Occupational therapist help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Occupational therapy services typically include: an individualized evaluation, customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach goals.
Physical therapists (PTs) help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility. They can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so they can achieve long term health benefits. Physical therapist examine each patient and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, and restore function. PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Speech-language pathologists assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent communication and swallowing disorders in patients. Speech, language, and swallowing disorders result from a variety of causes, such as stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, and dementia. Other aspects treated by speech therapists are cognitive linguistic impairments such as memory, problem solving, safety awareness, and other impairments that are affecting activities of daily living; difficulty articulating words or using expressive language.
