Occupational therapy and physical therapy are closely related fields, and practitioners often work in tandem. Occupational therapy involves developing, recovering, and maintaining the meaningful occupations or activities of individuals, groups, or entire communities; while physical therapy involves promoting, maintaining and restoring a person’s wellbeing through examination, diagnosis, rehabilitation, and ongoing health promotion.
This volume explores both professions and where they intersect, including the conditions they treat, methods of treatment, and the histories of both fields. Also discussed are the latest developments, techniques, and technologies within these fields.
