Best Comeback
“ After being injured at another hospital and following the mandated 90 days of workman's comp policies, I came straight to Coordinated Health Rehab and received nothing but the best! The exercises and stretches were superior. I rehabbed quickly and was back to unrestricted duties in no time! Coordinated Health is really the best! I recommend them to every one! ”

Hand Therapy with the BEST OT TEAM ever
“ My story began in Mexico with a fall on marble tile. It continued with a brace to allow tendons in my hand to heal. I wore a brace for six long weeks on my right hand. I was so excited when the brace came off and then realized my hand was stuck and did not move or function the way a normal hand should. I learned how to do many common tasks with my left hand. It was not fun and very frustrating at times. I must admit it really stretched my patience at times. Fortunately for me I went to Coordinated Health and the team of occupational therapists from Bethlehem and Easton helped me. I worked with Denice, Dave, Stephanie, and Ben. Every one of these therapists helped me on my journey to a functional hand. They were all very supportive as I learned how to make my fingers and thumb work again. Simple things like opening a jar, turning a key, and turning a door knob were a challenge. But here’s something to keep in mind-tell the therapist what you want to do and he/she will give you an activity to help achieve it. All of the therapists I worked with have a sense of humor. When I first started with a clothes pin activity to pick up marbles I inadvertently had Dave scrambling to pick up the ones that escaped my grip. All the therapists listened and sometimes laughed at my method of doing my exercises in a practical manner. For instance, instead of picking up coins, I picked up M & M’s for decorating my M & M cookies. It seriously improved my fine motor skills. Getting my fingers stronger was very therapeutic. The best part was pounding the clay with a round peg. One of the most important things about therapy is the patient needs to do therapy at home and be seriously invested in healing. Some days I was just not in the mood to play with clay so I did the next best thing: I made cookie dough and yeast dough for cinnamon buns. I am very grateful to all my therapists. You all cared about me and helped me recover from the worst injury I have had in my life. Thank you very much! ”
