What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy (OT) involves an occupational therapist who uses expertise to promote health, wellness, and quality of life for the patient by helping them stay engaged in the activities that are the most meaningful to them through enhancing skills or modifying the environment to support client participation.

For example, a meaningful activity to a child may be the ability to play with toys and friends. In this case, the OT would focus on hand strength and dexterity. For an adult, it may be the ability to make a meal independently, so the OT would introduce adapted equipment for the kitchen.

The OT collects the patient’s health information including the injury history and how this history has impacted necessary activities of daily life. Through collaboration with the client as well as a physician, surgeon, and the nursing staff, a plan of care for goals and treatment is created by the OT.
