Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

“In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).”

Occupational therapy provides a customized plan of care to restore life skills for all age groups with a focus on activities that are meaningful to the patient. Occupations look different for everyone but are essential to a good quality of life. Occupational therapy treatment addresses pain, injury, illness, limitation, or disability that makes it difficult to do a job or school work, care for yourself, complete household chores, move around, or participate in activities. Occupational therapy will also teach patients how to adapt to the environment and/or adapt the task to fit each patient’s needs.
