It is a unique blend of practices and assessments to help a person solve the issues that interfere with their ability to care for themself, be productive at work or school, or take part in leisure activities. These issues can be cause by an injury, accident, illness or disability.
At PiOT, our occupational therapy is a client-centered approach that helps a person recuperate from physical, mental, emotional or spiritual illness or injury. We focus on our client’s goals to improve their quality of life.
