Ann Dahl is our Occupational Therapist at Wieber Physical Therapy.
Occupational Therapy has been a health care profession for over 100 years! Occupational Therapists help people of all ages across the lifespan live life to the fullest. We assist people in recovering from injury through rehabilitation techniques that address the physical body, the cognitive/emotional/mind, and the social/environmental aspect of coping with changes from injury that commonly occur in the home, work, and community settings in which people live. We also focus on prevention and health promotion! Occupational Therapy views humans through a holistic lens addressing all aspects of life.
Ann has an extensive background in Occupational Therapy. This includes clinical treatment, health promotion/prevention and research that primarily focuses on treating conditions that affect the hand and upper extremity. These usually stem from musculoskeletal and neurological conditions/injuries. She is available for treatment and consultations on practically any condition that may be currently a barrier to you living life to your fullest!
