Occupational therapy is a dynamic healthcare profession focused on helping individuals of all ages overcome physical, cognitive, or emotional challenges that hinder their ability to engage in daily activities. Occupational therapists work closely with clients to assess their unique needs and develop personalized treatment plans. These plans often involve activities and exercises that aim to improve fine and gross motor skills, enhance cognitive functions, and address psychological well-being. The ultimate goal is to empower individuals to regain independence and participate fully in their chosen occupations, whether it’s self-care, work, leisure, or community engagement.

Occupational therapy and physical therapy are related fields but have distinct focuses. Physical therapy primarily focuses on improving physical mobility, strength, and function, while occupational therapy concentrates on enhancing a person’s ability to perform daily activities and engage in meaningful tasks. OT often addresses cognitive, emotional, and environmental factors that impact daily functioning.
Occupational therapy sessions typically begin with an evaluation to assess your specific needs and goals. The therapist will create a customized treatment plan, which may include exercises, adaptive techniques, assistive devices, and environmental modifications. OT sessions may take place in a clinic, school, home, or workplace, depending on the client’s needs. The frequency and duration of therapy sessions will vary based on individual requirements and progress.
