Medstar Monday - Week 7

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists (OTs) specialize in the evaluation and treatment of: upper extremity and hand function (ie,
strength, coordination, dexterity, sensation), visual perceptual function (ie, how we perceive what we see), oculomotor
and vision skills (ie, how the eyes move and scan information), and cognitive skills. Occupational therapists are experts
in use of adaptive devices, assistive technologies, and external aides to help patients develop strategies for
independence when remediation of normal function cannot be achieved. In addition, OTs provide patients with the
skills required for the job of living by maximizing a patient’s component skills required for return to self care, home
management, work, sport, and driving. For example, for athletes suffering from concussion, OTs can help with
hand/eye/ball coordination, reaction time, and movement in space. In addition, some OTs are certified hand therapists,
which specialize in the treatment of arm and hand injuries, such as Gamekeeper Thumb and athletes who have had
Tommy John Surgery.
