Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) helps people with disabilities to return to their life roles through the use of therapeutic methods, applied and assistive technology, and environmental modifications.

According to findings from recent randomized controlled studies:

  • Occupational therapy shortens recovery time, improves function, and helps people become self-sufficient.
  • Occupational therapy assessment and intervention reduces the risk of a fall in elderly patients to 39%.
  • Occupational therapy significantly reduces disability in people who have strokes.
  • Seventy-five percent of nursing home residents who receive OT have positive outcomes.
  • Five or more occupational and physical therapy sessions per week can lead to better outcomes in patients with hip fracture.
