Occupational Therapist are a vitally important profession that helps people participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Occupational Therapists have studied the movements required to make these transitions happen safely and to retrain our newly repaired body part to do the job. They know the therapies to help improve weakened muscles and alternatives when others fail us. Their customized approach to evaluations, interventions, and outcomes help a child with disabilities participate in school and in social situations, assist a person recovering from injuries to regain skills, aid an older adult to stay as independent as possible. This month we observe Occupational Therapy Month in recognition to all occupational therapists.
