What conditions do occupational therapists treat?

  • Amputees and people with special prosthetics
  • Stroke or heart attack victims
  • People with arthritis, multiple sclerosis or permanent disabilities
  • People with mental health problems
  • People with head injuries
  • People suffering from severe burns and spinal cord trauma
  • Fabricate custom orthotic devices to increase functional ability or prevent a deformity of the upper extremities
