What is occupational therapy?

People of all ages that suffer from motor and psychomotor disabilities will need an occupational therapist. They perform various activities and exercises with the patient to incorporate them into a normal lifestyle according to their environment and needs. These activities and methodology focus on adapting the patient to their new lifestyle and being as functional as possible on their own.

Who needs occupational therapy?

Occupational therapists treat a wide range of people with different impairments. These can be physiological or psychological impairments. They can treat the following disabilities and similar:

  • People that suffered a CVA (cerebrovascular accident)

  • Traumatic injuries to the brain or spinal cord

  • Patients with partial paralysis

  • Learning problems

  • Autism

  • Arthritis

What are some occupational therapy tasks?

It is essential to point out that OT (occupational therapy) differs from physical therapy (PT) in the sense that the latter focuses on rehab (increasing mobility and stopping or preventing further loss of capacities). In contrast, occupational therapy focuses on teaching patients new techniques and methods to live with this impairment or illness.

These can be activities such as

  • Teaching the person how to dress (button their shirt with one hand, for example)

  • Learning how to cook

  • Enhancing the patient’s home with adaptations to improve independence (this maximizes confidence and comfort in the patient)

Every healthcare practitioner should have a good relationship with the patient, but occupational therapists probably excel at this. They need to build trust with the patient, so they can know the person’s feelings, fears, and frustrations to inform the doctors and other healthcare practitioners. This relationship between patient and therapist is undoubtedly an essential aspect of OT.
