An occupational therapist is a licensed professional who helps patients develop, improve, as well as maintain the skills needed for daily living. They address daily routines, medication adherence, self-management, and upper extremity strength. Occupational therapists utilize techniques to help patients regain function and independence. Occupational therapy also addresses strategies to conserve energy, reduce the demands of activities, and self-monitor to avoid exacerbations.
