Occupational Therapy

The experienced occupational therapists at FYZICAL West Princeton can help you achieve your goals of performing all activities, including your daily activities, such as eating, cooking, cleaning, and dressing, and more advanced activities—such as driving and using machinery—with ease.

What Is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is a field of medicine that helps you do the things you need and want to do in your everyday life. Occupational therapy helps you develop, recover, or maintain the skills you need to live a healthy life. Occupational therapists (OTs) work with individuals who have physical, mental, or developmental challenges that affect their ability to perform daily activities.

Your occupational therapist assesses your abilities and goals and designs an individualized treatment plan to meet your needs. This may involve a comprehensive home and job site evaluation. After your evaluation, your occupational therapist will help you to adapt to your environment and offer guidance on specialized equipment or devices to make it easier for you to perform activities in your home and at your workplace. Your occupational therapist will also guide individuals working or living with you on how they can help you achieve your goals.

Benefits of Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps you do the things you need and want to do. It will help you adapt to your environment, decrease your pain, improve function, and enhance your overall well-being and quality of life.
