What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy uses everyday life activities (occupations) to promote health, well-being, and your ability to participate in the important activities in your life. This includes any meaningful activity that a person wants to accomplish, including taking care of yourself and your family, working, volunteering, going to school, etc. Occupational therapists use a wide variety of treatments to help recover, rebuild, or teach new ways of doing activities that will allow you to regain your independence in the things that you love to do!
