What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is focused on helping you directly practice and perform the skills and activities you perform at home and at work. Occupational therapy programs may be focused around simple tasks such as writing, eating, personal hygiene, and other basic activities. For some patients they also extend to more complex tasks such as driving a car, using a computer, and performing activities that are specific to your career.

  • Occupational therapy begins with identifying skills and tasks that may be more difficult due to an injury or illness.
  • Your occupational therapist works to identify strategies that will allow you to accomplish these tasks more easily.
  • You and the therapist work together to practice these and related skills.
  • A critical part of this process is identifying what works and what doesn’t. Your therapist takes your feedback and their observations, further personalizing these tasks and strategies for you.

What Happens During an Occupational Therapy Session at Sierra Care?

The exact activities that make up an occupational therapy session at Sierra Care are personalized to you and your needs. These activities are not simply exercises or routines that you perform several times at each session. Occupational therapy program activities are personalized, and change as you progress with your therapy. Some common examples are:

  • Handwriting training and practice for patients with hand injuries.
  • Skills focused on safely carrying heavy loads after an injury.
  • Practicing the safe operation of a car with weakness or injury to an arm or leg.
  • Adaptations that allow for cooking, cleaning, yardwork, and other activities around the house.

While these activities may sound easy, nothing can be taken for granted after an injury or illness. By practicing these basic skills you are able to reclaim your independence. Many of these skills are stepping stones to more complex skills that will allow you to excel at school or in the workplace after your injury or illness.
