Physiotherapy VS Occupational Therapy
An occupational therapist (OT) treats the whole person. Whether they’re recovering from injuries, or have developmental or cognitive disabilities affecting their motor skills, emotions or behaviour, OTs are helping people to get back and fully engaged in their daily life.
A physiotherapist treats the patient’s actual impairment from a biomechanical perspective (for example, recovery from a hamstring tear).
A physiotherapist tries to improve the impairment itself by lessening the pain, increasing mobility, or aligning body/muscle movements back to normal.
Both professions however, focus on preventing injuries and can help people avoid surgery or a long term-reliance on medications.
