What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “therapy”? For many people, they automatically think of physical therapy. However, there is another very important type of therapy called occupational therapy which is often misunderstood by a lot of people. It is a type of therapy that focuses on the improvement of daily activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, etc. For most people, this can become a task after an accident or due to old age. Occupational therapy can help regain them back to their former glory.

Here are some more reasons why occupational therapy is important for your health:
- Encourage exercises
Occupational therapy encourages you to exercise more by involving you in functional activities as well as provide strength training to help improve your mobility. Strength and balance help in reducing the risk of falls and injuries for those with mobility issues. These physical exercises are carefully curated to work around your health issues and not cause more problems.
- Creates a health plan
A professional occupational therapist creates a health plan for you, including physical activities, outdoor activities, social stimulation, and cognitive training. This in turn help reduce the risk of depression and improve social and community involvement. A curated health plan is beneficial for you in the long run and helps prevent more health risks.
