What is an Occupational Therapist?
Occupational therapy works to improve health and well-being. Occupational therapists are health professionals who help people of all ages prevent, lessen, or adapt to disabilities by using occupations and meaningful activities with specific goals. The tasks can be as simple as taking a bath or getting dressed or as complicated as using a computer with different control switches.
What to Expect from Occupational Therapy
The goal of occupational therapy is to help patients get back to normal function and mobility as quickly, easily, and safely as possible after they get home. Successfully regaining lost skills gives patients and their loved ones more freedom and a better quality of life.
Occupational services can include many things, including but not limited to the following:
Treats hand or upper arm injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, a stroke, tennis elbow, or an accident.
For people whose limbs are swollen more than usual because of cancer treatment or another medical condition. Occupational therapy teaches patients the skills to care for and control their condition.
Making these can be essential to getting better after an injury or surgery. Trained therapists make special splints that keep the area from moving and correct or prevent deformity so that the area can heal and work properly.
How Does Occupational Therapy Work?
There are many places where occupational therapy can be done. For example, suppose someone is in the hospital or a therapy center recovering from an injury or illness. In that case, they may get these services before they go home, as well as after they’ve gone home, to help them achieve their goals for recovery.
Occupational Therapy may be a necessary treatment for a medical condition such as:
Our occupational therapists can show patients how to get dressed and bathe. They can also suggest things like a raised toilet seat or a shower chair that can make life easier at home and keep people from falling and injuring themselves.
