What Is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy helps individuals improve their quality of life and increase their independence by adapting everyday activities to their individual abilities.
Why Might I Need Occupational Therapy?
You may benefit from physical therapy if you experience
- A stroke

What to Expect with Occupational Therapy
After evaluation, your individual treatment plan might include
- Strength exercises: Your therapist will help you improve the use of your arm and hand for everyday tasks.
- Addressing neuro-vision changes: You might experience blurry or double vision after your diagnosis. Your therapist can help you reduce these symptoms and adapt your everyday life around them.
