Occupational Therapy

Call Great River Health Today to Learn More

Occupational therapy is less about restoring a patient's muscles and more about getting a patient re-acclimated to their everyday life. Following a serious medical issue, many patients face both physical and psychological challenges that could diminish their confidence and independence. Occupational therapy is about getting these patients back to their day-to-day routine, where they are sustaining themselves and contributing to their community again.
