PHYSICAL THERAPY Vs OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY
Here at WholePerson Therapeutics, we pride ourselves on educating everyone. Below we have provided clarification on the focus of occupational therapy and physical therapy services.
“Physical Therapy (PT)” means corrective rehabilitation provided by licensed practitioners through the use of physical, chemical and other properties of heat, light, water, electricity, sound, massage and active, passive and active exercise.
“Occupational Therapy (OT)” is the restoration, modification, compensation, or adaptation of skills and/or abilities, to increase an individual’s capacity in the performance of any and all activities. It focuses on the factors that may impede or restrict the ability to function independently at home, in the community, work or leisure. Treatment is performed by a licensed practitioner who uses appropriate equipment, modalities, and physical activities to encourage rehabilitation.
