What Is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is designed to complement the rehabilitation process by assisting patients in regaining everyday functionality. Administering occupational therapy requires practitioners to carefully examine each patient’s unique situation before creating a customized plan, which may involve a range of activities developed to improve certain abilities that are essential to work, personal care or leisure. Occupational therapy may benefit patients facing a range of conditions, including, but not limited to:
- Heart attack and stroke recovery
- Surgery recovery
- Developmental disorders
- Loss of coordination or ability due to age
