Why Occupational Therapy?

Chronic illnesses such as heart disease, COPD, obesity, arthritis, joint pain, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes compromise our ability to perform even the simplest of daily tasks, such as sleeping, walking, climbing a flight of stairs, sitting in an airplane, getting up off the floor, or kneeling in church - just to name a few.  Occupational Therapists are positioned perfectly to provide these services/interventions because:

  • Occupational Therapists have a strong educational background of pathology, pathophysiology, psychology, neurology, and neuroanatomy as it relates to anatomy, movement and functional abilities.

  • Occupational Therapists are medically based licensed professionals who have strong expertise in recovery/rehabilitation from catastrophic illness, injury and disease.

  • Occupational Therapists have strong communication skills in promoting and motivating strategies and hard work!

  • Occupational Therapists can successfully develop trusting relationships and therefore provide a sense of safety.

  • Occupational Therapists can help to develop solutions and interventions to improve endurance, strength, flexibility, and balance to better perform our daily living activities to ultimately create a more balanced and enjoyable life.

  • Occupational Therapists have the advantage of frequent and lengthy contact with their clients/patients.

  • Occupational Therapists facilitate adaptation and organization of lifestyle changes as they relate to self care, home care, work, and leisure activities.

  • Occupational Therapists focus on helping people be more productive, happier, and healthier in their lives!
