Every April, we celebrate Occupational Therapy Month to honor this vital profession and the meaningful differences it makes in the lives of our clients.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a science-driven, evidence-based profession that enables people of all ages to participate in daily living or live better with injury, illness, or disability. This is accomplished through designing strategies for everyday living and customizing environments to develop and maximize potential.
Occupational therapy assists people in:
- Achieving their goals
- Functioning at the highest possible level
- Concentrating on what matters most
- Maintaining or rebuilding their independence
- Participating in the everyday activities that they need to do or that simply make life worth living
Occupational therapists and rehabilitation therapists use a wide range of techniques and approaches, including physical therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and assistive technology, to help their clients regain strength, function, and independence. Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants are experts in helping people perform the occupations they need and want to do every day.
The goal of the Occupational Therapy program at Northwest Return to Work is to assist clients in maximizing their functional capacities, enabling them to participate as fully as possible in valued occupations and required job tasks.
Occupational Therapy might be the right program for you if:
- You have a recent or chronic bodily injury that impacts your daily function.
- You are not able to participate in meaningful or necessary activities without pain or limitation after an injury.
- You have made progress in Physical Therapy but are still struggling with the tasks of daily life.
