Occupational Therapy

Myrtue’s Occupational Therapy assists recovering from an injury/illness or helping to maintain the performance of activities required for everyday life. Activities depend on the individual and may include household tasks, work or self-care. In pediatrics, our therapists focus on helping children develop the skills they need to grow into a functional, independent adult, regardless if the issue is physical or cognitive. This means addressing issues that can hamper a child’s ability to perform common tasks or progress through the stages of physical, social or cognitive development.woman manipulating the arm of a patient
