An Introduction to Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy is a sort of therapy that aids patients in carrying out daily tasks. People with developmental difficulties, physical wounds, or mental health issues may benefit from it.
Anyone who is facing physical, psychological, and social issues—whether from "birth" or as a result of trauma, sickness, or aging—can benefit from occupational therapy. This includes infants, children, and adults. An occupational therapist has the best skills to increase a person's functional capacity and, consequently, their quality of life when they are unable to participate effectively in activities of daily living that are crucial to their quality of life and that we all take for granted, such as taking a shower, preparing a favourite meal, getting dressed, or going to work. This can help the individual develop or recover daily living and work skills, either through purposeful activity or via specialist aids and adaptations (Orthosis/ Splints and Prosthesis/ Artificial limbs) to lead independent, productive, and satisfying lives.
