About Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy helps people to gain a level of independence in their daily activities, tasks and life roles after having had any injury, illness or disability. Occupational Therapy helps a person to recover from any physical, developmental or emotional conditions and helps the individual to compensate when having to deal with loss of function. The therapist assesses and treats a person and helps them to cope in all their spheres in life for self care, home, domestic, work and leisure aspects.
