Occupational therapy helps patients return to their independent lives. Occupational therapy is a task-oriented therapy that helps to restore your ability to perform the functions necessary for daily living, including personal self-care and homemaking, as well work and leisure activities. Treatment is focused on rehabilitation of the problem and prevention of further injury or deformity. What is the difference between PT and OT?
Many patients may have trouble dressing themselves, holding a pen, or getting in and out of a vehicle. This is where our skilled occupational therapists come in. Beebe's OTs will give you the skills you need for living. Treatment plans are individualized, each patient is evaluated and home visits are made, assessments of skills are done, and family members are included in the discussion of the best outcomes for the client.
Occupational therapists are skilled professionals who have studied human growth and development with specific emphasis on the social, emotional and physiological effects of illness and injury.
