What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is beneficial when trauma, disease, intellectual disabilities, and other impairments make it challenging for you to do everyday tasks and activities you enjoy. When you are experiencing a functional deficit, our occupational therapists (OT) help you regain your independence through problem solving, the use of adaptive equipment and conditioning to gain strength and coordination.
