About Physical Therapists (PTs) and Occupational Therapists (OTs)
Physical therapists (PTs) can help improve or restore the mobility you need to move forward with your life. PTs are primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments and disabilities and the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention. If you are looking for a possible alternative to surgery and/or pain medication, to recover after surgery, or to simply take care of that nagging injury, consider a physical therapist.
Occupational therapists (OTs) help people of all ages to improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments. They work with individuals who have conditions that are mentally, physically, developmentally, socially or emotionally disabling. They also help them to develop, recover, or maintain daily living and work skills. Occupational therapists help clients not only to improve their basic motor and reasoning abilities, but also to compensate for permanent loss of function. OT also plays a major role in the rehabilitation and recovery of patients who have hand or upper extremity injuries. They play a significant role in liasing with Hand Surgeon/Orthopeadic Surgeon and patients employers or case managers in providing the best client centered rehabilitation program. Occupational Therapist treats conditions ranging from overuse to post-surgical conditions of the upper extremity. Treatment modalities such as orthoses/splints, soft braces and education are some of the common treatment tool that an occupational therapist will use during treatment. Hand Therapy is a specialized field of occupational therapy and it requires therapist to be highly skilled and knowledgeable in upper limb anatomy to be able to work in this area.
