Reasons to See an Occupational Therapist There are many reasons to see occupational therapists. If a health condition, accident, injury, or disease has made it hard for you to take part in daily activities, occupational therapy may help you recover and maintain skills for everyday life. They are specialists with hand, wrist and arm injuries. Occupational therapy can help children: interact with others, learn self-care, such as getting dressed, develop routines at home or at school and hit developmental milestones.
