Occupational therapists (OTs) use purposeful and meaningful daily activities that fill a person’s time or his or her “occupation.”
This may include:
- Self care
- Play or leisure
- At work and/or home
- Community tasks
OTs often work with patients who have lost independence due to an illness, disease, or trauma. Family education is an important part of the OT’s role.
What conditions does OT help?
- Hand trauma, injury, and musculoskeletal injuries
- Neuro-rehab patients from children to adults
- Post-mastectomy patients or patients undergoing cancer treatment
- Work injuries
- People lacking independence in their home
The Rehab Center’s occupational therapists are licensed by the state of Nebraska and certified through the American Occupational Association. The OTs have achieved specialty/advanced training in the areas of lymphedema management, driving rehabilitation, functional capacity evaluations, and ergonomic assessment.
