Occupational therapists are registered and certified healthcare professionals who apply principles from the biological and behavioral sciences in the evaluation and treatment of individuals limited by physical or psycho-social injury or illness.

Occupational therapists utilize everyday life activities, like bathing or dressing or cooking to help those with disabilities lead independent, productive and satisfying lives. Occupational therapists also address issues related to restoring gross and fine motor function and coordination, primarily of the upper extremity. When such an impairment hinders ones ability to fulfill his or her occupation, or life's role, OT may intervene with the use of specific treatment modalities including:

Activities of Daily Living Retraining 
 Endurance Training 
 Gross and Fine Motor Coordination Activities of the Upper Extremity 
 Range of Motion Exercises of the Upper Extremity 
 Strengthening Exercises of the Upper Extremity 
 Visual Perception Training 
 Wound and Scar Management of the Upper Extremity
