What is Occupational Therapy?

The CPT Difference

Occupational therapy is a health profession which is science-driven and evidence based. The goal of occupational therapy is to promote the achievement of personal independence and quality of life for each individual. Occupational therapists are highly trained practitioners who have completed a full course of study at a college or university and have successfully passed a national examination.

Occupational therapists work with individuals across their entire lifespan. They work with people who may have experienced an injury or an illness or are living with a disability (physical or cognitive) which is having a negative impact on their ability to complete any number of meaningful activities in their daily lives. Occupational therapy assists people facing such challenges to get back to the “job of living” at home, school, work or play.

Occupational therapy can be beneficial to individuals experiencing challenges from conditions including but not limited to:

  • Lymphedema
  • Neurological accident (stroke)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Joint replacement
  • Amputation
  • Work injury
