Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy enables individuals of all ages to live life to its fullest no matter your health condition, disability, or risk factors.

One’s life is made up of occupations-meaningful everyday activities. These occupations can include many different roles, such as being a parent, a friend, a spouse, a tennis player, an artist, a cook, or a musician. We generally don’t think about our daily occupations until we have trouble doing them. Occupational therapy incorporates your valued occupations into your rehabilitation process.

Here at Southwest Health, our occupational therapists will keep the focus on the things you need and want to do to achieve your goals, stay as healthy and productive as possible, and maintain or rebuild your independence.
