Nevada Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy, often abbreviated as "OT,” incorporates meaningful and purposeful therapies that will help people with limitations or impairments to participate in the activities of everyday life. In fact, occupational therapy equips patients with the skills for the job of daily living so that patients can live life to its fullest, regardless of past illness, injury or disability.

During the first and subsequent visits, our Nevada occupational therapists will review what activities are most important to the patient. Then, the occupational therapist will put together a treatment plan, including patient goals, that will address the physical, mental and social components of the activity, how to adapt the activity, and the environment required to enable the patient to resume that activity.

In other words, occupational therapists ask, "Why does this person have difficulties managing his or her daily activities (or occupations), and what can I do to make it possible for him or her to manage better and how will this then impact his or her health and well-being?”

Various occupational therapy modalities may be utilized during treatment, including traction, electrical stimulation, whirlpool, ultrasound, ice and heat, as well as therapeutic exercise and manual therapy.
