Occupational Therapists (OTs) also have different types of specialties. OTs can specialize in upper extremity injuries (shoulder, elbow, wrist / hand) but this is not all they do!
OTs can help with:
- Your ability to complete activities of daily living (ADLs)
- Complete tasks around your house or community
- Help with energy conservation
- Assist with organization and management of life skills
- Driving – driving simulators and evaluations
OTs are detail oriented providers and have many talents. If you are struggling post injury and haven’t sought an evaluation with an OT yet, give one who specializes in these areas a try!
