More about occupational therapy

Occupational therapy seeks to help you accomplish what you want and need, not what a medical provider thinks your recovery should entail. A skilled occupational therapist can help make everyday activities easier and more enjoyable. Patients learn how to adapt to their needs so they are better equipped for life’s demands.

While some medical treatments try to alleviate problems through broader relief, occupational therapy is targeted, helping patients tackle specific goals for daily activities, such as eating, getting dressed, showering, and completing homework or housework.

Many patients have anxiety about worsening their condition or developing new symptoms. Occupational therapists understand this, which is why treatment goals often include detailed plans and coping strategies to help you thrive. Some OTs even offer home visits to help make sure you have the correct adaptive equipment for everyday tasks. Your OT may also request that you bring photos from work or school so they can assess whether your layout is appropriate for your unique needs.

Occupational therapy can help you get back to doing the activities that you love. With help from a skilled therapist, you can practice ways to maintain your home, perform tasks at work, socialize with loved ones or care for family members and pets. Over time, you may notice that daily activities cause less pain and frustration when you follow the goals established by your occupational therapy practitioner.

If goals ever fail to meet your needs, let your therapist know. The OT specialist can adjust or remove goals so that your treatment plan always meets your expectations. Remember: an occupational therapist’s goal is to help you live your best life.
