Occupational Therapy at Kahuku Medical Center

The Transformative Power of Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) focuses on empowering self-confidence, independence, and safety awareness relative to activities we need or want to perform every day. In this sense, Occupation doesn't just concern your job; rather, it's a form of therapy that encompasses all the activities associated with daily living.

Occupational therapists work with patients of all ages experiencing injuries, illnesses, or disabilities that hinder their participation in regular daily routines. OT includes various therapeutic activities focused on self-care and exercises to improve overall health and quality of life.

Formulating OT care plans involves assessing a patient's physical limitations, including any underlying causes, and customizing therapy to facilitate improved fine and gross motor control. Tailored interventions and adaptive strategies help patients regain independence, develop essential life skills, and overcome barriers to successful participation in daily routines.
