Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy at Town Physical Therapy

Occupational therapy treatment includes improving the patient’s posture, range of movement, muscle strength and endurance. Occupational therapists train patients to use compensatory strategies to do daily tasks more easily or to substitute one movement with another.
We here at Town Physical Therapy Centre offer specialized training in hand therapy, after all our expert physical therapists understand that the health of your hands are vital to everyday function. No matter what you are planning on doing with your day be it something as routine as a shower or as vigorous as a trip to the gym your hands will inevitably play a vital role. Occupational therapists evaluate the ability of patients to perform tasks necessary to function independently at work, school, home or in social settings. Often times, this means evaluating the ability to perform household tasks.

Being able to safely and efficiently complete tasks necessary for everyday life is relevant to most patients who have an injury or illness. Occupational therapy (OT) involves a number of treatment strategies including:

Most people have heard the term occupational therapist, but few know about the work they do. If you are looking for a career path that gives you the opportunity to help people on an individual level and really make a difference then occupational therapy may be for you.
Occupational therapy is often misunderstood because people see it as “work” but it’s actually the opposite. Occupational therapists assess, plan, and implement interventions to enable patients to achieve their maximum ability to function independently, at home, school or work.
