Physical Therapy is the treatment of body ailments by various physical or non medicinal means. This can include the use of a variety of exercise techniques and various modalities, such as heat, massage, cold, ultrasound, electrical stimulations, TENS, traction, manual therapy, to name a few.
Occupational Therapy helps to achieve greater independence by clients. Includes rehabilitation of neuropsychological deficits (memory, attention, complex reasoning), motor function, sensory function (vision, perception of touch), interpersonal skills (e.g. social skills). The medium of treatment usually involves the use of purposeful activities, which have some meaning and relevance to client’s lifestyle (these are also called ‘occupations’ and include routine behaviors associated with work, leisure and self care).
