Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy, also known as OT, works with patients of all ages, from children to elderly adults. An occupational therapist helps people maximize participation in activities that support daily living and engagement in meaningful activities. Occupational therapists are experts in surgical and conservative management of upper extremity orthopedic injuries, orthosis fabrication, and activity modifications.

Occupational therapists help a variety of professions, from construction workers to corporate jobs. However, OT is not limited to those in the workforce; it can benefit all types of individuals. OT helps children, students, stay-at-home parents, retirees, weekend warriors, and elite athletes achieve their goals and function at the highest level possible.

The Benefits of Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists make it possible for the injured to regain their independence by providing comprehensive care that takes into account their physical, psychological, social and emotional well-being. OT can improve health in many ways, which is a reason to celebrate! 

Health benefits include: 

  • Increased strength and endurance 
  • Increased range of motion 
  • Increased quality of life 
  • Decreased pain and discomfort 
  • Prevention of re-injury
