Job Description for Licensed Occupational Therapist

A licensed occupational therapist helps in the rehabilitation of patients with an emphasis on helping individuals cope with a temporary or permanent impairment of physical or mental abilities. While physical therapists help patients recover and improve function, occupational therapists help them to adapt to their work and general life environment. The disabilities or injuries dealt with by licensed occupational therapists are frequently temporary in nature. For example, the therapist may help an office worker recovering from repetitive motion injuries (such as carpal tunnel syndrome) to reduce pain and prevent recurrence; the therapist may assess their work station and work with the patient develop recovery and maintenance strategies.
