OT enriches the lives of our patients
Occupational Therapy (OT) Month at CORA is in full swing! Now that we know what OT is all about along with a greater understanding of the important role that OTs have in improving the lives of our patients (remember this video), it’s time we acknowledge their work with the upper extremities and fine motor skills.
The impact of OT for upper extremities and fine motor skills
Our clinicians helps people regain strength and function after injury or illness, manage positioning and splinting, and provide adaptations to fine motor tasks as needed to help enrich the lives of our patients. Rehabilitation of the upper extremities can address grasp, dexterity, pinch, bilateral coordination, utensil use and much more!
Here’s an inexpensive and multisensory fine motor activity for pediatric patients:

And how about for adults? As an Occupational Therapist or COTA working in the adult rehab settings, you will see your fair share of patients with a neurological disorder that affects their fine motor coordination. Here is a wonderful resource we want to share with all of you that contains some fun and functional fine motor areas to address with adult patients.
More information, OT challenges, acts of service … oh my!
