Rheumatoid Arthritis: How Occupational and Physical Therapy Can Make a Difference

What about occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is similar to physical therapy but has a primary goal of helping you with the everyday skills that keep you independent or productive. This type of therapy is trying to maximize your ability to work or take care of yourself independently. The guidance of an occupational therapist might overlap those coming from a physical therapist, but this type of treatment really focuses on the practicality of your everyday life. This is extremely important for improving your overall quality of life.
