Occupational Therapy (OT) assists individuals in achieving greater independence in all areas of life. “Occupations” include any meaningful activity of an individual’s everyday life. An OT’s role is to assist people in performing these activities with the greatest extent of independence possible, which will facilitate satisfying and productive living.

According to AOTA, adults with the following medical problems may benefit from OT:

  • Work-related injuries including lower back problems or repetitive stress injuries
  • Limitations following a stroke or heart attack
  • Arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or other serious chronic conditions
  • Birth injuries, learning problems, or developmental disabilities
  • Mental health or behavioral problems including Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, and posttraumatic stress
  • Problems with substance use or eating disorders
  • Burns, spinal cord injuries, or amputations
  • Broken bones or other injuries from falls, sports injuries, or accidents
