Introducing occupational therapy clinic, Wellness Ave.

In celebration of World Occupational Therapy Day, October 27th, 2021, local Occupational Therapist, Dr. Kniquiah Hughes launched her occupational therapy services through her Wellness Ave. practice.

World Occupational Therapy Day was first launched on October 27, 2010 to promote and celebrate the profession internationally. Practitioners of Occupational Therapy use individualized evaluations and evidence-based interventions to assist persons of all ages by promoting health and helping them prevent or live with injury, illness or disability. Common interventions include assisting children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, assisting patients recovering from injuries and providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.

Dr. Hughes, whose focus is on children and geriatrics, is currently registered and licensed in the state of Florida, USA. Over the past eight years, she has accumulated varied experience in the treatment of patients of all ages in the United States.

Through her occupational therapy clinic, Wellness Ave., Dr. Hughes says that she will now be providing these services to her island, as there is a growing need to help improve the outcomes of the young and aging population.

Dr. Hughes will be receiving referrals from local doctors, physical therapists, speech therapists, psychologists, teachers and other practitioners for the treatment of stroke, motor vehicle accident, autistic, dementia and other persons with disabilities.

Dr. Hughes can be reached at telephone (264) 584-6100 or email address
