What is Occupational Therapy (OT)?
OT’s help their clients find function, balance and satisfaction in life. An OT focuses on physical, social and emotional well-being. Every person is completely unique and OT is a holistic therapeutic approach to health and wellness. An OT can help individuals engage in whatever matters most to them and meets their personal needs. For example; help moms strengthen the pelvic floor after child birth so that she can jump and play with her child or go to that jazzercise class with confidence. An OT can show her clients stretches and strengthening exercises for the chest, back and core for moms who suffer from muscle tension and poor posture after spending so much time holding and nursing their little ones in those inevitably strange positions.
