What is OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?
Occupational Therapy (OT) helps people who are experiencing difficulty in day-to-day activities due to injury, illness, or disability. Occupational therapists at Tall Tree follow a patient-centred practice to help you return to everyday activity and roles.
The scope of occupational therapy is wide, and OTs treat the whole person physically, mentally, and emotionally; supporting you in your journey to live life to the fullest. We provide a wide variety of services for any age, see below and contact us to learn more.
