Occupational Therapy

Overview

Guthrie Occupational therapists serve individuals who have functional deficits from trauma, disease, intellectual disabilities and other impairments. These impairments hinder a person’s ability to be functionally independent and to participate in day-to-day activities. Therapists help the patient regain independence through problem solving, the use of adaptive equipment and conditioning to gain strength and coordination. Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on returning the individual to their highest level of functional independence.
