Community Therapies


Community Therapies

Community Therapists are Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists who work in the community. Community therapists work in hospitals, health centers, schools, workplaces, client homes, Special Care Homes, group homes, sheltered workshops and developmental centers. The aim of the program is to enable clients to achieve optimum function within the appropriate community setting.

Physical Therapists use education, manual techniques and/or modalities to optimize clients’ function and well being.

Occupational Therapists use meaningful activity to enable clients to achieve optimal function in the areas of productivity, leisure and self-care.

Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists provide complementary services and both may be involved in one individual’s treatment program. The services they provide include:

  • Assisting with pain relief
  • Giving education regarding a specific condition
  • Providing support to care givers
  • Developing exercise and activity programs
  • Educating clients in preventing injury at work or home
  • Providing advice regarding appropriate equipment available to make life easier.
