What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is a form of treatment that can help children and people of all ages with pain, injury, illness, or a disability that makes it difficult to do important daily tasks. An occupational therapist, or OT, will help you develop new ways of doing common tasks such as schoolwork, specific functions of your job, household chores, or even participating in physical activities.

Our dedicated team of occupational therapists helps individuals adapt to perform the tasks they want and need to do either through modification of activities or with the use of assistive devices.

How Does Occupational Therapy Work?

We’ll start by conducting an individualized skilled evaluation. We will confirm your goals and create a tailored treatment plan for you. We regularly conduct evaluations throughout treatment to ensure the plan is effective and that the goals are being met. Adjustments to treatment or plan are made as needed.

Each individual is unique when it comes to treatment, and ultimately our goal is to ensure you’re able to do the important things to you.

Can Occupational Therapy help me?

Occupational Therapy can be an effective treatment for anyone – at any age – who is struggling to perform daily tasks. As with any treatment, the level of injury will influence results. We work with patients who have mild, moderate, and even severe issues to get you back to doing important things in life.

Working with an “OT” can give you the tools to feel more independent and help you perform tasks more easily or with less pain.
