Occupational Therapy at Strides Maplewood

A key service offered at Strides Maplewood is Occupational Therapy. Many understand the services offered by a Physical Therapist, but are uncertain about the difference between occupational therapy and physical therapy.

What is Occupational Therapy?

In basic terms, occupational therapy provides assistance to people so that they can participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping people recovering from injury to regain skills and providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. An important tool used in occupational therapy services may include questions about or comprehensive evaluations of the patients home, work or other environments. By gaining a better understanding of these environments, recommendation can be made to the patient or the patients family members regarding changes that should be made.
