Chronic Care Management

As a client of Chicago Movement Specialists, you have an option to enroll in our chronic care management service. Chronic care management encompasses the oversight and education activities of patients to help them with their chronic diseases and health conditions. We proactively monitor your possible fluctuation of symptoms as well as your medication management, falls, safety and physical symptoms as they impact your daily life.

What is required if I enroll?

Consent for treatment, as well as a quick, monthly phone call from our staff.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is the only profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability.  We improve activities of daily living through exercise, movement, therapeutic activity amongst other interventions.

Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science. 

Our occupational therapist also provides clinical driver’s evaluations for clients who are taking steps to returning to driving as well as home modification consultations for clients who want to safely age in place in their home. 

Our occupational therapist is a NAHB certified aging in place specialist. Please contact us for inquiries regarding consultations for safety modifications for your home!

Neurology Movement Disorders

We evaluate and treat all forms of movement disorders by taking a detailed history and performing a neurological examination. Based on possible diagnoses, a workup may be performed (scans, blood tests, etc.). If needed, a treatment plan will also be formulated at that time.

Home Modification Services

Our occupational therapist is a Certified Aging in Place Specialist and has worked with the National Association of Home Builders to obtain her certification. If your family has found it difficult to navigate your home due to age or diagnosis, our occupational therapist can help via adaptive equipment, durable medical equipment, or remodeling recommendations to allow your home to become more accessible. Please call us for questions or inquiries regarding a consultation!

Botox

Dr. Sachin Kapur is a BOTOX® specialist and we currently offer BOTOX® as a treatment for dystonia, sialorrhea, spasticity, hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm, writers cramp, and any type of focal dystonia. We currently utilize BOTOX®, myobloc, dysport, and xeomin as types of botulinum toxin.

What are Botulinum Neurotoxin injections?

Botulinum neurotoxin injections are a localized treatment to relieve dystonia symptoms.  Botulinum neurotoxin (BNT), a biological product, is injected into muscles where it relaxes the muscles and reduces excessive muscle contractions.

Are there side effects?

Temporary side effects may include muscle weakness, flu-like symptoms, pain at the injection site, and dry mouth. Ask Dr. Kapur about additional side effects that may be specific to your situation.

Are the injections painful?

While it is patient specific, we have methods at the clinic to make you more comfortable. 

How long do the injections last?

10-12 weeks.

Does insurance cover it?

Yes, but we need pre-approval for completion of BOTOX® prior to your visit. This is completed in our office by our staff. 

Are there any allergic reactions to BOTOX®?

It’s extremely unlikely. Dr. Kapur has never experienced reactions during his injection history. 

clinical drivers evaluations

Clinical Driver’s Evaluations

These evaluations are completed in the clinic with our occupational therapist. To book a physician’s referral for a Clinical Drivers Exam/Evaluation is needed prior to booking. Click here to download the evaluation document to get started. 

What is the purpose of Clinical Drivers Evaluations?

Primary care providers are often asked to make decisions about a person’s ability to drive. Chicago Movement Specialist’s Clinical Driver Evaluation will assess skills needed for safe driving and provide a summary of the test results for the referring provider.

Clinical Driver’s Evaluations take approximately 60-90 minutes at the clinic.
