What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a specific discipline which aims to promote health and wellbeing through assisting people to perform meaningful and purposeful activities. These include home making, childcare, leisure activities and work. The process begins with a thorough holistic assessment of the client. Treatment goals and plans are then formulated and overseen in consultation with all relevant parties.
Therapy can be through practising and / or modifying activities. Where this is not possible we can recommend equipment and / or modifications to the environment assisting the person to be more independent and safer.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) treat both children and adults with various physical, psychological & psychiatric conditions. Occupational Therapy requires 3-4 years of training.
The goal of Occupational Therapy is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives by maximising their independence and quality of life.
Here at Ergo OTS we specialise in treating adults with physical disabilities, trauma related rehabilitation, pain management and housing adaptations. We offer a client centred approach.
