Occupational therapy

Like logopedics and physical therapy, the occupational therapy belongs to the health professions. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to develop or recover lost physical, mental and social skills as well as to regain independence.

Vocational integration for adults or better social integration for children (in school, daycare center and at home) are further therapy goals. Occupational therapy can be performed in hospitals, on an outpatient basis or in independent practices contracted with insurance companies. The therapeutic approach is holistic and does not only focus on motor skills but on the whole body.

Clients:

  • Apoplexy patients with cerebral bleeding
  • People with traumatic brain injury in a vegetable state
  • People with paraplegia
  • Children with behavioral disorders or developmental disorders
  • People with degenerative disease like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease
  • People with inherent physical or mental dysfunctions
