Occupational therapists (OT’s) apply research and proven techniques to help people get back in motion.
They are trusted health care professionals with extensive academic education and clinical experience who examine, diagnose, and then prevent or treat conditions that limit the body's ability to move and function in daily life. Certified Occupational therapist assistants (COTA’s) are educated and licensed clinicians that work under the direction and supervision of an occupational therapist. COTAs work with occupational therapists to treat patients of all ages who have medical problems or other conditions that limit their abilities to move forward with their lives.
