In this podcast we will explore the field of Occupational Therapy with practitioner Amanda E. Fleissner, OTR/L.
The American Occupational Therapy Association defines an occupational therapist as someone who "helps people across their lifespan participate in the things they want and/or need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. The Occupational therapists’ can provide assistance to those who want to improve their mental and or physical health, disabilities, injuries, or impairments.
We will get a deeper understanding of OT and how it can help make your life better by reliving pain, retraining your body alone with the restorage techniques used.
OT involves the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover, or maintain the meaningful activities, or occupations, of individuals, groups, or communities. The field of OT consists of health care practitioners trained and educated to improve mental and physical performance. Occupational therapists specialize in teaching, educating, and supporting participation in any activity that occupies an individual's time.
