What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is an evidence-based practice that focuses on helping individuals of all ages to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Our highly-trained occupational therapists specialize in various areas, including hand therapy, to address a wide range of conditions and challenges.
