Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy focuses on helping clients gain or re-gain the ability to participate in their activities of daily living. Since we use our arms and hands to participate in our daily activities, you will often see occupational therapy treatment focus on upper body function. OTs can address visual, cognitive, and physical skill deficits, make adaptive equipment recommendations, and provide modification strategies in order to optimize performance, independence, and satisfaction with life occupations.

If you or a loved one has suffered from an accident or other traumatic event, you may have experienced a loss of or difficulty with fine motor skills, such as bathing, dressing or eating. These everyday life abilities are essential for a person’s independence, and therefore should be a top priority in the recovery process.

Occupational therapy can help anyone who has experienced an interruption to their development, who has an acute or traumatic injury, or who has a chronic or progressive condition. If a patient’s mobility is impacted by any one of these, OT can help them rehabilitate.
