Occupational therapists have a holistic approach to help people of all ages get back to the lifestyle they want despite injury or physical limitations.

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy (OT) is the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover, or maintain meaningful activities, or occupations. In outpatient therapy, occupational therapists commonly work with the following:

Upper quarter injuries (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand)

  • pediatric clients
  • Geriatric clients


Occupational therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the client’s home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training for its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers. Occupational therapists have a holistic perspective in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team.
