It really has nothing to do with your job. Occupational Therapy is more about helping people do things they want and need to do through therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations – that’s where that word came from). Common occupational therapy interventions may include therapy to recapture skills and strengthen joints and muscles after surgery or hospitalization. Our therapists teach people how to cope with the loss of a function and methods to regain it to make daily tasks more routine and less challenging. We help patients improve in daily tasks such as bathing, dressing and basic household activities. Therapists can recommend adaptations to make the home safer and establish a daily routine for important tasks.
