Occupational Therapy: Digging Deeper with Its Purpose

Daily personal tasks such as making our beds, bathing, and grooming may have already been so ritual and routinely for us. Because of this, we oftentimes fail to appreciate our ability and capability to do all these—until the day when we are unable to do any or all of it. When certain circumstances arise, stripping us of our ability to perform even the most basic of tasks, we are left feeling frustrated, down-trodden, or even depressed.

This is when Occupational Therapy comes into play. Strictly speaking, occupational therapy is a form of therapy for individuals recuperating or recovering from a physical or mental illness that encourages rehabilitation through the performance of basic activities required in day-to-day life. To put it simply, the role of occupational therapists is to help patients participate in daily activities when the ability to do so has been compromised due to a disability, injury, or illness.

Although it is such a valuable service, occupational therapy is often times considered as the “best-kept secret in health care”. This shouldn’t be the case, as occupational therapy is a very valuable and important service and one which a lot of patients greatly need and will appreciate. We may see it as merely a therapy we need to spend money on just for the patient to know how to take a bath or prepare their meals again. But on a greater scale, it is only because we are fully capable of doing all these daily personal tasks that we take it for granted. We miss to seeing how fulfilling it will be for the patient to be able to perform all the daily activities in life on their own once again.

Occupational therapy truly is an important aspect of the medical and healthcare field and should be shared more in the society for those who need it. Occupational therapy goes beyond just helping patients be able to perform daily tasks again. It also encourages patients to strengthen their sense of independence and allow them to live the life they actually want to live.
