What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapists (OTs) focus on daily tasks, the roles and routines that fill up a person’s day and give meaning to who we are as individuals. Tasks that were once effortless can become challenging following an acute or chronic injury. Ignite Rehab’s OTs critically assess their patient’s tasks, the occupations of their life, and create a customized treatment plan to achieve the patient-specific goals.
