manressa

According to Dr. Michael K. Riley, Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon, at The Orthopaedic Institute in Ocala, the older athlete has a higher predisposition to chronic injuries, adding that the most common injuries in the aging athlete are related to overuse and repetitive microtrauma. For instance, golfers’ most common issues are problems with the rotator cuff, medial epicondylitis, which is an injury that affects the tendons in the elbow due to overuse, and inflammation of wrist tendons. Rotator cuff tears are also very common among tennis players and for those softball players – watch out for muscle strain and meniscal tears. Lastly, aging athletes who have been training most of their lives are certainly more vulnerable to developing osteoarthritis, which is the degeneration of the weight bearing joints, than the common folk.
