What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy helps individuals regain the ability to participate in important everyday activities and lead fulfilling lives. Individuals may differ in age or may be affected by various disabilities, illnesses, or injuries. Occupational therapists work closely with individuals to assess their specific needs and develop tailored strategies to improve their independence and overall well-being.
Occupational therapy is focused on helping individuals in activities, such as self-care tasks, work-related duties, and leisure pursuits. It’s also recommended for individuals who want to rebuild or maintain their independence, whether they’re using assisted devices or acting solely on their own. Therapists employ various techniques, including adaptive equipment and therapeutic exercises, to improve fine motor skills, cognition, and emotional regulation. Individuals who value everyday activities like visiting family, driving, and gardening should reach out to the occupational therapy team at Schneck.
