April is Occupational Therapy Month

A big thank you goes out to Occupation Therapists. April is Occupational Therapy Month and recognizes all the benefits this specialized healthcare provides. When injury strikes or long-term wear of joints and muscles require rehabilitation, an occupational therapist provides the necessary exercises to get us back into our daily routines. Simply getting out of bed may be a challenge or moving from one position to another becomes a problem we need to overcome. Occupational therapists have studied the movements required to make these transitions happen safely and to retrain our newly repaired body part to do the job. They know the therapies to help improve weakened muscles and alternatives when others fail us.
