As a primary caregiver, a PHYSIOTHERAPY can assess, diagnose, and treat your injury through a combination of methods that may include: manual therapy; manipulation; acupuncture; modalities such as ultrasound, laser and heat; and/or exercise prescription.

Occupational Therapists (OT’s) are health care professionals who utilize evidence-based practice, research, scientific evidence, and a holistic perspective to promote independence, meaningful occupations, and patients' functional ability to fulfill their daily routines and roles. OTs ensure their patient-oriented interventions are effective. They have background training on the psychological, physical, emotional, and social makeup. OTs also have immense training in treating the whole body with the incorporation of neurological principles, anatomical or physiological concepts, and psychological perspectives. They support individuals across their lifespan to fulfill meaningful activities, known as occupations, individually by using therapeutic interventions.

Occupational therapists work in a variety of fields, including pediatrics, orthopedics, neurology, and geriatrics. The main approach of occupational therapy is to assist individuals in regaining skills as well as in increasing their abilities and decreasing limitations or disabilities of any kind. OTs evaluate the individual as well as their home and other immediate environments. Upon evaluating, they recommend, as needed, adaptive equipment and training in its use, guidance, and education for family members and caregivers. OTs determine a patient's individualized goals with the help of the person's family, caregiver, and doctor.

OTs customize each intervention to improve a person's ability to perform daily life activities and to reach his or her goals. OTs perform outcomes measures to evaluate the person's abilities and to ensure there is progress toward the goals. This outcome evaluation also helps the therapist to understand if an intervention plan must be changed.
