Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation.
Physical Therapy is a healthcare profession that helps people to achieve their highest level of physical ability, at any stage of life, by using exercise, functional movements and a variety of physical agents.
