Is an Occupational Therapist like a psychologist?
If psychology means encouraging our patients to do better, yes, we have training in psychology as any other health professional. While psychologists treat through emotional exercises, we treat through rehabilitative exercises.

How are you different from a physiotherapist?
We look at the individual's function. Physiotherapists may look at muscles groups. Occupational Therapists will take these groups of muscles and see how it affects your life at home, at work and during your leisure activities.


They will provide ways to rehabilitate or compensate for your new condition. For example, Occupational Therapists work to find solutions to dress with one arm, suggest ergonomic adaptations to prevent back pain at the office, and propose strategies to facilitate the autonomy of a child with autism.
