Occupational Therapy Services

If you are recovering from an illness or injury that makes it difficult for you to do your job or schoolwork, care for yourself, complete household chores, or move around and participate in daily activities, your doctor may recommend occupational therapy.

The trained and licensed occupational therapists at Archbold's outpatient therapy locations in Thomasville, Cairo, Camilla and Quitman can help patients participate in their desired occupations with the therapeutic use of everyday activities.

Call us at 229.228.2000 today to make an appointment with one of our occupational therapists.

Why Is Occupational Therapy Important?

Occupational therapy (OT) is a branch of healthcare that helps people of all ages regain independence in their lives. Occupational therapists use everyday activities, exercises, and other therapies to help people address barriers that affect their emotional, social, and physical needs.

Occupational therapists use customized treatment plans that help patients:

  • Develop fine motor skills so they can grasp and release objects with their hands or develop good handwriting or computer skills

  • Improve hand-eye coordination

  • Master basic life skills such as bathing, dressing, brushing teeth, and feeding themselves at mealtime

  • Learn positive behaviors and social skills related to how they manage anger and frustration

  • Obtain assistive devices and medical equipment (wheelchairs, bathing equipment, communication aids, etc) that can help them perform daily tasks and improve mobility

What Conditions Can Be Treated with Occupational Therapy?

People of all ages and various conditions can benefit from occupational therapy.

Some of the conditions commonly treated with occupational therapy include:

  • Birth injuries or birth defects

  • Sensory processing disorders

  • Autism

  • Learning problems

  • Broken bones or orthopedic injuries
