Outpatient Occupational Therapy (OT)

Make Appointments & Get Care

What is Outpatient Occupational Therapy?

Outpatient occupational therapy refers to therapy services provided to individuals who do not require overnight hospitalization or residential care. Instead, patients visit a clinic or therapy center for scheduled appointments to receive treatment and rehabilitation services. UR Medicine's outpatient occupational therapy aims to help individuals improve their ability to perform daily activities and tasks, regain independence, and enhance overall quality of life. This type of therapy may be recommended for a variety of conditions, such as injuries, surgeries, neurological disorders, developmental delays, or chronic illnesses. Our treatment plans are tailored to the specific needs and goals of each patient, and may include activities to improve mobility, strength, coordination, cognition, and self-care skills.
