WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ?
Occupational therapy aims to facilitate people in their journey to recovery and a swift return to work. It plays a pivotal role in enhancing job performance and overall well-being at the workplace. Occupational therapists work closely with clients to help them regain as much of their pre-injury independence, both socially and professionally.

HOW DOES AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY SESSION WORK ?
The occupational therapist assesses:
- The impact of an individual’s physical and mental health on various bodily functions and how these factors affect their ability to perform activities.
- The influence of the physical and social environment on a person’s ability to carry out activities.
- The specific characteristics of the person’s activities and daily routines.
- The level of independence the individual demonstrates in performing these activities.
- Prior to formulating a treatment or intervention plan, the occupational therapist examines the interplay among these elements, emphasizing the importance of considering both the individual and their surroundings and activities.
Subsequently, the occupational therapist works to enhance the individual’s engagement in activities they deem significant. Furthermore, the therapist involves the individual and their loved ones as key partners in setting objectives and determining intervention methods.
Collaboration with other professionals and practitioners is also a fundamental aspect of adopting an interdisciplinary approach.
