What Is Physical and Occupational Rehabilitation?
Whether you suffered an injury while working or playing sports, physical or occupational rehabilitation is essential in helping you recover. In fact, with proper physical therapy and rehabilitation, most people can return to their lives more quickly.
Physical therapists help people restore movement, strength and functional abilities. They also help manage pain that results from aging, illness or an injury, such as a torn ligament in the knee, to maximize a person’s quality of life. A physical therapist will develop a personalized plan and work with the individual to modify it as needed.
Likewise, an occupational therapist develops a custom plan to increase a person’s independence in day-to-day activities. Like PTs, they work to improve a person’s ability to function and use adaptation equipment, such as wheelchairs or walkers.
