Everyone has an occupation; our lives are made of them. These occupations
are the roles we play every day, including being a parent, an athlete,
a musician, or an employee.
So what is your primary occupation?
We tend not to think about our occupations until we experience an illness
or injury that interferes with our abilities to participate. Occupational
therapists will evaluate a patient’s daily routine, identify barriers
to involvement, and develop interventions to promote participation in
With a focus on function, occupational therapy practitioners work with
their patients to promote efficiency with dressing tasks, improve range
of motion and strength in the upper extremity after an orthopedic issue,
or regain muscle control and arm function after a stroke.
IVCH’s Occupational Therapy department can help you improve your
quality of life and level of independence, no matter the health condition.
