What Is occupational therapy?


Occupational therapy is a specific therapy that is provided to patients who are experiencing pain, illness, injury, or a disability that can make it difficult for them to continue their job, care for themselves, do school, do household chores, take part in activities, and generally just move around.

Occupational therapy teaches you to adapt and will help you to perform many tasks that need to be completed within your home, at work, or at school. You will be able to learn to use tools including assistive devices if necessary to complete these tasks.

You will meet with one of our health professionals known as an occupational therapist to start working with them to change your movements so you are able to complete anything that comes up that you may need to work on, including specific things like:

• Eating without the necessary help from others
• Enjoying and taking part in leisurely activities
• Office work
• Bathing yourself and getting yourself dressed
• Completing laundry and cleaning up your home

Occupational therapists have completed specialty training within occupational therapy, they are licensed and have completed and passed a national exam to practice in the province they reside in.

Certain occupational therapists may continue their educational route to complete certain focuses of treatment including treating individuals with low vision, physiotherapy, and working specifically with children or older adults.
