Occupational Therapy is a professional rehabilitation discipline that promotes health and well being through occupation.  The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life.  Occupational Therapists (OTs) achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation.

Common Types of Injuries

Occupational Therapists are trained to work with a variety of musculoskeletal injuries including upper extremity nerve compression (ie carpal tunnel syndrome), repetitive strain injuries (wrist tendonitis), wrist/finger fractures, tendon repairs and stroke rehabilitation.  OTs also assist patients after total joint replacements so that they can perform daily living skills with optimal independence using adaptive equipment and compensatory strategies until they have healed.
