Occupational Therapy

When an accident or illness interferes with the active process of living, including work, and leisure, occupational therapy strives to help people participate in life’s activities again.

Role specific therapeutic activities facilitate strengthening, re-learning, problem-solving use of adaptive devices and patient/family education.
