Christene received occupational therapy at DOAR Central after suffering a nerve injury in her hand. She worked with Beth Neal, OTR/L and Lea Walters, COTA to restore functional movement in her hand. When Christene started occupational therapy, she could not use her hand at all. After beginning therapy, Christene’s use of her hand began to improve. Some of her goals when she started were to be able to button her buttons, hold her lunch tray, and put her hair in a ponytail, all of which she is now able to do. She is still working on tying her shoes, but she hopes to be able to accomplish that goal soon as well!
