What is Occupational Therapy?

 

Occupational Therapy is a holistic and integrative, client-centered, approach to rehabilitation. Essentially, occupational therapy treats orthopedic, neurological, cardiological, and physiological ailments and injuries using meaningful or ‘real-life’ activities and interventions instead of rote exercise to promote healing, recovery, and overall wellness. Most importantly, occupational therapy can help you in just about every area of your life using treatment approaches that are both educational and replicable in your every day life.

It is imperative you start an OT profile ASAP!

If you are 55 years or older, it may be in your best interest to contact an occupational therapist for a consult and/or evaluation to have a baseline before something happens. This is a crucial step in early detection of non age-related declines!
