It’s time to celebrate Occupational Therapy Month, which is April in the U.S. Occupational Therapy Month is all about celebrating the holistic approach that OT has brought to healthcare.

When injury strikes or long term wear of joints and muscles require rehabilitation, an occupational therapist (also known as OTs) provides the necessary exercises to get us back into our daily routines. Simply getting out of bed may be a challenge or moving from one position to another becomes a problem we need to overcome. OTs have studied the movements required to make these transitions happen safely and to retrain our newly repaired body part to do the job. They know the therapies to help improve weakened muscles and alternatives when others fail us.

For every age and ability, occupational therapists provide care to improve the quality of life for each patient.

Occupational therapy month encourages people to find therapeutic ways to deal with daily tasks. An occupational therapist helps people of all ages to live life to the fullest by promoting health and living better with injuries or disabilities.

Taking certain steps to improve your office’s atmosphere and connection to your community will allow you to appreciate occupational therapy better as a field and the people in your workplace. Everyone should take part in celebrating Occupational Therapy Month.
