Many people are curious about the relationship between Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy.  Occupational Therapy tends to focus more on evaluating and improving a person's functional abilities.  OT helps improve peoples's ability to carry out their daily tasks and increase their quality of life.  Physical Therapy tends to be more focused on evaluating and diagnosing movement dysfunctions as well as treating a person's injury itself.  Both PTs and OTs are trained extensively in anatomy and the muskoskeletal systems resulting in both being very knowledgeable about the injuries and rehabilitation.  Both professions work in a variety of settings including nursing facilities, schools, hospitals, in homes and outpatient and pediatric clinics.
