What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is based on an in-depth understanding of the relationships between human activities, the environment and health. The occupational therapist takes the time to identify the challenges you are facing in order to establish a personalized action plan. Their goal? Help you to overcome the obstacles which hinder your ability to carry out your daily activities and/or your work and propose concrete actions to improve your physical, cognitive and social abilities, as well as reduce your disability situations. At Vertex, we specialize in the management of physical health issues and concussions.

Why consult an occupational therapist?

Several reasons may motivate an occupational therapy consultation:

  • Concussion rehabilitation
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Chronic pain
  • Pain management
  • Managing stress and emotions
  • Chronic fatigue and issues related to sleep
  • Transient mental health disorders (Adjustment disorder, major depression, anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress, etc.)

Occupational therapy meets varied and complex needs. Targeted interventions may include improving motor, cognitive and psychosocial skills, as well as adaptations to your environment (home, work, leisure, etc.), according to objectives personalized to your needs which will be determined during the assessment.
