And Success In Day To Day Tasks
What is Occupational Therapy?
Many of us—children, teens, parents, entrepreneurs, retirees—have ways our brains and our bodies limit our capacity to execute our days.
Occupational Therapy has tools to help us thrive anyway.
Occupational therapy helps people of all ages do the things they want and need to do (called “occupations”).
What Occupational Therapists do
Our occupational therapists (OTs) look at all the areas of your life including your mobility, self care, home care, finances, time management, sleep & rest, work, school, and fun!
Any of these can be affected by physical limitations, cognitive issues, or social-emotional challenges. We'll design a customized plan or strategies, activities, or therapies based on your specific circumstances.
These could include:
Soft tissue modalities and manual therapy techniques to help with pain.
Education around adaptations, adaptive movement, and adaptive equipment to adjust to movement restrictions or limitations.
Cognitive strategies, executive planning, energy conservation, and routines to help you get through your day successfully.
Nervous system regulation to help with sensory integration and adaptations to your environment.
Ergonomic training for improved posture leading to decreased pain and improved comfort, energy flow, and circulation.
Strategizing optimal management of your day

“After a debilitating concussion, I knew I needed expert help. Occupational Therapy really helped me with the skills I needed to go about my day in a different way so my brain could heal—and I could still be successful at work and support my family.”
