Occupational Therapy is a branch of rehabilitative medicine that specifically focuses on restoring an individual’s normal functioning in the “everyday events” of life.
OT designs treatment programs that focus on daily routines, provide more independence in the home or work environments, and helps develop more confidence in the “little” things an individual may struggle with.
Occupational Therapy is primarily for individuals recovering from stroke or heart attack, brain or spinal cord injuries, mental health or behavioral problems, cognitive functioning, developmental problems or birth defects, burns, motor skills, ergonomics, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, etc.
What is the difference between occupational therapy and physical therapy? The University of St. Augustine describes it this way. “Occupational therapy is used to help or regain patients’ ability to perform day-to-day tasks on their own, and physical therapy is used to improve patients’ ability to move their bodies and manage their pain.”
