At Theradynamics Physical & Occupational Therapy, we recognize the importance of sensory performance in the rehabilitation process. That’s why we incorporate Sensory Performance Training (SPT) as a key component of our therapy programs. SPT is a specialized approach that focuses on enhancing sensory processing and integration to improve overall functional abilities and performance.

Here’s how we utilize Sensory Performance Training at Theradynamics:

1. Assessment: Our experienced therapists begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment of your sensory processing abilities. This evaluation helps us identify any sensory deficits or challenges that may be impacting your daily activities, motor skills, and overall function.

2. Individualized Treatment Plans: Based on the assessment results, we develop individualized treatment plans that target specific sensory processing difficulties. We take into account your unique goals, challenges, and preferences to create a personalized program that addresses your needs effectively.

3. Sensory Integration Activities: We employ a variety of sensory integration activities to stimulate and challenge your sensory system. These activities may include therapeutic exercises, balance and coordination exercises, tactile stimulation, vestibular activities, and proprioceptive input. By engaging your senses in a controlled and structured manner, we aim to improve sensory integration and enhance your overall performance.

4. Environmental Modifications: Our therapists work closely with you to identify any environmental factors that may be contributing to sensory overload or discomfort. We provide guidance on making appropriate modifications to your environment, such as adjusting lighting, noise levels, or seating arrangements, to create a more supportive and sensory-friendly setting.

5. Adaptive Equipment and Assistive Devices: In some cases, we may recommend the use of adaptive equipment or assistive devices to facilitate sensory processing and functional performance. These tools can provide additional sensory input or support, helping you better engage with your environment and activities.

6. Progressive Challenges: As you progress in your therapy journey, we gradually increase the complexity and difficulty of sensory tasks and activities. This progressive approach helps train your sensory system to adapt and respond more efficiently to various stimuli, promoting improved sensory processing and integration over time.

7. Collaboration and Education: We believe in empowering you and your caregivers with knowledge and understanding of sensory processing. Throughout the therapy process, we provide education and guidance on sensory strategies, self-regulation techniques, and home exercises to facilitate continued progress and carry-over of skills into everyday life.

By incorporating Sensory Performance Training into our therapy programs, we aim to enhance your sensory processing abilities, promote efficient integration of sensory information, and ultimately improve your overall functional performance and quality of life. Our skilled therapists are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of care and support as you navigate your sensory challenges and reach your therapy goals.
